This chest of drawers was created as a part of Annie Sloan's Instagram Colour Challenge. Here's a few words of how this piece came together.
I was inspired by the pink amethyst and quartz crystal that you can see standing on the chest. It grew from a green and yellow, almost goldlike motherstone, forming beautiful waves of pink, mauve, and even blueish toned crystal, to then transform into a shiny clear quartz. I tried to transfer these colours and patterns onto the chest, using oxford navy as the base and antoinette, pure, and navy mixed in all different combinations and rations to create the crystal-like top. I used an ombre of Antibes Green and Navy on the decorative mouldings and paired it with green geode handles. To apply gold leaf in a more organic shape I used a bird feather dipped in size. Then, finished the entire piece in AS gloss lacquer.
