Last week I spent three wonderful fall days wandering the High Point Market. It’s where buyers and interior designers go twice yearly to buy for their stores and clients. You can imagine the eye candy is over the top, and I get ideas faster than I can remember them. I did leave with the plan to create a furniture finish using Wood Icing® Textura Paste that is lightly textured, washed and soft gold and grey.

Yes, like pretty fabric, with a gorgeous glass pull that is similar to the pattern.

What do you think? This is easy, fast and can be created in any colors that work well with soft gold, because I actually used the Wood Icing™ Textura Paste color as part of the finish.

 PAINT THE CABINET & ADD TEXTURA PASTE

I used a cabinet door I found at Habitat for Humanity for $1. Lacey Jane the kitty helper insisted upon assisting. I lightly sanded the door and wiped it off because it was shiny. Then I brushed on one coat of Paris Grey and let it dry.

I cut my stencil edges off, in order for it to fit inside the panel more easily. I put it in various positions that I liked, and simply used my finger to push a bit of Textura Paste through the stencil. It dries quickly.

WASH ON PURE WHITE, WIPE SOME OFF & WAX

Brush on a thin layer of Pure White, in random strokes so it’s not too perfect. Let dry. Use a wet rag to pull of areas of the pattern until you like the look. Let dry.

Use cheesecloth to wipe on one layer of Clear Soft Wax. Wait a few minutes and wipe off all excess. Buff to a soft sheen. If this is a piece of furniture, wait a day and add another coat of Clear Wax.

Pretty isn’t it!
