Upcycling a piece of furniture can bring a love for antiques to a whole new generation, take this piece for example.
This is a custom order that came in and belonged to my customers grandmother but it didn't necessarily fit in with their current style.
Ok, back to business-Are you confused with whether or not you need to Prime a piece? Well I have a short video below to help you with that answer!
After all of the proper prep was finished I used two layers of the color Letterpress Grey from the DIY Paint line. The next day I applied both clear wax and then a layer of dark wax also from the DIY Paint line. See links to diy products below
The magic of dark wax! Yes it's a bit of work but ohhh...those results!
Now for the FUN part! Using the home collection from IOD (Iron Orchid Designs) rollers I created a beautiful hand created designers touch by incorporating the Iron Gate roller Finish to the insides of the cabinet doors as well as the outer sides of drawers using the Gold Patina From the DIY Paint line. See instructional video above to see how easy this is to use!

Don't forget to finish some of those hidden areas for a professional touch!
