About This Post
These "rustic" filing cabinets were recreated from a finish in a photograph, emailed to me online, and a small drawer face the client removed from her brand new desk. The project took many layers to create such a worn, rustic finish. These pieces make me wan to curl up with a book and a blanket next to a fire!
Cleaned with a DNA prep, these pieces were sanded and primed with BIN. The base color coat is GF Linen, sprayed with an HVLP Titan Turbine Capspray 95. I needed a glaze darker than van dyke brown, so I used GF water based walnut stain as glaze. Glaze was hand applied using a spong and rags. HPTC sealed the color, and then AS dark and black waxes deepened the shading.
