You can see the original finish, I'm using Annie Sloan's "Antibes" in a thin wash over the top of the original finish. No prep except to dust it off!
Yes I had a moment! But I knew I could change it up if this turned out bad :)
On goes the "Dark" wax (Annie Sloan) with my wax brush barely moist with paint thinner, I call this a wax wash. It is so easy to take this down with a soft cloth and repeat until you get the look that speaks to you!
I rubbed and buffed the wax wash and it was finished. I'm tickled with the outcome! The colours and textures bring to mind "Art Nouveau".
