Furniture pieces that have seen their better day are prime candidates for the transformation that paint, glaze and distressing can provide.
Latex paint provides endless color options for a piece of furniture needing a new look.
Faux technique glaze accents that new color, providing a weathered and antiqued look as it accents molding, ornate, detail, and the little dents and dings that add character to an older piece.
Distressing adds even more contrast as it pops out original wood tones and primer as well.
As often as possible, I like to reuse the original vintage hardware on piece, providing a throw back to the original design.
