Dark Wax

image

Dark wax can be quite tricky to apply.  One thing I’ve learned, the hard way, is that “less is more”!  If you remember that motto, you will be fine.  I had this old table in my upstairs hallway and hated it, so I thought I would try a little restyle…

Before

I applied two coats of ASCP Graphite.

Then distressed with my sanding block.

After applying Clear Wax, I added a little Dark Wax, then buffed.

After waxing I went over the table with a French Linen wash.

Then Dark Wax again…ONLY in the “distressed” areas and the corners.

After

image

I think it now suits my home.

That was the entire process. If you have any questions feel free to ask! Have a fabulous day!
