Gun Metal Buffet

By Shabby Roots Boutique in Vallejo, CA.

 This was a custom paint job I did for a client. She loved the curves on this piece so much that she wanted to eccentuate them even more. I thought that giving this piece a color blended effect was the perfect route to go. We wanted to make sure the color blend was very subtle and not harsh at all. This was easier said than done, I spent countless hours getting the blend just right. It was well worth it in the end because I was so happy with the final result!

I also added highlights to the raised areas and darker shading on the indents to make everything pop that much more. This is a personal favorite of mine, I hope you also enjoy it!
