I am aware this pieces is a bit out there and not for everyone. Over the past few months I have been trying not to disregard an idea because it may not be something others will like or it won’t sell. If I have an idea, I do my best to try it out, even if it may be a miss. 3 months ago I painted this piece white and added the tribal design to the drawers. I used a Sharpie paint pen I ordered from Amazon. I bought the bold one, which was good for some parts of the design, but it was hard for the parts that I didn’t want as thick. I just made up the design from tribal prints I had seen and sketched out an idea beforehand. I started with the bold black row of plus sign things (don’t know what to call those), and just went from there. I did drawer it out with a pencil and then go over with the paint pen. The whole thing ended up getting glazed withsome grey glaze I mixed up due to the white paint becoming a bit discolored, and that did the trick.
I love the tribal design on the drawers, but I’m not entirely convinced this was the right piece to do it on and that the overall look it a home run… but I am glad I gave it a try!
