How To Age Dark Wood In Minutes and Get a Beachy Driftwood Look

I recently stained the top of one of my favorite tables.  As much as I loved the look of the dark stained top on top of the beautiful white base, it just wasn’t working for us.  I didn’t want to paint it again, and definitely didn’t want to put any shiny polyurethane on it.  I really didn’t want it to look shiny.  Well, thanks to my new favorite new wax on the planet, my worries are over!!!  I figured out how to age dark wood in minutes, and could not be happier!

And one more before shot.  Not that it wasn’t lovely, but it if someone sat a cup on it for even a second, you could see a mark.  Also, with kids, there always seemed to be spots all over it no matter how many times I cleaned it.

Give Dark Wood a Beachy Driftwood Look

 Bring on the Lime Wax!  I took a white cloth and applied the wax in long strokes until it completely covered the table.  After just a few minutes, I took a clean cloth and buffed it out a bit.

The result is a slightly aged beachy effect that fits in much better with my decor and protects the top of the table!

 I love the way it turned out and have a few other pieces that will be getting a similar makeover!  I can’t wait to share them with you!
