How paint, glaze, and distressing add charm to chunky furniture. From Facelift Furniture's DIY BlogChunky vintage furniture pieces like this bed are perfect candidates for the charm that paint, glaze and distressing bring.

Dated and dreary, these pieces take on a new life. With paint, color takes the piece in a new direction. With glaze, detail as well as dings and dents are accented.

And with distressing, original wood tones pop out and provide a great contrast to the new look.

The head and foot boards for this bed were refinished in Off White and Espresso Glaze.
