Painted, Glazed & Distressed Furniture

Antique cabinet painted, glazed and distressed in slate blue and black glaze. Before and After from Facelift Furniture.This antique cabinet needed some TLC before refinishing. The top needed glue to firm up loose areas, as did the door and a drawer. Wood glue was also inserted into the side slats to keep them from wobbling.

The cabinet was then refinished with paint, glaze, and distressing. Primed white, it was then painted Slate Blue. Black Glaze accents the molding all the deep wood grain on the piece.  

Distressing reveals the original wood tones. New knobs were added to the door and the drawers.
