Making art. Painting furniture artistically. The same principles apply. Make the color pleasing to the eye. Add textures and more color/s. Work the whole surface until you and your client are satisfied. Seal to protect. Head home for a dip in the pool... (See below.) And I sold a painting last week!
|The finished desk.|
|The finished file drawers. Yellow, gold and black over red.|
|Before - great functional piece - awful "pecan" finish. Doors, hardware drawer fronts removed for sanding.|
|Gracie in the dryer. The metal was cool and the house was hot... Doesn't she look pitiful?|
