"This piece has been in my entry foyer for years but it has gotten dinged up and chipped and I was tired of the dark color so I decided it was time for a change!

I also blended a little Bone White to add subtle highlights and some Dark Chocolate Milk Paint for the shaded areas. The top was done in a base of Empire Gray and a few washes of the...

This was the difficult part because the caulk application...
