Lisa from Recreated Designs refurbished this beautifully detailed end table with our limited edition, Nocturnal and Antiquing Wax. Don’t you love this stunning finish?!

Country Chic Paint’s Fall/Winter line for 2016 came out not long ago and I have fallen completely in love with Nocturnal! This creamy grey/green colour is a modern classic that has become my favourite neutral. Nocturnal reminds me of a forest at night… the smoky greens and shadowy greys.

I found this vintage night stand last month and the cravings on the front were the perfect backdrop for this new colour. The carvings look like vines and they definitely needed something to highlight their beauty.

I began the makeover of this solid wood piece with two coats of the Nocturnal.

Once the paint was completely dry, I added a little depth and highlighting to the lovely vines. I used a layer of the Antiquing Wax on top of the Nocturnal to really bring out their beauty.

The rich brown of the Antiquing Wax paired perfectly with the colour of the paint.

To apply the Antiquing Wax, I used a small brush to make sure it got into all of the crevices and then wiped it back with a soft cloth.

I can’t believe what a difference the combination of the Nocturnal and dark Wax made to this battered old piece. I absolutely love this new colour and can’t wait to incorporate it further into my rustic decor.
