I've seen furniture finished in an Asian style that looks like the wood was painted a deep red then covered in black and had the black rubbed off of some of the edges and corners. Kind of an antique-like feel. I'm not sure how to describe it other than that. Does anyone have an idea of how I would go about doing this? I'm thinking of using up some of my scrap lumber to build several small candle shelves that would look good with this type of finish and it would fit the Asian theme of the room where they'll hang.
