Apothecary Media Console

Submitted by Laura Kemp on Mon, 11/23/2015 - 15:52

This project was made from Ana White's apothecary media console plan. The finish is Minwax Special Walnut on the drawers and top. On the sides is a finish technique I found on thehouseofsmiths.com - Faux Barn Wood Painting Tutorial.

Finish Used
I used an Olympic Brand Weathered Barnwood stain first. Then I used a shade of light grey, dark grey, and black paints (all Valspar brand) that I bought at Lowe's. I used one color at a time - and used a dry brush technique to put each color on. Then I did a quick sanding and after I wiped it down, another coat of the weathered barnwood Olympic stain. One more sanding and it was done!
