Barbara Boyles’s geometrical painted chest is a piece that would command attention in any room that it is put in.
She started by painting the entire chest black. Frog tape was applied to create the stripes on the top and front face of the chest. Gold leaf was applied in sheets to give the chest a contrast between the rich glow of the leaf and the black paint.
Barbara decided to add interest to the top by cutting a picture frame down, and securing it to the top of the chest to add extra interest.
Barbara is located in Mayflower, Arkansas, and enjoys creating uniquely painted pieces for own her home and for resale.
