Michelangelo Chest- Hand Painted

Using gold leaf and acrylics along with some colored conte pencils I transformed this discarded chest into a celebration of Michelangelo. Every area, including the drawers inside are painted or drawn on. There are hidden drawings inside the outer sides of the drawers. I lined the drawers with material. I also decoupaged a mirror to sit on the top of it. I was working in a frame shop at the time so got to make the mirror from scratch. Fun times!
