As you can see with each of these steps you are going to achieve a very different look. They each have their pros and cons.
Why do I like glazed furniture so much?
I love how the glaze sinks into all the cracks, it often times makes imperfections look like they are supposed to be there. After all refinished furniture is second hand furniture and most of the time isn’t perfect. That is what I love about it, added character. The piece tells a story about its past.
If the furniture gets dinged it doesn’t looks chipped or out of place, it blends in with the character of the piece. It holds up much better with kids (I speak from experience)
But my favorite part is it seems to be the final touch that really brings the piece to life!
I hope this helps a little bit
