Rub ‘n Buff…….a great way to transform your decor.
Just a reminder…..these are scheduled posts and I am actually out of town for a few days. Click here for more info. If you are waiting for a reply from email, I will be back on June 26th.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I have this little brown box that had a cool little design carved into the top. I wanted to add it to one of my shelves but the color blended into the things around it.
So I got a tube of gold leaf Rub ‘n Buff…..to add a little pop.
So glad I did.
Rub ‘n Buff
is a very light wax-metallic finish that you can add to any surface to give it a whole new look. You can use it to antique something, use it as a stencil, or restore an old wood or metal piece that you have stashed away. Rub ‘n Buff is different from just spray painting because it gives a shiny and brilliant coat of color and is applied in a very thin layer. Rub ‘n Buff can be found here
Here is my little wooden box beforehand:
All I did what take small dots of this cream and rub it all over the box with my finger. A little goes a loooooong way.
Then I let it dry…….and then buffed it a bit with a soft cloth.
I love how the dark box shines through in some places and the dark behind the carving really allows the carving to pop. Worked great!
I have 4 more colors to try out. I think I’ll do a picture frame, or a candle stick, or hmmm…..what else can I get my hands on??
What a great way to antique an item or add some serious shine to something that spray paint simply can’t do.
