Paste Wax links

I have been asked what paste wax I use so I figured I would do a little post to help you out.

I first found out about paste wax from Miss Mustard Seed, she has the loveliest blog!

I use a brown paste wax from Fiddes and Sons available here. I believe mine is the rugger brown.

I finish it off with a couple coats of clear Minwax paste wax. There are some higher qualities of clear wax available on the internet that are easier to work with but Minwax is convenient because I can just run to my local Lowes store to get it.

Miss Mustard Seed took the time to make a WONDERFUL video tutorial on how to use paste wax. I highly recommend watching it. This is how I learned to use it.

Hope this helps! Paste wax really takes distressed furniture to another level in my opinion!

I know you will also want to hop on over to see my lovely knobs on etsy if you haven't done that yet.
It is just amazing how popular they have become in the last few weeks. In my opinion (I guess I am a teeny bit biased) they just really complete the look of a dresser, nightstand, etc. AND they look awesome on distressed furniture!
These knobs have been mentioned by the lovely Stephanie at UnderTheTableandDreaming, Shaunna at Perfectly Imperfect and Marian at MissMustardSeed

Have a lovely day!


  1. Love the paint job on this beautiful old desk. I'll have to check out the video.
