Glazing

I gathered all my supplies and headed to the garage..

First I started out by Priming EVERYTHING....note to self-this is why they make those masks to wear!

This stuff smells really REALLY strong!

Next it was time for the Paint...

and more paint....

I let that dry for several hours (while I mowed the yard).  Next it was time for the GLAZE----


Ok, this stuff is a little messy to deal with...but thats ok. I was prepared for it.
Remember what I started with?

with a little LOT of time..... I slowly got this-
I wanted some new hardware for it but decided to spray paint the ugly brass BLACK!  It turned out good as new.

If am really happy with my first ever Glazing experience, I only spent $20 for this desk thingee so in the end I think I came out pretty good.
