When Georgie came to me, she was a bit of an ugly duckling. Not much to say about her back then. She was brown, dated, and boring.
Here she is in her former days:
Her top was bit scratched up so I stripped her down so that she would have a nice smooth finish.
I decided to paint her a soft, pretty gray and try my hand at glazing for the first time. I wanted the glaze to simply accentuate the details, not overpower the piece. I mixed some craft glaze that I bought at Hobby Lobby with some white and black paint until I mixed the right color. I love how the glaze brings out her pretty details.
I decided against buying new hardware and spray painted her former hardware white. Then, on a whim, I decided to glaze the hardware too. I think it added a fun little touch!
Here she is now:
A few days after I had bought Georgie for thirty bucks, the guy told me he had a bedside table that looked just like her. So, he brought that to me and I finished the little one just like her.
I'd love any input!
