Sometimes in life when you are faced with a challenge it pushes you creatively. It forces you to think outside the box and it can create great results. I experience this recently when I decided to participate in The Fab Furniture Flipping Contest. It is a monthly contest with a different them and sponsor every month. This month the theme is geometric design and the sponsor is General Finishes . The have some great products such as milk paint, gel stains and finishing waxes. I am not really a modern person, and I don't really like most geometric patterns. It took me forever to find a direction to go in.
This buffet was one I did a while back, and it used to work well in my old dinning room but when I decided to redo my dinning room it no longer goes with it. I love it though, Ive always wanted one and I don't think I will ever get rid of it, so a new face lift it got!!
As you can see I chose to incorporate a diamond pattern for my geometric design. I really love the way it turned out. I used several products to achieve this look including Snow White, Seagull Gray, Lamp Black, Antique Walnut gel stain, and Pearl Effects Burnished Pearl. I also used a gray stain. I had a lot of fun completing this project. I love playing with different and techniques.
This is the first time I ever painted this pattern, and I did it by hand, with a pencil and a ruler. I was not that difficult, but I will defiantly be doing more of this.
