And after Tea Stained Taupe Spray Wax. I love how it brings out the detail of the frame.
I repainted it in Olympic Gold by Modern Masters and added a piece of metal which I painted with Raven, also by Vintiques to create a magnetic chalkboard for custom piece. I love how they both turned out. Two completely different looks.

Good morning and HaPpY NeW YeAr!!!! I think this table has the most products I’ve ever used on one little piece. LOL. I broke down the the products and the process I used below. I love the end result. You can never really go wrong with mint!
The moment I saw this desk I thought “Jessica Rabbit” Most likely, because of the curves. So I set out to paint her along with a coordinating mirror the color of Miss Rabbit’s dress in an image I found.
Jessica Rabbit: You don’t know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.
Eddie Valiant: You don’t know how hard it is being a man looking at a woman looking the way you do.
In 1927 (Oklahoma born) New Mexico cowgirl, Miss Vonceil Viking won a $25,000.00 wager when she rode her horse, “Broadway” from New York to Los Angeles. She told a reporter she was making the ride, “so as to prove the hardiness and courage of today’s American girl.”She later appeared in several early silent movies. I came across this fine picture of her and used it as inspiration for this piece. I went with the more muted colors (which is not the norm for me) in CeCe Caldwell’s Paint line of Miss Viking’s blouse, fringed vest and skirt getup. Thank you for looking.
Miss Vonceil Viking, claimed her name, Vonceil, “is a Cherokee Indian word for of the sky.”
Fifi Chic Vanity and Mirror all dressed up in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and my favorite gold gilding. I’m officially, madly in love with this paint. French Enamel with an Artissimo Wash. Delightful shades of blue. I love how the color varies throughout the day according to the light coming into the room.
Add an element of grandeur to your home with this vintage solid wood Frenchy Commode fashioned with an aura of elegance. Hand painted in vibrant layers of golds and blues to create a simply eye-catching piece, embellished with opulent gold ormolus, distressed then glazed in a deep whiskey hue. Three dovetailed drawers. Scalloped front. Authentic craftsmanship accompanied by fabulous character. Very out-of-the-ordinary.
Would be stunning in an entry way, hallway, boudoir or as a dressing table in a powder room. She’s also ready to go onstage as a prop in a bridal photo shoot. An heirloom piece for those who fancy details, mystic and the furniture of yesteryear.
