If you've never used it, Rub 'n Buff is such a versatile product. It is a waxy type paste that comes in a large variety of colors. A tiny amount goes a long way and it can be used on wood, metal, frames, and many other surfaces. I loved it for this project because I didn't have to tape anything off, I just used a little from the tube and it spread very easily and dried to a permanent finish quickly.
Now, if I could just come across this kind of a deal on a china cabinet for my dining room, I'd be set!
