{click to enlarge}

Here is another time and effort saving tip in our “Painting Hack” Quick Tip series. Prominent Paints shared this clever concept on facebook page and we just love it!

#41 Want to add a distressed Shabby Chic element to a piece of furniture? Rub a white candle over the areas you want the wood to show through. The wax makes the top coat of paint peel off with ease. Gently brush away the excess wax. Now paint your item. Use moist wipes to wipe away the paint in the areas you applied candle wax to.
