Burnished Finishes

Burnished Finishes

Burnished Finishes
Random Distressing
Over-sanding on corners and edges of unfinished wood
Darkening Stain is artistically applied to accent raised, profiled and sanded areas

Availability varies on Maple, Cherry, Birch and Hickory1

This technique creates the warm, traditional look of fine furniture. Unfinished doors and drawer fronts are randomly distressed and then over-sanded. Next, a darkening stain is artistically applied to the corners and raised areas, creating a burnished effect. A base stain is then applied and carefully hand-wiped.

  • Burnished finishes are created by a very complex process: random distressing, over-sanding and application of a burnishing stain. The random distressing and hand-applied techniques of burnishing produce one-of-a-kind results where no two doors are exactly alike.
  • Burnished Ginger and Burnished Chocolate include flyspeck highlights. This technique involves a random spattering of a complementary finish color, which adds depth and dimension to the finish.
