Cream & Dark Wax Color Combination Love


I love cream and dark wax color combination, like my recent antique dresser or vintage vanity
I recently did a few home decor pieces with Fusion Mineral Paint's champlain and limestone with their espresso wax

All these pieces are for sale with details on my Creative moments Facebook page
