Do you want to see what our new beeswax bar can do? Cait from Little City Farmhouse used it on this stunning dresser in Bliss and Vanilla Frosting to give it a beautiful distressed look without all the hard work of sanding!

Hello! I’m Cait from Little City Farmhouse, and I am back to share with you a really fun project using Country Chic’s brand new Beeswax Bar.

I knew the exact look I had in mind for this dresser. If you have never used a beeswax bar for a resist finish, it’s easy! I love the really worn finish it gives a piece!

I started with a simple vintage dresser. It had no previous finish, and I didn’t prep it at all.

I was after a very worn finish, so I used the beeswax bar between every coat. I rubbed it on (just like using an eraser!) in strategic places before I put a coat on so I would have some exposed wood without having to do a lot of sanding!

I then applied a coat of Country Chic’s new all-in-one paint in Bliss. When it was dry, I very liberally rubbed the beeswax bar all over the dresser. I wanted a lot of the colour to show through! Immediately after applying, I coated the dresser in two coats of Vanilla Frosting (also the new all-in-one paint).

After it was dry, I sanded the whole piece really well. Because the paint won’t adhere to the beeswax, it immediately comes off and you have the most unique authentic finish!

The new All-In-One paint also lends itself really well to a natural distressed finish. Because the paint is so durable, I didn’t apply a top coat. The matte finish of the paint is gorgeous and so smooth! The Beeswax Bar is a fantastic little tool if you love this look!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
