There were cherubs escaping everywhere the day this cabinet was painted.
Started with a 1960's cabinet.
In great shape, but tres passe!
Great hiding places for all your junk.
This space was not too dark so no painting here.
Sanded the gloss off.
Used Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in "Escape".
A tropical blue.
Mod Podged this delightful image from The Graphics Fairy.
Yes, that one crooked one did disturb me until the cabinet was finished and it was not noticeable.
Two cherubs gossiping on a branch.
Sea shell shaped.
They are probably planning their escape.
Dreaming of a tropical isle.
Mixed up Farragoz gesso with powdered gold pigment.
Coated the whole thing.
Heavily with several coats on the edges.
Then sanded the heck out of it with both a hand sander and a sanding sponge.
Added two additional coats of Mod Podge over the cherubs.
Then three coats of wax.
Loving the results!
Even Chucks commented on how pretty it turned out.
Thanks, Karen, for providing the image.
The Graphics Fairy always comes through.
Find images here!
The "artsy" shot.
The Escaping Cherubs will be either in Booth W-10 or C-23 at Riverfront Antique Mall in North Augusta, South Carolina.
It was a wonderful day to spend painting with cherubs.
