Stained in Ombré

By Chelsea Evans, Furniture Artist at Apple Blossom Way in Salem, UT.

This ombré dresser was stained using a combination of Weather wood stains reclaimation stain and a mixture of vinegar & steel wool. 

All drawers & top were stained in reclaimation stain. Then, starting from the top down- we added layers of an apple cider vinegar & steel wool stain. By allowing the steel wool to sit for longer periods of time in the vinegar, then applying that layer to one row, waiting while it darkened, and applying to the next row. 


The body was painted in Annie Sloan pure white. Sealed with minwax satin polycrilic for lasting durability and shine.
