How Paint & Glaze Transform Furniture

Weary and worn furniture is all over the place. It’s in our homes, can be found in thrift stores, at garage and estate sales, and occasionally, on the curb!

Yet those dated pieces may have a potential yet to be discovered. A new life may await furniture’s vintage, funky old design when paint and glaze are used to upstyle it’s old look. 

Latex enamel paint offers a refreshing and eye-catching way forward with endless color options. And glaze accents all the great design as well as the charm of wear and tear on an old piece.
