Step 1: Remove the drawers and paint the tree with “Escape.”
Step 2: Paint the drawers “Everlasting,” and let dry. Paint two more times.
Step 3: Using a white wax candle, rub the wax on areas on the tree that you’d like the Everlasting color show through, including around the sides of the tree. Remove any loose wax.
Step 4: Paint the tree “Romance” by dragging a dry brush loaded with a the paint color across the tree. Leave the sides of the tree “Everlasting.” When dry, light sand over some of the areas you want the “Everlasting” color to peek through.
