Yesterday I sd a tutorial on how to create a herringbone pattern using Vintage Storehouse Metallic Powders and Wax. It was a super fun project to work on and I’m excited to show you the finished piece! Without further ado, al me to introduce you to Jackson. He’s a bit of a ladies man ;).
Jackson came to me in a bit of a distressed state. The top actually had leather inlays, and my original plan was to salvage them and just restore the wood around the leather… but it just so happens that a good chunk of veneer was missing from the the wood around the inlays. I decided fixing it was going to be one of those things that turned into a complete nightmare – so I ripped the leather & the veneer off. Luckily underneath was some decent solid wood, so I sanded it down, gave it some slight distressing and stained it a gorgeous warm brown color!
Another problem I had with this piece is that I cannot stand this type of hardware! This is just a personal preference type of thing, but I can’t tell you how much I hated this hardware. I had to do something about it. So I decided to compliment the Metallic Stencil I had in mind with some silver knobs from Hobby Lobby.
I painted the entire piece with our new line of Chalk Based Paint that is coming out in June 2015 in the color “Nightingale”. This is a dark, moody blue that reminds me of the color of ink.
I added the Metallic Powder in “Skyscraper” using Fiddes Wax and a Herringbone Stencil I picked up from Royal Design Studio… but you can read more about that on yesterdays post!
