Step 1: Clean With Clean Slate


Step 2: Base Coat

Apply two thin coats of Nottaway One Step Paint to the chest and two thin coats of Parisian Gray One Step Paint to the top of the feet.

Mix Glazed Over, Kensington Black Gel Stain, and Water (2:1:1). Apply with a sponge to entire piece and wipe off with clean lint-free cloth. The carvings will really stand out on a piece like this!


Step 4: Seal

Apply Matte Sealer to the entire piece.

Step 5: Add on beautiful hardware and ENJOY THE BRAGGING RIGHTS!
