Faux real, that's not stained!?

By Dianne Horn, Owner/Operator at Sweet Tea Furniture in Lugoff, SC.

The warmth of wood will never go out of style!  Not everyone can afford to pay for traditional refinishing which is exactly why we went with a faux wood finish to update this dresser.  The original finish had turned orange over the decades so we updated it with a color wash in Well-Bred Brown and mimicked the look of wood grain with antique glazing.  This update has fooled many!!  We received countless messages requesting that we share the stain color we used!  There's no stain here!
