Faux inlay bone DIY

Remember this faux inlaid bone console table that Kristen hand painted?

I love how it turned out and I REALLY wanted to try my hand at it. (I blame the pregnancy hormones)

I have a pair of round mirrors that I thought would be perfect for this DIY, here was my inspiration picture:

And here is my version.

I may end up going over the white parts with a darker glaze just so it's not so stark but I'm going to give it a few days and then decide.

Is it perfect? No way.

Can you tell it's hand painted and not inlaid bone? Sure.

Am I happy with how it turned out? Yes!

I couldn't ever afford a real piece so this substitute is fine by me. I'll post pictures of the pair of them together soon, we've been working on rearranging the whole living room and everythings a mess right now.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
