This is sort of a project I took on, some old furniture I had needed serious replacement. It was water damaged, ugly and about 30 years old.

I have always hated this furniture, and because my family doesnt want it gone... Im stuck with it. So I made a deal with my family. I wanted it redone!
I did start it zelda style. Actually because Im expecting a f4f statue of wolf link and midna. Ive been a zelda fan for 19 years, so this is a dream come true (lol)

This dresser took 3 days to sand due to the damage and the type of wood. Its not smooth, its rough, and I standed it down to the point where you cant feel a bump.

I then started the design, spending 5 full days creating the twilight mirror by exact measurements.

This was completed today, (burning a finger in the process.)

As it stands now... Its been stained.

My family is impressed, and has given me permission to do another piece of furniture in the style. Please note, its far from done! The twilight symbol will be practically glowing when is done.

heres the plan, making use of metalic paints, no photoshop effect, in the sun, the triforce looks like its glowing Smilie

I spent time experimenting with 4 colors. In the end I tossed 2 to the side and kept a dark and light gold.

I wanted to put no solid gold lines, but it worked out nicer. Hope you all like this update Smilie

Daaamn, that looks really impressive even in its unfinished state. Smilie I have some really old furniture I'd like refurbish in a cool way as well but I'm nowhere near as skilled as you. Your family should actually be requesting you to do more pieces of furniture in this style instead of just giving you the permission! Smilie It looks that great.

Make sure to also show us a picture of when it's completely done! I'm looking forward to seeing it. Smilie

Very impressive indeed Smilie. You surely could make a business out of this.

I was going to seriously make fun of and troll you until I saw it. Impressive carving!

You've got some great art skills, all your art work that you've shown on this site is amazing. This piece is no exception.

God, can you come round to mine and decorate my furniture too? Gorgeous. I'd love to have a wooden replica of just the mirror hanging on my wall. Would you ever think about doing something like that to sell to people?
