Last week (ish) I posted about this magnificent desk from a Las Vegas Goodwill store. It cost me $12.00. I am in the process of refinishing the desk for my 7 year old daughter Oaklyn. Sorry folks the desk is not for sale.
She helped me pick the color, and I’m super excited about it.
Want a sneak peek?
I will be glazing the desk to help accentuate the details of the desk, but I haven’t started the glazing process yet.
Glazing is one of my favorite ways to refinish furniture. If you have been around All Things Thrifty for awhile, you already know this. It’s no secret that’s for sure, but some of you are new around here. WELCOME by the way. So, let me show you a few glazed furniture items to show you what glazing can do.
Glazing allows you focus on the details of the piece. As you can see in this yellow furniture, the details can’t be seen very well at this stage of the process. (I painted this furniture Bauhaus Gold from Krylon by the way).
After I glazed the furniture, the details are accentuated. It changes the look of the furniture completely. To check out more pictures of this project check out my Yellow Furniture post.
These night stands are currently in my master bedroom!
The thing I like most about refinishing furniture myself, is that I can create a unique look that “everyone” doesn’t have. I like creating ultra unique conversation pieces for my home. It makes me happy when someone says, WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR NIGHTSTANDS!?!? I like that my decorating style is different than the usual show room floor at the furniture store.
Here are a couple more examples of glazed furniture that I’ve done over the last year or so:
I have tried to answer your questions about the glazing process in my Glazing FAQ post.
