I had these cute little chairs given to me.
I painted just one coat of Annie Sloan's Paris Grey.
I highlighted the rungs with AS Old White.
This is what they looked like before waxing.
I first put a coat of clear wax and then added the dark wax.
The chair on the left just has the clear wax.
I like it more distressed looking so I put dark wax on both.
This is what they looked like before I buffed them.
Here they are all buffed and ready to be sold.
What do you do with your brush after you wax?
I heard this simple tip from Miss Mustard Seed's Waxes 101 Video, soak your brush in some veggie oil.
So I have a cup that I keep the oil.
This is my brush after waxing the chairs.
I let it soak for a couple of minutes.
I then took my Dawn dish detergent and squirted some on the brush as I rinsed it of with warm water.
This is what my brush looks like now.
Before I got wax, I used this brush when applying wood stain.
This brush was so stiff from the stain.
After doing this little treatment to my brush, the bristles are so soft!
