Make something old new again with the paraffin wax distressing technique and Americana Decor®.


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • sandpaper
    • ruler
    • pencil
    • cloth
    • 1" flat brush
    • paraffin
    • wooden cabinet



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Dust off the cabinet and paint all over with Treasure using the 1" flat brush.
    2. Rub paraffin over any surface you want to remain Treasure. For a lot of Treasure, rub a lot of paraffin. For just a natural distressed look, rub it on all of the edges and under the knobs.
    3. Leaving a 3/4" border around each door front, measure out diamonds using the ruler and a pencil. (Adjust the size of the diamonds to the measurements of the door fronts.)
    4. Paint half of the diamonds with Inheritance and the other half with Everlasting.
    5. Using sandpaper, sand where you put paraffin to reveal Treasure. Keep sanding until you achieve the desired look.
