Before you view the completed piece, you can view the build here:
After the white base coat dried I lightly sanded the whole piece. I then focused on areas that would normally receive the most wear, revealing the stain underneath. When doing a project like this, very the thickness of paint in areas and don't be afraid of brush strokes - the fun part of vintage style builds are the imperfections.
After sanding, I used a Faux Glaze mixed with a little stain to darken it. I then brushed this over the entire piece and lightly wiped off to darken and add age to the nooks and crannies.
I found these lovely knobs and pull handle on ebay - search around for the hardware that will set your piece apart.
All finished - now off to watch Mississippi State take it to Jackson State!
