With all that being said, I thought I'd share one of our recent projects. This table and chair set was divine in it's time but...as the gold velvet upholstery and gold flecks indicated, it was time for a make over!
Although I loved the color, I wanted to add a very light antique glazing for some extra depth. I kept it light and mostly just let it settle in the cracks and crevices and slighter alter the color in some of the high spots. And to finish it off, I used polycrylic on the table top for extra strength and portection.
I seriously debated on keeping this one!
Have a fabulous day!
