I’m looking at the beautiful chest you finished.nI love the look… my question is about the darker color I see on the drawers. Is it wax? If so, what kind of was did you use? I’ve learned that waxes also have a ‘color’ spectrum (dark/light).nGreat job and GREAT blog.
The dark accents that you see on this piece were done using what we call the “dry brush method”. You show you how to do it on this post. We dry brushed it with a dark charcoal gray (almost black). So let us take a look at top 23 good view distressed bedroom furniture below.
Hope this helps. Happy painting!
Hello! Thanks for the postings and the tutorials, this is exactly what we are looking for for some older furniture that we are going to be refinishing. The colors you used for the dresser are perfect for our space. I was wondering if you could tell me that the base color(s) are that you used. The color of the existing furniture is a medium pine color. We are wanting to get very close to the look on this dresser! Any help would be much appreciated! Dustin

Those are the more apparent dark colors. The more subtle dark patina (which is merely an effect to age the paint) was done using our homemade dark wax. You can get our free dark wax recipe by signing up using the form in the sidebar at the top right of this page.
