Antique White…

I wanted to show you a piece of furniture
that I finished this week…
I used white paint & gave it an antique
look with wood stain…


Before….

After…


Staining Method:

-Paint the dresser the base color {in this case it was white}
- Allow paint {I used semi-gloss} to dry completely
-Brush on the stain with a regular paint brush
-Wipe stain off with a damp cloth or paper towel 
-After wiping with a damp cloth wipe again with a dry cloth
-Continue wiping until you get your desired look
-Allow to dry & then you can seal the piece


I also changed the hardware out for
oil rubbed bronze to accent the antique look.


I love all the storage in this dresser & 
the placement of the drawers.. it’s very unique.


The detail in the dresser made the staining technique
turn out great because the stain says in all of the
details crevices…


I love the way this dresser turned out & it’s a great
alternative to your average white dresser.


I hope you are having a great week…
My week has been full of custom furniture orders
that I can’t wait to show you.
Have you tried this staining technique yet?
How did you do it?
I would love to hear your way. 
Talk to you all soon…
