Rustic Turquoise Maple Dresser – Before & After

Rustic Turquoise Dresser - Before & After

This maple six drawer dresser had serious issues! Initially, I wondered what I was thinking to have purchased it. It was spray painted purple and veneer was missing on the top corners. I threw out what pulls were left because they were spray painted a tacky looking silver.

After making repairs and sanding, paint, glaze, and distressing did their magic! Turquoise brought the dresser back to life. Black Glaze highlighted the years of wear on the original finish, creating an eye-catching weathered look. New knobs and pulls topped off the rustic feel of this piece.White-SPACE Rustic Turquoise Dresser FLF

Turquoise Dresser Glazed Black – Before & After

Ornate Dresser in Turquoise with Black Glaze - Before and After from the Facelift Furniture DIY blogOne of the most exciting things about glaze is 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 dresser for 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!
