This gorgeous cabinet was refurbished by Cait from Little City Farmhouse with Vanilla Frosting, Natural Wax, and Willow antiquing dust. Isn’t it pretty?!

Hello!

I am so excited to share this cabinet with you! This is the first time I have used the Antiquing Dust, and it definitely won’t be my last! If you are looking for a new way to antique furniture, to add depth and dimension, or an alternative to antiquing wax, you’ll definitely want to give this product a try.

I started by painting this cabinet with three coats of Vanilla Frosting. Light colours tend to need extra coats for even coverage, and I prefer to paint in several light coats. You’ll have better success with adhesion and curing with lighter coats. I painted the inside with two coats of Coastal Fog.

When it was fully dry, I distressed it with sandpaper. Make sure you clean the dust from sanding off well before moving on to the next step.

Working in sections, I applied clear wax with a chip brush. I then went back over it with the antiquing dust in Willow using a different brush. I applied it in the groves and corners first and then moved into the middle. I gave different sections different amounts of dust – you want this to look really authentic! I went back over the sections really lightly with a clean rag to work it around until I was happy with the 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.
