Does this jewelry cabinet look familiar? I painted it a couple of years ago and decided I didn’t like the color anymore… I wanted a RED jewelry cabinet for the Christmas season.

I had a couple of friends over on that painting day. One of them gave this the first coat for me. I have to say that when I first saw it I hated it! WAY too bright for me. What do you think?
Well, I was ready to throw it out but my other friend talked me into going on. She gave it another coat. After she left and the paint was dry I decided to give it a bit more character by stenciling the sides of the drawers. Then I aged it a bit by adding some burnt umber paint to the finish I was going to use.
This is the first time I used Triple Thick Gloss Glaze. It lived up to it’s name… it’s THICK. And it gave the project a super hard shiny coat.
I wanted the handles to stand out even more so I highlighted them with some Metallic Lustre. I brushed it on, then dry brushed silver highlights all over the jewelry cabinet.
Here’s what the stencil looked like on the back.
