I'm still trying to achieve that worn look. I read somewhere that using metallic paste (went looking for it, didn't find it, still don't know what it is) gives the effect of age and depth. It also said that shoe polish can be used as an alternative. So, I found shoe polish! And I must not know how to use it because it was not pretty after applying it. To use it, I ended up dabbing off most of it on a paper towel and applying it with a stiff paintbrush. That's what you see on the round table. I'm not sure if I like it much. It doesn't look as 'dirty' or worn as I've seen around.
I made the base with wood beads and a part of earring, which I also tried to give a little rust to.
I don't see using table two in what seems like is going to be my forever unfinished dollhouse. I whitewashed this one and still want to add some sort of writing/phrase along the round edge. Maybe in the future I'll be able to buy a smaller cottage type house and try my hand at beach cottage shabby.
I see I need to touch up those white spots. =)
I'll seal them when I'm sure of the final look.
Hope everyone is having a great day!!!
