Green Goddess

By Karen Oshaughnessy Emporium K, Wicklow Ireland, Owner at Emporium K at Emporium K in Dunlavin, WW, IE

St Patrick’s Day was approaching, and being Irish I just had to honor our National day with presenting a piece in green. This large chest of drawers was stripped and primed and then painted in a coastal blue/ emerald mix. I stenciled a rolling flower and leaves motif over the front in a weaving pattern in GF burnished pearl, and also used burnished pearl to highlight edges and corners. The exterior was then sealed using High Performance Top Coat and the interior stained in GF antique oak stain. The handles were given a golden treatment using Rub N Buff.
