Shelly Martin Art Handpainted French Cabinet. This project involved hours upon hours of work but it sure turned out lovely. Aside from painting it many coats, distressing it, antiquing it and sealing it, on the inside I also stained some vintage wall paper, added it inside,gessoed a spot and added French graphics, hand painted roses, aged all of it using many antiquing methods. (I'm exhausted just explaining it all)! In the end it looked hundreds of years old and very Old French Bohemian.
