This dresser is one of my most recent projects. I achieved the finish using a glaze, which I had never used before, but I will be using a whole lot of now. I really like the finish that the glaze created and working with it was so easy. The great thing about glaze is that it’s clear, so it can be mixed with any color paint, which makes for endless possibilities!!
I got so caught up in all of the excitement that I forgot to take a before picture, so here is a during shot.
Here is what this dresser looks like now. I lack patience. I actually snapped this photo with only half of the hardware back on the dresser, hence the oddly cropped photo (it does show off how pretty the detail is though).
