I finally painted something for my house since becoming a retailer. It seems every time I paint for me. I end up selling the piece and finding something else. I wish I had taken a before picture. It was probably just how you imagine. It was gold with good lines. And now after 2 coats of vintage white a coat of clear wax and a coat of aging cream. I have what I saw in my head. I love when a vision comes to life. I think that is why I enjoy my job so much.
