My entry for Septembers Fab Flipping Furniture Contest - Geometric Design
When it comes to geometric design in furniture Paul Evans comes to mind, I have been dying to create an homage to the famous modernistic furniture designer for a while now, and this months theme fit the bill perfectly!
The Before Shot
Here are some before shots of a piece I picked up on craigslist, this little vintage Drexel number was about as close to Mid Century Modern design I could get at an affordable price.
Sponsored by General Finishes
The brass hardware was the inspiration for the geometric design incorporated on the piece. And this months sponsor was General Finishes, so of course I used their products to create this true black finish.

Here is an example of the geometric design inspired by the original brass hardware.
