Rustic finishes are ideal for those older pieces that have marks and dings, it allows you to work with those imperfections; or for those who are looking to add some rustic character into a space, a finish like this can even be done on pieces like veneers or even modern pieces to create a rustic element and character for the home. 

A Sideboard that was once painted in blue with a waxed finish, now redone for a completely new look as part of  Artisan At Home, showing the freedom and ability to paint straight over and give it a completely different look. Using metallic glazes to age and detail creates a lustre that is ever changing and adjusting to light bringing the piece to life. 

A super rustic finish works well on stand alone feature pieces, adding depth and interest to an interior space allowing you to use multiple colours drawing colours from your space to create a cohesive look. 

What was done in order : 


  • Hand painted in  Premium Chalk Paints Imperial linen (1 Litre), Dor Greige (sample pot) Stormy Creek (sample pot) All three colours were painted and blended on the piece as a first coat, strategically placing Stormy creek in areas where we wanted a lowlight or darker detail, then a half coat of touching up here and there using the three different colours to balance out the colours and gain full coverage. All painted with a pure bristle brush, loading paint generously with selected stippling and brushing in all directions to create brush strokes and texture  

    Once dry, Adrianna Premium Chalk Paint was watered down and placed in areas then ragged, as well as Firefly in selected areas only
  • Marko Bronze brushed on with Spalter brush; used to age and knit the colours together, working in small sections once the glaze was touch dry, fine steel wool was used to distress and remove some of the bronze glaze in areas, creating a varied matt and gloss sheen level across the entire piece allowing bronze glaze to sit on the surface in some areas and just between the brushstrokes in others . 

    Milan Moonshadow used as a lowlight over the bronze glaze just in selected areas around the edges, corbels, around the bevels and areas where we wanted to age further, 

  • Forgotten Gold metallic glide used to detail edges and handles.
