Aged Tulip Crate
Spring is just around the corner so when I found this wooden tulip bulb crate I knew I could give it a fun update from the boring raw wood look.
It was solidly made crate for Home Hardware. It just needed a good scrubbing and ready for its makeover.
The first coat was to darken the wood. I used a Dixie Belle chip brush and my Fine Mist Spray Bottle to apply Dixie Belle Voodoo Gel Stain in tobacco road. Misting the wood allows the pores to open and allow the stain to absorb into the wood.
All sides inside and out were stained and left to dry.
It darkens once dry.
Using a clean Dixie Belle chip brush, I applied white magic Dixie Belle Voodoo Gel Stain in a dry brush technique to give an aged bard board finish. You can apply as much as you want.
Once dry all sides were sanded followed by 2 coats of Dixie Belle satin clear coat. I was applying it to this sweet French Provincial dresser I was working on at the time so was super easy to just add 2 coats at the same time.
Using my dedicated dark wax Dixie Belle premium chip brush I brushed brown Dixie Belle's best dang wax on all the edges again inside and out to further age the piece.
I love this look allot, how about you?
