Geode Inspired Console

By Melissa Geskie, Owner/Artist at The Top Drawer RVA in Henrico, VA.

Amazing geode like finish, 70's console from boring to stunning! Multiple shades of teal and blue. Combined to make a geode like effect. Metallic leaf sheets, placed in the middle.  Sealed with Crystal Clear Paste Wax. Dark wax and brown paint used for aging effect. Dripping down the front and sides. A piece that will change depending on the light in the room. Amazing color movement and depth!
