This is one of my all time favorite pieces. I love the color and texture combination. The piece came to me with a few needed repairs, mainly the top being in bad shape. Instead of repairing the veneer, I chose to add a texture. I used Artsiville texture medium and my decorative roller to create a faux hammered effect. Painted with MM Antique Copper, accented with AS Florance, added copper foil and glazed with GF Van Dyke Brown, sealed with GF High Performance Top coat. Body was painted with AS Florence then clear/dark wax dry brushed with MM Antique Copper. Doors were textured and rolled to achieve a hammered effect, then I embossed a raised stencil for added depth and interest.  The doors were then painted and glazed like the top. Inside was painted with Antique Copper and sealed.
