Just Glaze It!




I found this cute little chair for .75! I love "little" chairs". I even hang them on the walls. But, what is more exciting is that I have wanted to use my antiquing glaze. So this was the perfect thing to experiment on. I must say it was so fun and it is amazing how easy it is! I have seen this on a couple of blogs (wish I could remember!), too. It is amazing what you can glaze!





Just need the glaze, a brush and a rag. After you have painted it the color you want, you dip your brush in the glaze and apply to your "object".


Then you take your cloth and rub it in or off until you get the look you want! You may even go back and do some parts darker then others. I did this little chair so I made some of the creases darker to give it a certain look. It is TOTALLY fool proof!



After 24 hours and it has dried...you will be amazed! After doing it for the first time, I wanted to antique glaze anything I could get my hands on. The glaze makes anything painted even better!

Very cute new chair! Thanks for sharing the ideas, the project and the photos.

By the way, I like to stop by your site just to hear that ocean sound. Wouldn't it be nice to be on some warm beach today!

Blessings to you,

Super cute chair Debbie. My kids would love to have chairs like that for their dolls. I have seen them in the stores but i will not pay what they are asking. I will now have to look for some at resale shops.
