Parisian Chic, Buffet/Dresser/Sideboard Reveal

20140308-105348.jpg
Wax went on early this morning and my Parisian Princess is ready for a new home. After lovingly distressing this piece, I mixed a custom combination of glaze using a dark Expresso color. I applied it with a cheap chip brush and then played with the depth of it, wiping it off with paper towels, unscented baby wipes and a good ole’ damp rag.

The hardware was the original shade of white, so I applied a touch of my ‘Pot of Cream’ white and then smooshed (my new word for the day) on some of the glaze I had mixed using a steel wool pad. That gave them the antiquated, worn look I was going for.

This is a go/use anywhere type of piece. She’s all glam with a hint junk chic. What do you think?
