Just a quick update on using Valspar’s Furniture paint with Antiquing glaze. In case you missed my original post you can read it here. I started with an round dining table from a thrift store, it is the perfect size for my dining room and I had been looking for one for a long time. The top, however, was a mess you can read all about what I did to make it look like a wood grain top here. The legs were in pretty good shape but were very shiny. They looked high gloss shiny so knowing how important prep work is I gave them a quick sanding first and then painted it with a coat of Bonding Primer.
Even with Primer, it took three coats to get the coverage I wanted. After letting each coat dry (8-12 Hours), I was ready to apply the glaze. Applying glaze to the detail on the legs was fairly simple, I used Valspar’s Antiquing Glaze and a small hobby brush. It was applied to the areas where I wanted to accent the detail. Working in small sections I applied the glaze and then wiped off the excess with a lint free cloth. I wanted a very subtle affect so when I was painting it on I did so very lightly.
I was done at this point, there is also no need to topcoat after using the glaze unless you are doing a heavier glaze finish then you may want to coat with a polycryclic or other water-based topcoat.
I also finished a run of cabinets in my family room that I am using for a media area.
Still a favorite paint among the types of paints I have used.
I hope you enjoyed the update, if you have any questions just put it in the comments and I will get back to you soon.
