The last redesign I shared with you was a frenchy table inspired by peeling plaster. That table is actually one of my favorites. Today, I decided to create a few complimentary pieces. I started with this pair of corbels.
I found them like this.
I believe they were supposed to mimic drapes. I wanted to give them a light curtain feel, so I drybrushed them a soft pink.
This mirror required a little more layering.
I wanted a partner to the table.
So I used the same technique.
Here they are together.
The table, corbels, and mirror, work well with this redesigned frame of mine.
I also did a gesso wash on several frames, leaving a hint of the dark finish underneath.
I had fun creating these complimentary pieces with their subtle hues. I must have been in a romantic mood. Will this mood continue?
More redesigns waiting to be shared. See ya soon.
Love how you share your process....beautiful work.:)ReplyDelete
I just love all those frames, beautiful job!ReplyDelete
I love everything you do. I have a wonderful old table on casters with a pediment underneath where the legs come together. I also have some great old frames in varying states of disrepair. I would like to do something similar to what you've done. Being a relatively new follower to your blog, do you have a tutorial somewhere that tells what paints you use and explains in a little more detail what your painting techniques are? I sure would love some pointers. Thank you so much and I really enjoy your blog.ReplyDelete
