Vintage Furniture REDO

Dated vintage furniture often has features that look great when painted, glazed and distressed

Vintage furniture with chunky legs and highly molded features look great with the pop of paint and the contrasting effects of glaze.

Distressing draws out those features even more, as original wood tones show through. Primer popping through can also add to the contrast with the new color!
