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


this long shelf with drawers, oval tin, cabinet door, lazy Susan, little spice rack and salt & pepper set

I added Fusion Mineral Paint metallics to give some sparkle




Crackle medium was used on the tray and Fusion's fresco on the spice rack for texture


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