Hi Everyone, I am still painting some furniture for my art gallery just to add another dimension. The wing back chair I painted sold immediately so I needed something else to put in that empty spot. I painted this cute little table "Refined Red", a pretty color chalk paint from Vintage Furniture Paint Inc. I love the paint because you don't have to wax it...the wax is already in it, and it goes on very smoothly and feels amazing to the touch. Inside the drawer, I papered with a little hounds tooth red and white check. But the top is what I am most proud of. I painted a key, a letter and a pocket watch in Trompe l'oeil, which is a French technique and means to "fool the eye". The objects, through shading, appear to just lie there on the table. You feel like you could just pick them up!
