I had done a "make-over" on this maple bureau in 2009
I used sponges and stamped a flower design on this bureau,
thus creating a textured surface.
I also used a GLOSS varnish to finish this piece.
Normally you would not need to sand a surface to use
Because of the textured, gloss surface
I chose to give this piece a
light sanding with my electric sander
I first applied a coat
Americana Decor RUSTIC
when dry I applied a coat
When dry I wet sanded using a sanding block
to give my piece a primitive look
This also allows for the coat of RUSTIC that I first painted to show thru.
Deco Art offers several different finishing options
I chose to use the
Americana Decor Clear Creme Wax
on this piece
I used my waxing brush to apply the creme wax
I purchased new hardware to complete the look of this bureau
I then began the "makeover"
oval OAK mirror
to paint this mirror
When dry I wet sanded again for a primitive look
using a sanding block
I then applied
Americana DECOR Clear Creme Wax
to finish the mirror
I let the
Clear Creme Wax
then went over it with a coat of the
Americana DECOR Deep Brown Wax
to tone the BLUE down
I really love the result!
