Yup...you read it correct. I did a little dabbling in some furniture refashioning this week. I got this old hope check from a friend of my mothers. I thought it would be a fun project to try out some painting and glazing on. I have painted some furniture before but never glazing. I am thinking not bad for my first time. Would love to know what you think.
Here is a before....
Here is the after...
My friend Patti West inspired me. She has been painting furniture for some time now and every time I am on face book seeing her latest project I am in awwwwww. I just had to give it a try. Thanks Patti!
Here are some close ups....
I used a mustard color paint from Home Depot. If you live in Shrewsbury and need some help go see Kay at HD. She is fantastic!
I got my glaze from Sherwin Williams. It is tinted with Van Dyke Brown. I distressed the edges and top with sandpaper, a big old chain that Gregg took off the camper for me, and a hammer. That part was really fun.
I used a spray matt finish for the top sealer, did not really work out so well, kind of blotchy. But, I took some steelwool to it and it look pretty good after that.
So what do you think?
What do I think??! WOW! All of those techniques in your very first piece...you're killin' me, MF!! I love the base color w/the distressing to highlight that beautiful piece - and the tinted glaze on top looks gorgeous!! This piece really turned out awesome MF...now I'm inspired by you! :)ReplyDelete
Very nicely done. I think I might have to try this with my dresser. I haven't done any furniture makeovers in a long time. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
This turned out beautifully MF! Looks great.ReplyDelete
