USING DARK WAX TO AGE A FINISH - royal crest cabinet



TAKING THE ORDINARY AND MAKING IT EXTRAORDINARY.
I would really like to do this again some day on another piece.






It was a simple cabinet, originally a lumber store pine kit
 project. It looked like it did not get put together well. It looked so bad that the thrift store labeled it
*HOME MADE*


I completely re-built it, using new screws, new pulls, new
 hinges, and some "L" brackets. She ended up getting a 
rustic paint finish and embellished across the front with a
 wonderful transfer.


Half way through I got a vision of a magical lion &
 unicorn crest spread across the face of the doors.  


 The top is painted with ASCP Graphite and the body was
 painted ASCP Old White. It turned out wonderful but hard
to photograph. I used the dark wax all over the 
body to add age and depth to the finish.
