I picked up this table at the local D.I. a few months ago for $5.00. Yep, I said $5.00. I thought it had great potential since the details were so ornate. It was a little beat up, but that just gives it more character.
It caught my eye because a glazing technique would look great on a piece of furniture like this. She has been in my garage since January. (So many projects, too little time!)
I did NOT sand it down, but I did spray prime it with KILZ. I would not suggest any other brand of primer. Every other brand I have ever tried does not work as well, trust me.
If you need to click on the below image please do. I think some may be intimidated by the glazing process. Glazing is VERY easy, and is simply trial by error. I use a damp cloth and use the technique that we’ve explained in several previous posts. Go to our Glazing 101 post for the simple directions.
We do NOT use stain for this process. We have had several inquiries regarding stain. This is NOT stain. It is a water-based glaze.
