Surrealist decoupaged image with hand painting to extend the image to both sides.

My starting point for this original Alfred Cox mid century tallboy was this quirky decoupage paper by Mint by Michelle. As I love pieces to look old and worn I decided to distress this paper. The umbrella is particularly distressed which I love. I’ve also used texture for the dark waxes to grab on to, when rubbed back they leave an authentic looking aged appearance.
I used paints by Annie Sloan to continue the scene around the entire piece. I thought the couple would look right at home standing in the sea so this has been painted around the sides too.
The top has been given a faux marble paint effect and sealed with clear wax and buffed to a super shiny, glossy finish. This is a nod to the distressed umbrella the gent is holding.
Inside I have left the sides of the top drawer unpainted so the Alfred Cox logo is left visible. The separators and divider strip in the drawer has been painted a bright red…a nod to the dress.
The remaining drawers have a blue and white sky feel look to the insides along with a bright red strip down the middle of each drawer.
All drawer bases have been lined with a cloud/sky themed paper and sealed with dead flat matt varnish for protection.
My 1st time using Cornish Milk Mineral Paint, I used this for the legs and frame in black. Very impressed with the smooth and sleek finish.
The ends of the legs were painted in gold, these the in nicely with the original hardware which has been thoroughly cleaned and rejuvenated.
This is a versatile piece with any number of possible uses….entryway statement piece, bedroom, bathroom, office….
