RH Modern

RH Modern (Restoration Hardware) is all about the weathered wood look.


While there are many ways to get this look the easiest by far is using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. You can hack RH Modern so easily just add a few secret ingredients.

The secret ingredients are:

French Linen

Black Wax

Old White (optional)


This table is a great example of how to get this trending look for so much less. It was a dark brown table with very bad veneer. We stripped of the veneer from the top and finished the top with a light stain. Then we painted the base and finished with Black Wax.


Or this awesome dresser. Just two coats of French Linen with Black Wax straight over the top.

Hint, if you think the Black Wax is too dark, just rub some off with Clear Wax.


DIY doesn’t get much easier than this!

You can find all the essentials to get this look and so many others in our online store.
