Turquoise and Glaze

Anyone else who feels the need to glaze? It just makes a huge difference from a flat finish to a fantastic finish especially when there are carved areas that should pop and not get lost. I found this beauty of a dresser on CL a while back. The carvings on it are amazing! The disaster of a garage in the background not so much.

There were a couple of carved pieces missing so I used this method to replace them.

Usually I glaze the entire piece but this one I decided just to highlight the carved areas and recessed trim with glaze.


Love what glazing does.






I really love this one. The wood top is so pretty and happily didn't take long to remove the old stain. I gave it a fresh coat of Minwax Dark Walnut. The paint color was a concoction of oops paints left over paint from my new bathroom color. I'll post about that soon....changin' up the bathroom on the cheap.

Beautiful! Love the way the glaze brings out the details. I know dark wax is all the rage now, but I still prefer using glaze.
