One of my favorite parts of doing custom orders is pushing me to think outside of the box. I often feel like I get stuck in a rut. I find a few colors I love and paint piece after piece the same color, sometimes it is nice at times broaden the horizon.
When I picked up these pieces from my customer she told me she wanted a yellow, that wasn't too yellow or too gold. So the hunt began for the perfect shade of yellow.
And here it is.....Whole Grain by Valspar
I slightly distressed these pieces. Whenever I distress I always try to figure out where a piece will take the most wear and tear and start the distressing there. I always distress edges and corners.
This piece also has a brown glaze on it and is topped off with a satin clear coat.
I love the fun details of these pieces, the new color and glaze really help it stand out!
