THE BENEFITS OF DARK WAX - tuscan blue server

The goal for this cabinet
was to play with the paint 
finish and create something
super old looking.

One of the main ingredients that helped create the
finish on this server is Annie Sloan's Dark Wax.

The close up shots of this finish are so you can 
get the true image of how rustic it is.

It is always messy working with dark wax so I like to use 
rubber gloves. The paint is brushed in every direct creating
 brush marks and ridges to catch the dark wax.
