One of the most exciting things about glazeis how it accents detailed, ornate furniture pieces. Combined with a great paint color, glaze draws out all the character of a weary and worn piece of furniture just waiting for a new look.
Take this dresserfor example. After sanding major wear on the top, it was ready for a new look. I painted it turquoise, and then went to work with the glaze. This is one of the first pieces where I used glaze to accent detailed areas in this way. It was very rewarding, and with new hardware, it took on a new life!
Ralph Lauren “Black Truffles” Glaze was used to create this finish. As seen here, glazing is an art that rewards great results on ornate furniture pieces.
Fall is the perfect time for a DIY furniture refinishing project in the garage! With cooler temperatures and summer heat behind, the door opens on a great opportunity to tackle a furniture project before the holiday season settles in.
Living not far from Houston, we don’t get to enjoy many of these days till October. Well, they have come, and this dresser is what I was working on today. With two coats of Turquoise and Off White, glazing and distressing come next.
