Small pieces can p.C. A punch! Follow alongside as this cloth wardrobe is going from forgotten to splendid with the assist of a amusing coloration, gold accented hardware and shading with wax.
What a find proper? Yes it is old, but there was a lot potential in this petite piece we couldn’t skip it up. Small ones like this may be the ideal opportunity to use a amusing shade to enliven a area. We commenced off by using casting off all the hardware and cleansing the lots used floor with Krud Kutter and rinsing with water.
After letting dry, we took the opportunity to fill in a few deep gouges and scratches with wood filler. A favored preference is Quikwood because it dries in an hour and sands without a doubt smooth. After sanding the filler clean with a 220 grit sanding pad the relaxation of the piece changed into scuff sanded as well and dirt removed with a tack cloth. Many times if you paint immediately over timber filler the shade will vary in the ones spots. We desired to keep away from that as plenty as viable so a skinny layer of shellac became sprayed to even out the base of the piece for a constant place to begin. A mild hand sanding using 400 become used and once more dust was eliminated with a tack fabric.
Ok now right here comes the fun part, the painting! A beautiful green referred to as Emerald through General Finishes changed into used, 3 coats in total sanding with 400 grit paper after every coat has dried. After the final sand, High Performance Top Coat in Satin changed into implemented the usage of a foam brush, sanding with four hundred grit among each coat. A total of 3 coats had been carried out.
Once completely dry, a skinny layer of Annie Sloan dark wax turned into implemented to the rims and recesses of the piece with a small brush to feature dimension and shading. The excess become then wiped back with a shop towel and left to dry.
Next it become time to renew the ones splendid drop pulls!
These original drop pulls had seen better days and with the help of Barkeepers Friend (BKF) and rub n buff I knew they would be beautiful again.
See the difference scrubbing with some BKF and a wire brush can do?
After they have been clean, rub n buff in gold became used at the black a part of the drop pull to give it a cohesive appearance. We carried out it the use of a small artist brush after which a store towel to buff. We then use a foam brush to apply and guard the brand new end with High Performance in Satin another time. So an awful lot higher right?
Here is the very last appearance with new up to date door hardware too. Thank you for following along!
