Adding Just a Hint of Sparkle {guest post}

Heidi from Lily Field Furniture used Pocket Watch metallic cream to make the hardware on this cabinet really pop against a background of Liquorice. Isn’t it beautiful?!

Good Morning! I want to show you a super simple makeover today using Country Chic Liquorice Paint, Beeswax bar and Pocket Watch Metallic Cream.

This buffet was in great shape structurally but my client wanted it to be updated to match her new dining room.

We chose to keep it simple and paint with Liquorice for the perfect black. Before painting I made sure I cleaned the piece well and then gave it a very light sanding with 220 grit sandpaper. I then used my beeswax bar and went over the details that I wanted to distress easily after painting. If you haven’t used this Country Chic product I highly recommend you do! I’m a huge fan of anything that makes my job easier!

Once I had the beeswax bar where I wanted it I went ahead and painted one coat of Liquorice. After the paint was completely dry I lightly distressed the areas I wanted to show natural wear and then sealed with a top coat.

One of the bottom hardware pieces was broken so I found 2 similar handles in my stash The only problem though was that all of the pieces were different golds. In order to get a uniform look I went ahead and primed all of the hardware and then hand painted each piece with the Pocket Watch Metallic Cream. I love the way it stands out against the black!
