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!
All thanks to Maison Blanche’s new Lime Wax in Chalk White!
Here is the table before…
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.
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!
Here are two more makeovers using Maison Blanche’s new Lime Wax from my friends Shannon and Roshelle…
