How to Create a Grunge Piece

This piece is best defined as Grand to Grunge! The perfect combination of metals makes up the Grand and the drippings create the Grunge.

How To:

I painted this piece from top to bottom in this order of colors: Stormy Seas, Savannah Mist, and Buttercream.

Next, I added a combination of gold, silver, and copper leaf to artistically adorn the front and sides of the piece.

I also used metal accents to enhance the drawer fronts. The silver accent was then blended into the drawer fronts for added dimension.

I added a faux alligator pattern to the the top of the piece. In the end, copper hardware is the perfect jewelry for this piece.

Check out my video on gold and silver leafing.

This versatile piece can either be grand or grunge. It would be a wonderful buffet, bar or media console. I’m in love with the finished product!
