Burnished Pearl

"This sweet antique vanity was brought back to life by Silverleaf Interiors using a blend of Ballet Pink and Antique White. The crowing touch was Burnished Gold Pearl Effects on the carvings."

This lovely Linen cabinet was given a fresh new look. I stripped and primed first and then used Coastal Blue over the whole piece. The interiors were stained using Antique oak stain. I stenciled each top corner of the cabinet using Burnished Pearl and also used burnished pearl on each leg. The piece was then sealed with High Performance Top Coat, and she was ready to go. 

This petite antique writing has lovely proportions and a solid frame so just needed a visual update to make her more modern. After a full strip and prime, I painted her in Gf linen and used a Walnut stain for the interior. I replaced the leather writing top also. The golden sun rays was stenciled using GF Burnished pearl and then the whole piece sealed using High Performance Top Coat. The original drop handles were polished using gold Rub N buff. 

This glamorous pair was made over with General Finishes Royal Purple Milk Paint and Burnished Pearl Effects by Vantique Junktion.    
Absolutely stunning buffet by Julie McDowell - Design Artist!   "To say this was a labour of love would be an understatement. I have hand embossed every surface of this beast. I used different stencils and used Durhams Wood Putty to create a very flat raised stencil. It was then sanded down to make it very smooth but still raised. General Finishes Holiday Red as my base coat, GF Pearl Effects in Burnished and GF Van Dyke Glaze applied without a top coat on the pearl. Three coats of GF...
"I'm sort of obsessed with this buffet. In it's first life, this was a hair ✂️✂️✂️ station. In it's second life, I picture it in an entryway or modified as a bathroom vanity.   It is painted in a 50/50 mix of General Finishes Queenstown Gray & Lamp Black, with subtle black lowlights & Burnished Pearl Effects in the details, sealed with High Performance Gloss & Flat, and Fusion Mineral Paint Ageing Wax for depth." - Flipping Fabulous    
"I’d been saving my Holiday Red for awhile. It’s a very intimidating color. But I’m glad I waited for the right piece. Accented with Burnished Pearl Effects, and shaded/aged with Pitch Black Glaze. It brought my vision (a luxurious piece tucked away in the attic of a castle) to life. I LOVE these products. I have many other brands at my disposal, and most within a quick drive, but GF is worth the time and gas. Thank you for making such awesome products!" - Vantique Junktion

"I'm seriously obsessed with this desk. I can't remember the last time I loved something so much! Painted in Fusion Mineral Paint Seaside, with Homestead Blue shading, then washed with General Finishes Coastal Blue. She has an upwards General Finishes Somerset Gold and Burnished Pearl Effects ombre. Sealed with General Finishes High Performance Flat, I added Fusion Mineral Paint Aging Wax to give her a vintage feel. The old hardware was gross, so I splurged on these fantastic pulls." - Flipping...

My journey for my inspiration began with a newspaper article I read about Louis XVI King of France, but more interestingly his wife Marie Antionette the Queen of exquisite taste.  She amassed artworks of extraordinary opulence and beauty.  Particularly her furniture collection, the extravagant life of Queen Marie is surrounded by elegant French furniture and fabrics, very beautiful designs that are still prevalent today. 

So I dedicate my entry piece to one of the most trend setting...
