PAINTING JACKIE'S BEDROOM FURNITURE BLACK WITH METALLIC GOLD TRIM

Jackie's daughter just moved away to college.
So, Jackie totally redecorated her daughter's bedroom.  She had hardwood floors installed.  Then, she asked if I would paint her brown stained furniture black and gold.  The furniture was really beautiful, but Jackie wanted it black and gold.
So, I primed, painted, trimmed with metallic gold and sealed everything with two coats of clear sealer.
Jackie is going to paint the walls.
She's looking for just the right new hardware to put on her newly painted furniture.
There is a mirror for the dresser and I painted it, too.
Last summer Jackie purchased this copper table for her breakfast room.  She chose this particular one because it had so much patina on it.  Since last summer, as Jackie washed the table the patina kept coming off.  She tried a saline solution and it did patina the copper again, but every time she cleaned it the patina would still come off.  So, she asked me to use some paint and paint the patina on and seal it so she could clean it.  There was still some of the original patina on the other side of the table and I just copied it with paint color and patterns.  
Also, she wanted it to look similar to her vent-a-hood that I painted for her last summer.
Here is a link to that post:
While I was painting her daughter's furniture, she asked if I would touch up a spot on her tuscan style kitchen cabinets that I painted for her.  She had new granite installed and they nicked a little spot.
It was easy to touch up.
This is a link to pictures of her kitchen:
This is the bedroom furniture "before".  See, it's really beautiful with the stained wood finish.
I always love working with Jackie. 
 She loves decorating her home and it really is an elegant show home.
