French Elegance Drawers - SOLD
These drawers have been sold.
These drawers have been given a complete makeover in our French Elegance technique using Harewood Chalk Paint and Dark Wax.
This is a wonderful technique to use to create depth and layers of colours and is one that we teach in one of our Masterclasses.
Painted all over in Harewood with our Staalmeester pro-hybrid brush. We wanted a bit of texture so painted in all directions and we didn't water down the first coat. For the second coat we added about 5% water to achieve full coverage.
Once we had full coverage, we applied a layer of Dark Wax with our natural bristle brush, making sure to wipe off the excess with our rags.
We then made a coloured wax with our Harewood Chalk Paint and Clear Wax, using approximately a 1:1 paint to wax ratio. We brushed this on with our natural bristle brush and again wiped off any excess.
Note that we also painted over the original handles. This is a great way to update handles that have discoloured.
