Liming Wax on Chest on Chest Drawer

 Here are a few pictures of the chest on chest drawers, after stripping them.  I have not sanded them or anything.

Here is one of the drawers after applying the coat of liming wax, this is the stage where the wax dries for three minutes.

Then I used wax and buffed out the extra liming wax and the haze.  It will get a second coat of wax and then it will be complete. 

Here is a comparison of the two drawers. The one on the left is the one that has been stripped only.  The one on the right has been limed and one coat of wax has been applied.

I really like it.  It is subtle and tones down the pink in the natural wood.  It reminds me of the popular again natural Hermes chairs.
