I got this color, Sapphire, by Wise Owl, as a prize in a contest. I knew I wanted to pair that with something bright, just didn't know exactly what! After two coats of Sapphire,  I dry brushed Greenery, by Wise Owl, on the legs.  I wet wiped back a little bit of the blue in certain spots.  This piece took a while to finish because it sat there, as I stared at it, thinking it needed something else.  Ok, lets add some Sparkling Unicorn SPiT.  I applied the dark blue to the entire piece to enhance that Sapphire underneath, so now there is a beautiful glittery sheen on top!  Then I applied the pink sparkle spit to parts of the legs and the very bottom of the legs, almost like a dipped look.  ......Still needed more!  My heart wasn't done creating!  I decided to gold leaf it in random spots. I didn't want this table to look perfect, I wanted it too look like the gold was chipping away.  I then took some gold metallic acrylic craft paint and went over certain spots and also used that to apply half a stencil up top.  The hardware was also gold leafed with a worn look.  The piece was sealed in General Finishes Arm R Seal in Gloss to really achieve the shine for that Sparkling SPiT!!! 

I'm so glad I decided to go away from the common greys, whites, blacks that I normally sell and really try something different.  This piece is one of my bolder creations!
