By Rebekah Wilson, Revive, Mobile, AL, Artisan at Revive in Creola, AL.

Jewell is a Bassett MCM piece. I watered down some General Finishes Dark chocolate and applied 2 coats all over. Seal with crystalac waterbased satin. Used Modern Masters Copper on the legs, inset areas, & hardware. The top drawers I ran out of patina spray so I did a faux patina finish using some modern masters copper, watered down GF Patina Green, some GF Dark Chocolate some watered down deco art americano cadium yellow and watered down light turquoise acrylic craft paint and I shaved some earthtoned colored chalk sticks (rust, dark brown, dark red) into this while still wet. Once dry, I sealed the faux patina areas with GF Flat Out Flat.
