 Cerused beauty! After this rustic dresser was cleaned and stripped I applied dye stain then sealed with wax free shellac. Lime wax was applied and wiped back to highlight the natural patterns of the gorgeous tiger oak. The body was painted in a custom gray which complements the grain beautifully, then sealed with a flat topcoat.
