I thought I’d pass along a blog I recently found and added to my reader. Martha Leone paints furniture of all styles, giving careful attention to detail, and she’s giving me all kinds of inspiration for a few pieces I currently have sitting in my garage. The trick to successfully transforming furniture is more than just technique (which I’m still working on acquiring). I think it’s just as important to be able to study a particular piece and know what parts and how it should be painted. It’s a battle between knowing when to show restraint and just going for it. Martha is good at that.
On her blog, she often shares her process and the products used for achieving the look, like with this buffet before and after:
