Ready for some COLOR?


 The Challenge:  Make this cedar chest...
look like this candlestick.  All righty then!

Ready to see me make a big, HUGE mess with someone's special Lane cedar chest?  Then continue reading.

Step # 1:  Add some texture.  I watered down some spackling and used a paint brush to apply it in all different directions and super messy.  I did about 3 coats of this. 

Step #2:  Add some layers of color.  I sprayed orange and then used a dry brush and just wiped bits of color over the orange.  It looks like someone's faux painting nightmare doesn't it? 

Step # 3:  Spray a fine mist of red over the whole mess.  But, wait!  It gets worse!!!
 Step #4:  Use a putty knife to scrape off some of the texture. 


 Step #5:  Using 100 grit sandpaper, sand it by hand so the colors will come through. 
 Step #6:  Use a paint brush to wipe glaze all over, making sure to get into the grooves of the texture.  And then of course wipe off the excess glaze. :)

Seriously how scared are you right now?  I kept thinking "Good thing I know how to strip furniture".  Ha ha

So after sealing it here is the final product...drumroll please...




 And the inspirational candlestick.  It turned out pretty close. 

My favorite part of the refinish:  I asked my client if she wanted to add any moulding to the bottom or have me putty the designs on the front and she said she didn't want to change it too much since it was a graduation gift from her mom.  :) Ha ha  Hopefully her mom feels like she didn't change it "too much".

  25. Holy Moly!!! That is spectacular!!! I love the tip of using some watered-down spackling for texture. That's simply brilliant. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. I wonder if that young lady is going to come back to you in a few years when she thinks "what was I thinking with this orange???" ;)
