How to Create a Wood Look Using Paint
– Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Coco – Liming Wax – Annie Sloan Clear Wax – Annie Sloan Dark Wax – 2 Stiff Bristle Brushes – Sanding Sponge – Lint-free Rags
if you don't like the original color and don't want it to show, paint a base coat and seal with clear wax.
PAINT & SAND
After the second coat of Coco, lightly sand the piece in the direction of the wood grain.
APPLY LIMING WAX
Lightly brush the surface of your piece IN THE SAME DIRECTION as your wood grain/sanding. You are NOT trying to cover the piece, but just create some lines throughout.
Once covered in Clear Wax and BEFORE the wax dries, apply Dark Wax. Using a different stiff brush, lightly dip the brush into the Dark Wax and then blot off excess on a dry rag.
