I used an angled foam brush to finish painting the tops of the chairs white, being careful not to press too hard and get white in the design.
I wanted to add a bit of aging to the chairs for a vintage look. The fun part about this process is you can make it look as rustic as you like. I really liked how the chairs turned out so I ultimately decided to only add a little bit of aging for the time being, but will likely add more when I want to change it up! It’s always easier to add more than it is to take away.
For the aging I took a cloth and dipped it in the Black Licorice paint. I wiped away any excess on the cloth and lightly brushed it into some of the edges and grooves of the chair. It adds a bit of a shadowing effect.
*Note: If you prefer a more rustic/antique look – scuff up the chairs with sandpaper marks along the edges, corners and grooves.
