I'm A Glazing Fool

As I was painting and glazing my end tables the other day, I found a planter with some fake grass that was in really bad need of some TLC...had my paintbrush with glaze in hand...so guess what?...she got a glazing makeover! The planter was white and I planned on painting it a coco brown color, but I decided to see how she would look with a little glazing and to my surprise...she looked really GOOD!!!! My goodness...this stuff is just way cool...yes you can call me A GLAZING FOOL!!!! Hope all of y'all have a wonderful weekend...I will be cleaning up our home office and maybe I will get a few minutes by the warm fireplace with a cup of HOT CHOCOLATE.
                                                                    See ya soon,
                                                                         Linda
                                                  Here she is sitting on my newly painted table.
                                                    She has a little bit of a stone look.
                           Now most of you know...she was a NIFTY THRIFTY find...got her
                                       at a local thrift shop a few months ago for around $2!
                           If you like buying thrifty items or doing thrifty DIY projects...then be

You are going to get addicted to that glaze! I don't think I commented on your green tables, but they are very cute painted that color. I may have to go buy me some paint and glaze this weekend.

Linda,
I glaze everything too! Our kitchen cabinets are glazed as is the crown mold in the kitchen!
Our master bedroom furniture is off white with a chocolate glaze also. I love the glazed look!
I glaze anything that doesn't glaze me first!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,
Donna

Oohh I'm liking this glazing idea - nice change from white paint. That looks really good.

Cheers,

I redid some furniture for my daughter's bedroom and the dresser is a beautiful blue with a glaze over it too. I sanded it down too, for an old, worn look. I'm no expert, by any means, but I did like how it turned out. I have an end table for my office that I am anxious to work on and I want to glaze it too. I may wait and work on it when the weather gets warmer. Have a wonderful weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

Heaven's Walk - said...

Ok....stupid question here! What kind/color of glaze did you use and what technique did you use to put it on? Love how it turned out! :)

What a difference that glaze made on it! I agree does look like stone. Fabulous! Thanks for joining JFF.

Rosie said...

Hi Linda. What a beautiful green table! You did a fantastic job on it. And the planter looks like stone now. Glazing is like magic, isn't it. It's good to be back in the saddle.

Ms. Bake-it said...

The planter looks great Linda! I like the table you painted and glazed too. Thanks to the advice of Debbie and Linda on my post today I am going to try my hand at painting and glazing some thrifty sconces I found.

It does look good! I think it is so funny how once a blogger gets a paintbrush in her hand...everything gets painted!

Hi Linda~

I love it with the glaze! I think it is so cute, and love the grass inside of it, too. It is sweet, but with a dash of "modern". :)

Thank you also for stopping by and saying hello, and for the kind words about the galvanized window! I so much appreciate it. :)

I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Blessings~
Jenni
