I've linked this post to the DIY Project Parade!
I have several pieces of furniture that I would love to paint and glaze. But, since I have absolutely no experience with glazing, (and not that much with painting, for that matter!) I've been a bit hesitant to try. Well, make that very hesitant!
I love the looks of this painted and glazed end table that I found over at All Things Thrifty.
And this yellow night stand.
All done with spray paint and glaze!
It sounds so easy, but I know me and how I can take something easy and turn it into a disaster!
So I wanted to start out with something small first. I found this nifty little organizer at the Goodwill the other day.
When I saw the detail, I knew it would become my guinea pig!
So I went to Wal Mart and bought some Krylon Ruddy Brown primer and Banner Red spray paint. Then I stopped at Lowe's and picked up some black-tinted glaze.
I carefully followed any directions I could find about glazing on the blogs I follow, and this is how it went:
Sprayed with primer:
And the finished product!
So what do you think? Does it look okay? I think maybe I left too much glaze in the grooves. Then I look at it again and like it!
What do you think? Any tips or advice would be much appreciated!!
