We found this amazingly rare wooden wine rack holding a mighty 56 bottles. Beautiful in wood but aged. I struggled with the wood stain verses Pearl Effects, but naturally the stunning Pearl Effects won. Painted directly onto the wood in alternate Tawny and Copper and hand distressed.

I've been having a blast using General Finishes new Pearl Effects! I painted a base coat of Millstone(Milk Paint), distressed it down some, then brushed on Champagne Pearl Effects. The result is a beautiful shimmer on my taupe chair(s). I changed it up and did a jade velveteen seat and a decorative embroidered trellis on the back. Of course my signature lace trim to finish it off. There are a pair of these and they are stunning!- Restored By Rachel
