Sometimes just a smidge of Gold Leaf Rub n' Buff can make a world of difference! I had this teak mid century modern piece that I found at the same time as the buffet. I don't think they are part of a set, even though I did get them from the same person. I'm just thinking that because one is curvy and one is not, and the pulls, but who knows... or cares, right? So anyway, here was the teak chest of drawers before,
and..... here it is now!
And check out one of my favorite pictures, my moo-cow. It's a pencil drawing by a woman named Marjorie A. Seay. A local woman who had passed away. : ( I just happened to stumble across their sale and was amazed when I saw tons and tons of pictures that she did. I bought a bunch of them and love them all. I spoke to the woman that was holding the sale, I think it was her daughter, and she said that they used to go garage sale-ing to find picture frames for some of her pictures. I thought... hmmmm a woman after my own heart! Followed by the thought, wow she scored, the day she found this frame, cuz it's a nice one! I felt like a lucky girl that day!
And... one more picture of the teak chest... just cuz! Oh, tip, someone asked me how I get my lines so straight. I do it the easy way and let the tape do the work. See where the gold stripes are? I put my tape there first, using the edge of the drawers as my guide, then I put another piece of tape under the first piece of tape using the edge of the tape as my guide, then I pulled off the first piece of tape and applied the Rub n' Buff. I used the wider painter's tape for the chest of drawers.
and a thinner painter's tape for the buffet.
I've heard that a lot of stores don't carry all of the Rub n' Buff colors.
I actually buy my Rub n' Buff online from here:
It comes out to be a little less than $4 a tube with shipping included. I've heard that Rub n' Buff costs about $4 at the stores, so it comes out to be about the same but you don't have to drive around looking for a place that has all the colors. Save that gas, people!
next up... Rub n' Buff on vinyl. Yep! VINYL
