PROVINCIAL DRESSER MAKEOVER WITH GLAZING
- Rustoleum white primer spray
- Homemade chalk paint (See chalk paint recipe here)
- Black glaze (Valspar clear glaze + black latex paint)
- Minwax Polycrylic Spray – satin
- sponge roller
- purdy paintbrush
- chip brush (for glazing)
- baby wipes
1 – I Lightly sanded the whole piece (120 grit).
2 – Cleaned entire piece with TSP solution and paper towel and then cleaned again.
3 – Taped and covered with paper the inside of the dresser and drawers to avoid primer overspray.
4 – Primed everything with Rustoleum white spray primer.
5 – Rolled first coat of paint over large areas with a sponge roller (I made my own chalk paint with 2 part of latex paint and 1 part of Calcium Carbonate).
6 – Brushed same paint on corners and details (I ALWAYS use my PURDY paintbrushes).
7 – After it dried, repeated steps 5 and 6 for the second coat.
8 – When paint was totally dry (4-6 hours) finished it with glaze.
6oz of clear glaze (I used Valspar); 1 table spoon of black latex paint (mixed them to make black glaze); a chip brush; baby wipes.
1 – Brushed glaze over a small area, i.e. a drawer. Immediately wiped glaze off with a baby wipe with steady linear movements (horizontal for drawers and top, vertical for sides).
2 – Repeated step 1 on other small areas. The largest area was the top.
3 – After piece was dry, applied some brush strokes on the edges of piece (see pictures) using a chip brush “dirty” with black glaze. The brush was almost dry, with just a tiny bit of glaze.
