I primed this with Kilz gray primer and then did 7 layers of white wash...I think it was 7...I lost count. But white washing is fun, so I didn't mind. I then used Fiddes wax in stripped pine over the whole thing...working in small sections at a time. Several bloggers have told me that dark wax is more difficult to use and they don't like how it looks splotchy. I used to have that problem too, until Shayne told me a secret. After waxing the entire piece, use extra fine steel wool to blend the wax. It is seriously like magic!!
See how nicely the wax blends and makes the piece look aged?
And one more...without accessories
Enjoy your long weekend!!
