I went and bought a few things when my restore had 50 % off the other day. I scored the cart for 15 bucks, I had been eyeing it for a week or two but wasn't convinced it was the right piece for that area. I was soooo wrong.
look at the old wheels and how amazing the duck blue looks with the wood coming thru.
I love that I got to pull out some of my china my in-laws bought me 12 years ago and actually display it. The silver looks so pretty next to the blue. This is my new favorite piece, for today at least.
|some pics to show what the color looked like before the wax and all the distressing.|
|I also did a little white wash using old white and water. I took a chip brush and very lightly did a few strokes here and there.|
|you can see how alive the wood becomes after the wax....|
