Yep, she's big

and she's chunky

and even her curves have curves

(this is a Madagascar 2 reference of course)

This chest is by far the most distressed piece I've ever done.

After spraying everything in sight with my HLVP paint gun, I thought it might be fun to hand paint again (just to make sure I remembered how)

A little ASCP, clear wax, distressing, dark wax and buffing.

Chunky!  (and someone else must've loved her chippy, chunkiness, too - she was the first thing to sell in the July sale at Hello, Sailor! Yay!)

  1. Love her. And her name was Geeeee.....LLLLLL....OOOOO....Rrrrrrr....Eyeeeee.... Aaaaa.....GLORIA....Glooooooriaaaa....


  2. Oh she's a beauty...I LOVE her chunkiness! No surprise she sold so fast. I would have been tempted to keep her for myself :)

  3. Gorgeous piece, Lori! Talk about substantial ~ this one has really got it going on with those curves and that chunkiness! : )

  4. They just don't make pieces like that anymore, which is a shame. Great job on the finish, I can see why it sold quickly!

  5. Gorgeous! And she is a chunky gal, which makes her all the more appealing!

  6. I LOVE this piece!! Great job! Following along now : )

  7. the finish on this looks SO good, lori! and so glad to see a few links from you!
