Adding Glam ~ Bombay Chest!

I was able to turn this Bombay chest into a more glamours beauty by adding champagne metallic  paint from Modern Masters.  

Bombay Chest- Modern Maters Metallic Paints

This Bombay chest was not an old piece of furniture.  This piece is made out of real wood, but  it was actually one that you assemble your self.  

Bombay Chest- before

She was in good shape and just had a few gouge marks in the top.  Most people get rid of a piece of wood furniture because the wood tone is out of style or does not go with their decor choices.  This was the case of this piece, by adding some paint, she has a totally different look.

I decided to use the Champagne metallic color and paint the handles black to give her a glamorous look.  The inside of the drawers were already black, so they fit perfectly with the details of the chest.  

Bombay Chest- black glaze gives it detail.

After I painted, I applied a black glaze to help pull out the details on the sides and the top.  I also slightly glazed the entire body to give the piece a rich deeper color.  

Bombay Chest- great detail in the handles

I love how pretty the handles are and how much better they look being painted black.

This one sold quickly!  I would love to find some more pieces like this!
