vahid, from the looks of the pictures of projects that she post, rivergirl does a pretty good job of making projects with that antique look.

A question for rivergirl…do you use latex paints, lacquer or oil base enamels?

Thanks

I know I own a DVD where Norm Abram had gone to a Windsor chair maker that made all their chairs look very old and original. It might be on line . Thats one of the most authentic looking antiquing jobs I’ve seen.

Here is a link to the persons shop that norm went to . http://www.windsorsbybillwallick.com/
It’s kind of hard to see the finish.
