This is a large display shelf I was asked to paint for one of my favorite clients. Summer owns a women’s clothing store, Fleur De Lis, in downtown Clarksville. The shelf needed a little TLC before heading to the front of the shop.
Going from white to licorice.
The shelf had been painted several times and I think the top and bottom sections were not built at the same time or of the same materials. It was very rough, rippled and knotty.
Compare the picture above with this picture. You have to admit the distressing take it to another level. Adds dimension and character.
You know, it really doesn’t matter if the piece is rough or smooth as a baby’s b…t. Once it’s painted and distressed, it’s awesome looking!!!
Another close-up of the distressing. And I couldn’t resist putting my Magnetic Personality craft on the shelf!!
