Let the cherubs sing a beautiful melody, jump back in time with this 1930-40’s Jacobean. I couldn’t resist the urge to shabby chic this beauty that tells a story. I painted her in Crisp Cotton by Wicked Finishes, applying with a water mister and brush. I then decided to distress her to show her age. I used a very fine sand paper to reveal her wood undertones, randomly aging on the edges. I then applied hand stamped cherubs, chandelier patterns, fluer dis , and link work around the doors and sides. I used Redesign by Prima stamps. Using a ink pad that I purchased also, I covered each stamp with ink then applied the design. . I then stained the top in a java gel stain with a damp sponge smoothing it out evenly. I left the bottom in it’s natural state to match the top and backsplash. I then sealed the entire piece in General Finishes top coat flat out flat. I also used a damp sponge to spread it with. My mother loved Cherubs so this piece is special to me. I named her after my mother... Sára’s Gate.
