If you like the aged look and want to know how to use a simple glazing technique to transform your furniture, you’re going to want to read this blog.
Here are the simple steps:
The first thing you want to do is clean it. Once it’s clean spray it with a primer. I like to do this so the paint will stick better.
Next, spray it with Protective enamel paint. I like using Rust-Oleum.
It’s best to use a satin or gloss finish. I used a shell white color for my base.
Next, I mixed glaze and umber tint to create my glaze. It goes a long way so only make a little at a time. I didn’t measure this, but the rule of thumb is to mix 4 parts glaze to one part paint. I used a Benjamin Moore glaze, but any glaze will work. If you’re using tint (like I did here) just add a few drops at a time.
When I’m working on furniture pieces with spindles I like to use this brush.
Apply the glaze in small sections at a time.
Then simply wipe it off with a clean rag. I like using old t-shirts. I would also suggest wearing gloves.
One other thing I forgot to mention in the video is, I also sprayed the pieces with a clear coat to give them extra protection. Here’s the clear coat that I used.
