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!

    1. Thanks, Danielle! The color is Lowe’s Valspar Turquoise Tint. The glaze is Ralph Lauren Black Truffles with extra black.

    1. I purchase Ralph Lauren Glaze at a local specialty paint store. Home Depot is carrying it again now, but aren’t using the same color codes they used to have for tinting glaze. I’m working on finding a fix for this.
