"Driftwood" Finish Dining Chairs


The finish on these dumpster rescued dining chairs almost looks like driftwood. I used a combination of ASCP Coco and Old White, then dark waxed them to achieve this finish. Then added a grain sack image from The Graphics Fairy onto canvas for the seat covers.
You'd never know these dining chairs were a dumpster rescue.

After applying the dark wax, I wiped it off with some clear wax to soften the look.
