How to Glaze over Chalk Paint
After I lightly distressed the edges with 220 grit sandpaper, I sprayed on a couple coats of my absolute favorite polyurethane. Sealing the paint with poly is absolutely crucial before you put glaze on chalk type paint.
I wanted to add a bit more character to this piece, and glaze was the perfect way to achieve that.
Using a cheap brush, I applied the glaze, making sure it got into every detail of the dresser, and then I used baby wipes to wipe it right back off. I made sure to leave a bit of glaze in the corners and on the edges, but wipe most of the glaze away. In some spots I went back with the brush that had very little to no paint on it, and lightly brushed some more details on.
I gave the glaze plenty of time to completely dry and then I sealed it all up with General Finishes Flat Poly.
One of my favorite things about green though is that it’s a neutral color. Yes it’s neutral! We use greenery and plants all over our homes to bring our home and decor to life. I think this dresser does that too! This dresser is now so unique, bold and sassy! It’s the perfect pop of color, but it’s also elegant and fun!
