In honor of the “premier officier” Friday, I am showing you one of my first and favorite “Redouxs”
This wasÂ a thrift store find.Â Purchased for a few dollars when we moved into our current home.Â I knew I wanted to “redoux” furniture, had tried my hand at a few things, and this time, decided to let my creativity take a new level.Â I did a bunch of different finishes, used Black wax to age it.
Â Rubbed Gold Paint on the inset, then to really get the old look I wanted.
a friend who owned an Antique storeÂ suggested I take a blow torch to it!
It is a tricky thing to do, and I recommend a lot of practice, and appropriate safety gear……
Â but it does create a really neat effect of making the paint “bubble up”
I will publish a few of the best on Monday, so be sure to check back!
