Try this red technique on your next piece


If you love red furniture, you might want to try this super technique. In a nutshell, here's what I did: I painted the piece in maroon homemade chalk paint, then applied two coats of red paint/glaze, then rubbed on/off Minwax Red Mahogany stain, then finished it with Minwax Wipe-on Poly for protection. You can visit my blog to get more detailed instructions along with a couple of product recommendations.
