Pickled

February 23, 2011

Meet my new friend… Briwax Liming Wax. I want to rub it on everything. Ha ha! I randomly purchased a tub at Guirys the other day because it said it created a white wash,pickled finish on wood. Oooooo. Sounds divine. ┬áSo I applied a coat to a pine coffee table and pine desk/dining table I have had in my garage and it rocks! I love the outcome and the pictures do not do it justice because it was sunny. If you have something you want to revive I suggest you give it a try.

I might put another coat on this but I'm liking it as is right now.

 

Here's the coffee table

And this is the status of my garage right now. Thank god it's been so warm out!

Here is a great tutorial from Apartment Therapy

*Note. It says to apply sparingly. I did at first but then really layered it on to get the effect I wanted.
