This vintage end table with chunky legs was given a whole new life with paint, glaze and distressing.
Lightly distressed, this piece was repurposed as a nightstand.
When vintage furniture from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s is on it’s last leg and seen it’s better day, paint and glaze can help it take a big turn for the better.
Paint offers the hope of a new look, doing away the weary and worn finish. Glaze then brings the piece to life as it accents molding, detail, and the dents and dings that add to the character of the piece.
Then when the painted and glazed piece is distressed, even more detail and depth pop as the original wood tones contrast with the new look of paint and glaze.
Metallic paint accented the drawers and lower molding. Distressing reveals the original wood tones and gold paint.
