INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Paint the entire board in Chambray and wipe it off with a damp rag, scrubbing to reveal the wood grain underneath. (This is best achieved in sections, so the stain doesn't dry and it's easier to get the vintage/distressed look.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Stain the heel of each knob in Real Red using the same method listed in STEP ONE.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint the round part of each knob in a solid coat of Everlasting. Paint the stitching in Rouge, making sure one side of the stitching faces one way and the other faces the opposite way.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Sand each knob to create a distressed effect.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint each knob in Clear Crème Wax. While it is still wet, use a dry rag to apply Golden Brown Crème Wax and wipe it around. (This will create a vintage/used effect.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. Use E6000 Glue to secure the knobs to the board. (Or you can use a drill and screws.)
