A piece from the TR Antique Collection imported from the UK, it was once painted in a flat Charcoal sitting on the TR Gallery floor. Purchased and commissioned to have the colour changed to fit into a "beachy-luxe" style home where the room it's going into will hold pale blue tones with gold and brass decor. The brief was to have something a little rustic, a little beachy, a rustic worn white with subtle worn metallic details and this is the result. A stunning fireplace surround hand painted and detailed ready to take its place in an interior space.  

What we did: 
Hand Painted in Crystal with texture using a Staalmeester brush. Detailed with coloured waxes (in order) low strength Victorian Black Wax followed by Harewood  then sanded and steel wooled back followed by a Crystal Chalk Paint wash (diluted with water 50/50 and sealed with clear wax  with final detailing of  vintro metallics on the bevels and details then steel wooled back.
