Antique Inspiration for using Lacquer

As I previously have said this week, the AHAH lacquer is one of my favorites in the product line. The smooth glossy finish and range of colors can really bring a piece of furniture to life. As inspiration, I have found a few antique pieces that may lead you to find your very own project to lacquer!

Glamorous White Lacquered Credenza
This antique lacquered piece was made in Mexico in the 1960s
This piece is on sale for $12,000
Now you could use the White Perfection Lacquer and Gold Leaf to get the look!
You would need to clean off your piece, use the Amy Howard At Home Lacquer Primer,
then spray 3 light coats of the White Perfection Lacquer
If you want the gold accents, you could use our Bole, Gilding Size, and Golf Leaf

1950s Stilnovo Table Lamp
This antique lamp comes from Italy dating to the 1950s
This piece is on sale for $2,100
Now you could use the Sunny Brook Farm Lacquer to simply spray a metal lamp
In order to get that true glossy look, you must spray a few light coats 

Deco Secretaire
This Chic Art Deco secretaire is lacquered in Hermes orange 
and was made in France dating back to the 1940s
This piece is on sale for $5,800
To achieve this beautiful finish, you can use the Kumquat Lacquer
I always do suggest using the Lacquer Primer before spraying your colored lacquer

All lacquer colors and instructions are available on 
or at one of our retailers!
