French distressed furniture look by refinishing using flat white paint and rubbed with brown shoe polish. It was then given a coat of water based satin polyurethane. Perhaps the Trewax that I bought would also work.
"I love the details on this piece! This small buffet is painted navy with white accents. There are so many unique carved features on this buffet. The front has two doors which open to two small drawers for storage. The legs are intricately carved and the stained top has a beautiful carved edge detail. This would look so good in a living or dining room or an entryway."
