I found this beautiful hand carved cabinet on the internet.
Don’t you just love the detail?
When I bought it, the lady said the inside shelf had always been missing. I brought it back to my store, and heard a loud bang when setting it down. When we opened up the doors, there was the shelf in place! It had wedged itself against the very back and been hidden all these years. It was in pretty rough shape especially the top.
I painted it with American Paint Company Desert Cactus mixed with Home Plate.
I lightly sanded the paint and applied Top Coat on the entire piece. Then, to highlight the detailed sections, I mixed a metallic in with the Top Coat for just those areas.
I let everything dry for a day then it was clear waxed and buffed.
