Tip Of The Week “Don’t Be Afraid To Glaze!”

Tip Of The Week “Don’t Be Afraid To Glaze!”

Happy Tuesday, Friends! This week’s “Tip Of The Week” is all about GLAZING! And we don’t mean donuts. 😉 Here’s the truth of the matter, friends….Glazing can open up a whole new world! You can use colors that you never even thought of using before! It gives you the opportunity to have FUN, be CREATIVE, and to try NEW THINGS! Be BOLD and go for it!

Pictured above, we have the 4 colors that we used for our New Orleans Style Finish on the media cabinet that we have been working on. Can y’all BELIEVE it! As you can see, the colors that we used were pretty WILD, and look nothing like our completed finish. But the trick is, ALWAYS USE BRIGHT COLORS when adding a DARK glaze! That is the KEY! This is because it will darken once the glaze has been applied over it.

We have provided some INSTRUCTIONAL PICTURES and TIPS below if you would like to try your hand at glazing!Continue reading

Okay friends… Our media cabinet is really coming together now! Here is the 1st SNEAKY PEEK of the New Orleans Style Finish! And we LOOOVE IT!  We can’t wait to show y’all our finished product!

We also picked out our knobs today and will hopefully get them on tomorrow once we have finished sealing everything. 🙂

drawer and knob

This is one of our drawer fronts and our knobs. I have a thing for heavy cast iron knobs and pulls. They bring a bit of masculinity to a piece, while the scroll work on the face plate keeps it somewhat feminine. It just goes to show that opposites do go well together!

Our Stain Has Dried And Now We’re Ready For Some Paint!

Hi Friends! We have allowed our stain to dry overnight on our custom media cabinet, and now it is ready for some PAINT! As gorgeous as this Minwax Special Walnut Stain is, it is going to be OUT OF THIS WORLD once we start adding some paint! This is only the 1st of many layers that this media cabinet will see. It will be unrecognizable, in a good way, by tomorrow!
