It's been a while since I last created a post on here. I apologize! We were out of town and I'm just now getting back into the swing of things. This week I hope to show you some of my furniture projects.
I finally got the courage to try out a decorative glaze. I found this Rustoleum Java Brown Decorative Glaze from Home Depot.
This side table was originally used in my living room, but it's now in my guest bedroom. I found it on a garage sale for $7. I finally decided to add a fun color to it.
|During. This is before distressing and glaze.|
I then distressed the piece with sandpaper and added the glaze. Be sure you've allowed plenty of time for the regular paint to dry before distressing and applying the glaze. I used a foam brush to wipe on the glaze and then an old rag to rub off the excess. It's really up to you how much you want to leave on.
|The distressing is more noticeable on the corners.|
The glaze really tones down the color and gives it a much richer look!
