I started with this bright shiny white tortoise shell from Nate Berkus at Target.
I wanted the end result to look like one
I started with 2 coats of Annie Sloan paint in Coco.
Then I dry brushed on Behr's Swiss Coffee in random areas, going every which way.
When that was dry I used a combination of clear and dark wax, paying special attention to getting the dark in most of the crevices.
I am really happy with how it turned out.
It looks more realistic than the Target version I started out with.
I've had this kicking around my storage room for a while now so I am glad to be able to put it to use!
