Georgian Splendour

This wonderful Georgian cabinet came to me in a sorry state.  The top was complety warped and needed replacing. It must have been a beautiful piece in it's day but was now negleted and in need of some love.

I didn't really have a plan, I just wanted it to have the wow factor. I started with a custom mix of Autentico Grand Cru with GF Coastal Blue milk paint. I've mixed the Autentico with GF before and it works perfectly.  I then used a custom mix of Autentico Paint in blue, GF Coastal Blue and GF Seagull Grey to create the faux finish, leaving bits of the custom mix Grand Cru and Coastal Blue to peak through. I then used gold leaf on all the detailing but kept it quite rustic.  Finishing off with GF Topcoat in Satin and adding the gorgeous gold flower handles.
