Black and Gold is Totally Sexy

And it is always in fashion.

Black and Gold is a classic luxury combination.  The LBD with a gold necklace and earrings is always a winner. Like this iconic picture of Coco Chanel.


It will come as no surprise that Janet from The Empty Nest has just done a black and gold furniture piece with a totally sexy look.

She started with a simple Art Deco. cabinet. A perfect piece to use this combination on since black and gold are very Art Deco. Lovely with great form and style but maybe a little boring because of the color.

The next step was applying the appliques and painting the entire piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite. Then wax with clear wax.

Finally, gold leaf was applied to the Efex. To apply the gold leaf or foil just paint the efex with gold size and then when tacky layer the leaf on top. So easy and so sexy.

 It was so simple and easy and just like the LBD…. so sexy.
