This little chair was rough and I mean rough, but I like it’s rough and toughness. I sanded it some so I wouldn’t get splinters and got my Aurora Staining Gels out. I wanted to keep the rustic feel of this chair. I wanted to experiment more with them on raw wood. It was a match made in heaven. If your piece has any varnish on it you’ll need to remove that before applying Aurora Staining Gels. I used Aurora Staining Gels in the colors Cherry Bomb, Island Paradise and I’m Jaded. I put the Cherry Bomb on first. It comes in these great squirt bottles! So easy to use!
Then I added the Island Paradise.
Then I put a coat of I’m Jaded over the entire chair. After it dried, I distressed it back some and I’m really please with the outcome.
Aurora Staining Gels come in 20 funky colors including 5 metallic staining gels. No top coats needed. Chalk Type Paint can be sealed with Aurora Staining Gels. Soap and water clean up too.
