I’m so excited to share how to turn a dresser to tv stand for your farmhouse style living room. (We removed some of the drawers and made them into shelves for the elctronics!) Then I’ll show how to give your painted furniture an antiqued finish with furniture glaze that also deepens the color for a unique painted finish. We also refinished the top in a fresh wood finish!

Furniture Glaze Tips
- It’s always best to have a coat of poly on your paint before glazing so the glaze doesn’t soak into the chalk paint, making it impossible to work with.
- Let your painted finish start to cure for at least 24 hours before beginning to glaze.
- Then brush the glaze into the details of the dresser with a cheap chip brush.
- Work in small sections, and work quickly.
- Wipe off the excess glaze with wet baby wipes, making sure to wipe in the same direction everytime.
- Let the glaze dry. If you want it darker, go back with another coat of glaze.
- Seal the glaze with water-based poly for the best protection.
