Winner! Old world aged Armoire

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

Winning Category

This armoire was a custom color requested by a client, she wanted sage fade to yellow. The top of the armoire is Lichen, Sage, and Spanish moss. All bended for a ombre effect. The yellow was graduated up from the bottom to blend with the sage. The brown was added for old world effect. Vintage hardware was applied, and the copper lustre added.  IOD (Iron Orchid Designs) moulds were used in the form of keyholes on the front. Cler wax was used to seal. 

Over all look is aged, and old world. Ombre effect to blend and highlight.
