Furniture finish examples of completed upcycles. Samples.
Picture Collection of completed projects that I have upcycled. These are good references of paint finishes available.
Duck egg blue Annie Sloan chalk paint
Dark wax for aged look, especially noticable on bottom of cabinet.
The back of this cabinet had fabric material put in it.

Massive zebra bureau.

Duck egg blue Annie Sloan chalk paint, dark waxed cabinet
Turquiose Blue stand was made to look chippy and highly distressed for shabby chic look. This was done with a spray paint.
Wooden tool box, variety of paints to look old and well used.
Sanded, repaired, and restained and clear coated stand.
Bottom was old white chalk paint and top was stained on this kidney shaped side table.
This stand went through many layers of paint to achieve this look. It was originally dark stained, then painted red then this blue/grey color topped it off. Sanding revealed the many layers for the look of an old, antique piece.
This dresser was chalk painted then dry brushed with stain to create a country primitive old look.
This dresser was stripped and top and drawers were stained and side were chalk painted cream.
Pure white antique bureau was distressed and clear waxed for a crisp, clean look.
That's it for now. I will add other posts on specific pieces and projects, but this gives a general idea of finishes available for any furniture you would like upcycled.
