    Rub tea light candle over edges of chair, wherever you want the wood to show through the paint. Lightly remove any wax crumbs with baby wipes. Apply spray paint to chair in a well ventilated area. Work one section at a time, because spray paint dries quickly. Use baby wipes to wipe away the paint where you applied the candle wax. This allows the piece to have exposed wood edges and gives it that antiqued look. In my case, I had a nice bow detail on the top, and I wanted the wood detail to show through the white paint. If you’re doing more than one, note that it takes an entire can of spray paint to cover one chair.
