Oil Spill Dresser

By Tessa at Room Thirteen, Brighton, UK, Owner at Room Thirteen in Brighton, GB

This dresser started life as a dressing table but it lost its mirrors along the way.  I decided to make it into a piece that the new owner could decide it's specific use so it will fit into any surrounding as a desk, dresser, dressing table, hall table or even in the kitchen! I was initially inspired by my work apron which has so many different colours on it now, telling a real story of my projects! Using 4 different colours and 2 different Glaze Effects, blending and sanding and using different consistencies this piece has come to resemble an oil spill. Adding mouldings for extra interest and highlighting with gold wax which catches the light beautifully.
