My tutorial for how to do a faux aged steel paint finish on an Ikea PS cabinet was the most-viewed post for last year. It was a spur of the moment decision to paint it, but I'm glad that I did it. Just a little bit of sanding, paint, and Annie Sloan's Dark Wax went a long way to give character to a plain piece of furniture for our boys' room.

    Very cool look! That's a fabulous piece!

    Thank you, Donna! I'm surprised that it has held up to the use and abuse of our two younger boys over the past 4 months, but I guess that a scratch or dent here or there would just give it more character. :)
