Gesso Washed Corbel

I finally did it! Gesso washed that black corbel. I have been wanting to try this for a very long time. I love the way it turned out!
BEFORE


AFTER



It really was easy! The gesso went on just like paint. I saw this technique at Rosemary's Villabarnes blog. What a terrific idea! I will for sure be using this again on something! It makes an "instant" aged look.


You can find beauty in anything, somewhere! Even these old bulbs are eye catching!


Love, love these vintage grape ornaments!

You can see so much of the beautiful detailing after you painted it white! Nicely done!
