Holy moly we have been busy lately!! The back of our store is a disaster and our workshop is just about impossible to walk through. As a result I have been completely ignoring this blog. Thought I better post at least a little something, so here is a picture of one piece that I recently completed.
This night stand was painted with Swiss Coffee and then accented with a bright blue. To tone down the color, and add an aged affect, I used Minwax in Dark Walnut to stain the piece. The stain was applied with a brush and then immediately buffed off with a clean cloth.
