Red Hot Apothacary chest

OH NO!!!
What are we to do with this hot mess?
I found this on craigslist. I couldn't wait to get her home and play.

BAM!!!





Slapped some red lipstick on this girl and she is ready to go! This piece was so much fun to paint. I layered and layered paint with special embossing applications (see travertine on our website) then distressed it for some character. I parted with her and it "SOLD" within days. These types of pieces sell for thousands of dollars at the black bamboo in downtown kansas city. That's were my inspiration for this piece came from. Theres' of course are hundreds of years old and have original paints and laquers. But with a little paint and technique those laquer looks can be easily duplicated and save yourself a lot of cash. Ancient Chinese Secret ; ) Ciao for now
