Of all the products I use to transform weary, dated furniture, glaze stands out for the transformation it provides.
Applied on top of a chosen color of paint, it takes the new look to a whole new level. Without glaze, painted furniture lacks the distinction this translucent paint-like product provides.
Glaze accents molding and ornate areas, and also draws out the wear and tear on a piece that bears the marks of holding up under years of use.
The entire process of painting, glazing, and distressing vintage furniture opens the door for unslightly pieces to find a whole new place in your home.
Glazing furniture is an art that we’ve captured in our DIY eBook Facelift Your Furniture. Along with providing information about every product needed to paint, glaze, and distress, we also provide detailed, step-by-step instructions for making your project a success, with particular detail provided on the glazing process.
