I painted this with Emile, and then darkened a small amount with Graphite and applied just around the edges, rings, bands and small places. Then I mixed some Emile with a bit of Old White for a lighter shade and this was applied to all the places having the darker shade, but in a dry brush technique.
After a light amount of distressing, I then applied a coat of wax glaze that was mostly clear with some dark brown. For the final coat on the table top surfaces, I used clear wax only. This was buffed for a nice satin sheen.
I love how this sweet table turned out. Can't you picture this in front of a window with plants on each of the three tiers? I can, and in my purple obsessed brain, the plants would likely be various shades of purple violets! Yes, I need an intervention! :)
