A Little Gold Goes a Long Way

There is something so regal about the combination of black and gold. It’s timeless, classic and can be used in most decor too. This little plant stand started out with brown stain and now looks fresh with a bit of bling….

The character on this stand was very understated in its original finish. We used Caviar by Dixie Belle Paint company and it only needed one coat. But there are two coats because we just have to be sure-LOL…

We used the Gilded Baroque Scrollwork Decor Transfer™ set and added the large design on the top. Then we added two smaller images on the legs. You can layer the transfers too. That allows you to create your own custom images or designs to fit the projects you are working on.

At this point, we knew we needed to add a bit of wax on the legs and edges. The wax will not only carry out the metallic theme going on here, but also highlight those pretty curves and details in the woodwork too.   You can dip your finger into the wax and then gently glide your finger along the edges in a smooth motion to get just the edges. If you want more coverage-use a wax brush for detailing.
