Art on Furniture
Inspiration came from an image I saw in the web. After that it was not difficult to carry the idea to a piece of furniture.
This is probably the best project I worked on this year. I started with this antique chest and a pair of nightstands
I was thinking for some time how to work on them, until I saw this image on the web
I fell in love with the flowers, especially with their size, and decided to take the idea an put it on the pieces I had. After researching on the picture, I found it belonged to a Dutch painter, Jan Davidsz de Heem. It is amazing how modern it looks, although it was painted in the XVII century!
I went to a print house to have de picture printed the size I needed.
I painted the whole piece navy blue
and started cutting the flowers.
Glued them to the front using decoupage technique.
Did the same on the nightstands doors with a second print of the picture, but using only pieces of the image
Then used gold wax for the borders and added the original bronze pulls.
Look at the complete set. I found it really impressive for a modern bedroom!
Before and after. A great great change!
