I was going to write an entire tutorial on “How I Glaze My Furniture” but instead I’ve decided to take it easy. No long tutorial. No fancy staging. Just a charming painted and glazed Deilcraft Occasional Table.
This table was the perfect small project to take on while getting healthy. I’m feeling so much better now and I’d like to thank all of you for your well wishes and remedy advice. You’re the best! And all your sweetness inspired me to get better just in time for my Birthday celebrations. Well, close enough… I wasn’t feeling the best on the actual day of so I’ve decided to celebrate for the rest of the week. 🙂
But before I show you the table, I’m excited to share one of my Birthday presents with you. A new Ryobi 10″ Compound Miter Saw. Now I can add extra detailing and moulding onto my furniture!!!
I can’t wait to start using this! And if any of you tool ‘masters’ out there have any advice/tips on using this baby… feel free to chime in below. I’m all ears and eager to learn!
If you follow along on Facebook, you may recall I posted this before pic below. I was asking what the push-spring-thingy was for. Can you guess?
There were a lot of interesting and inventive responses, but only a handful of people knew what it’s really for. This push-spring is for lifting up a glass insert ( which this little table would have originally had) for easy cleaning. Brilliant! I learn so much from you guys!
So here’s the after. This Deilcraft Occasional Table was re-styled in a Custom Turquoise Blue and heavily glazed in black for an antiqued patina. A few coats of high gloss Minwax Wipe on Poly were added for shine.
So let me know what you think in the comments below. Do you like glazed furniture? Do you prefer glazing or dark waxing to get that antiqued look? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
I hope your day is filled with goodness and have fun-relaxing weekend.
