It just turned out WAY brighter then I had intended:
Yowza Yellow Dresser:
Well today, in an attempt to rectify the screeming yellow,
I tried adding in a little wax.
So here is the stuff I picked up.
It’s called Fiddes and Son Supreme Wax Polish
and the color is Jacobean
It’s really thick and kinda looks like birdy doo
But that’s okay, because it’s going to rescue my dresser from a classic craft fail.
And it’s super simple to use:
All you have to do is rub the
birdy doo wax into the wood,
in all the areas you want a bit more shabby.
Which in my case is like the entire thing.
We are using gloves and doing this outside because,
the wax stinks…….not like birdy doo,
but like the kind of stuff that
will make you THINK you can FLY like a birdy.
And that is certainly not our intention this afternoon.
So here is a side by side shot of the drawers:
You can see the bottom two have been waxed.
The color is toned down just enough that it’s not giving me a headache anymore.
Looking much better,
tons more depth!
Here is the BEFORE and AFTER shot:
It’s hard to tell in the photo, but in person it makes a huge difference.
When you look closer you can see a whole new tone to the piece:
Before and After Close UP:
It’s just the color that I wanted!
I will be using birdy doo on EVERYTHING from now on!
