Diamonds, Stripes and Swarovski crystals!
Gabrielle Pennington owner of, Oomph!, is getting ready to launch her new retail store in the Bradenton/Sarasota, FL, area and she shares her beautiful hand painted unique coffee table with the American Paint Company community!
The table belonged to the customer. It is solid wood and well crafted. They had it for years but were bored with the originally blonde piece and didn’t find it to be a fit for their new home. They looked for something else, but couldn’t really find anything they liked it its place. They had considered painting it for a while and decided to do so upon their arrival to Sarasota. This piece is my first commissioned piece, and first time doing something this style. The customer requested a “statement piece”. Their desired elements were diamonds, stripes, and checkerboard…the rest was left up to me. We met at their home to pick up the table and chat about their expectations.
It fits perfectly with their expectations and in their home. They loved it enough to give me another piece to complete for their guest room.
I originally had concerns about how the paint would do under the design stipulations…taping, taping and more taping. It was a home run for both the customer and myself.
Gabrielle used American Paint Company paint to create her piece using; A-maize-ing, Cannonball, Nana’s Cupboard, Liberty, Home Plate. She also used, Swarovski crystals (Elements) Amethyst and Opal fire and sealed it with polycrylic. Great job!
