In all my year of painting, glazing and distressing furniture, there’s something that never grew old with seeing how a dated, weary old piece of furniture could pop back to life with a great new look.

Building upon eye catching design, old pieces are brought back to life with how the colors of paint, glaze and distressing work off each other.

The paint provides a transformative new color.

The glaze accents black or brown against that color, highlighting molding and highlighting the wear and tear on a piece.

Distressing pops out the contrasting colors of not only wood tones, but primer too.

This combination add character and class to pieces destined to college dorms, thrift shops or roadside curbs?
