I love getting to play and demonstrate all the beautiful products in the Fusion Mineral Paint line.

Beautiful Drawers

I have posted about this beautiful arabesque chest of drawers, which you can read about HERE. But in my latest video (down further in this post), I’ll show you how these drawers started out, and how I achieved this raised stencil with the embossing paste.
