From Trash to Treasure

Happy 4th. to all my followers. Thanks so much for the lovely comments.

Here is "from the trash to a treasure"

I found this little desk/ vanity

in the curb, take a look, I video a little bit but didn't talk, oh
well, I pushed the wrong button, but its nice, a bit of veneer damage on the top, but it adds character to the piece.
I will continue the tutorial for you.

Step 1: I mixed equal parts of Provence, Old white, and a bit of water, the paint is too thick.

Step 2: Mix a dark gray in equal parts and paint the rossettes.

Step 3: Mix gesso and paint rossettes, repeat with paint and gesso for the aged look several times. this is a little pic...

to be continued,
