What a boring title… So literal.
Anyhow, hope you’re having a great day.
I spent a significant portion of my weekend (and last weekend) working on my bathroom cabinets.
They started out a very honey yellow wood tone. Not my vibe. They are solid wood so I decided not to trash them.
I’d been wanting to try Jenny Komenda’s cerused oak technique, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity.
I sought out with enthusiasm, placating myself with the nice view outside.
I finally got them clean.
The shellac really glosses up the finish. See it next to the unfinished cabinet to the right?
I then attempted the briwax liming wax, and I didn’t photograph this step. Needless to say, I quickly found out this isn’t oak. There wasn’t enough of a hollowed out grain to capture the wax. So I will just leave these as shellac’ed ebony cabinets.
The ceruse will need to wait for some real oak.
🙁 Sad DIY fail . Sorry Jenny!
I still need to finish the base cabinet. But I’ll have to wait until the bathroom is accessible again.
Have a great week.
