This piece was actually painted in an entirely different color than it shows!  I thought I wanted to do a light grey but it didn't look right so I ordrered another color, Peppercorn from Wise Owl.  It was dry brushed with Limestone by Wise Owl.  I used a wash of limestone to created the highlights in the middle and around the doors. I then used the metallic acrylic multi surface folkart gold for the details. I sealed this piece in General Finishes High Performance Top Coat (all of my entries use this, it's AMAZING) - anyway,  I then added some black glaze that Wise Owl sent me as a sample. I used that to darken the areas inside the doors and around the doors.  Sealed again the General Finishes High Performance top coat and then applied rub n buff over some of the metallic gold areas to make it pop more and around the top edge.  Rub n Buff was also applied to cleaned hardware.
