Bohemian Beauty-Decopauge

By KT Lyons, Owner/Designer KT Lyons Design, Maple Grove, MN, Owner/Designer at KT Lyons Design in Maple Grove, MN.

This Bohemian Beauty will be the focal point in your home. She is so beautiful!  What was once an antique buffet in dire need of a makeover, is now the bell of the ball.  

She had layers of aged veneer cracking and aging.  Her doors were falling off and she was far from pretty.  We painted her in a bright fuschia and added  a floral napkin decopauge to her top drawers. We decided she needed new hardware and it should shine like jewelry.  We hand painted her hardware with liquid gold leaf.  It was the perfect bling.  Finally, satin polyurethane covered her gown in lasting protection.  A true bell of the ball.
