The Magic Brush

I can't remember how Jennifer of The Magic Brush found my blog but she has commented a couple of times which led me to her blog and I was very inspired by her talent. She is a professional faux finish painter in Missouri and has even been on Extreme Makeover Home Edition 3 times! I had seen this piece awhile back on her blog and loved it.

So recently I thought I would try the look on a bombay chest I had in my house. I just rubbed turquoise onto the drawers and legs and left the top the natural wood.

Here are some more examples of her work. For more you can go to
