When looking at search information related to my blog {I would explain what that is… but I would have to understand it myself}, I find that a lot of people searching for….how to antique painted furniture….. end up on my website……that’s good!

Antiquing or aging furniture is one of my favorite techniques.

The process is really easy and the results can be very dramatic or super subtle.

I use Caromal Colours Toner {dubbed the “miracle product” by me} and it works on all types of paint and furniture.

At least, it works on everything I’ve used it on.
