A white antique look on 2 small pine chest of drawers.

Brendan asked 4 years ago

I have just sanded the 2 chest of drawers as they had a number of coats of varnish which made them look very orange! We are trying to achieve an ‘antique’ white finish & would be very grateful for any suggestions. One suggestion from a neighbor was to mix talcum powder & Unibond together & finish with a coat of clear varnish.

We were wondering if we could get the effect by using watered down white emulsion paint? I have attached a photo of the sanded down chests to give you an idea of where we are with the project!
