How To Give Your Painted Furniture The Old Antiqued Look

To glaze or not to glaze? When to glaze? Why glaze? And what the heck is glaze?

These are the questions! Right?

As a shabby style painter, there is always a place for glaze in my life. Yes on donuts, but also on furniture and decor!

And yes, much like glazed donuts, think of it that way exactly! Your Junk Monkey Antiquing Glaze SITS ON TOP of your paint!

It's a medium that is used not to completely cover your paint, but to darken it, like you are looking through sunglasses, and give it a time worn look.

Just like a page over time starts to turn brown around the edges, or a picture frame collects dust in the corners, your furniture can be made to have a "faux" look like this with glaze.

And yup, what color is dust or dirt? Brown, black..right? So yes, those are the two most popular glazes we sell. 

We also have a highlighting teal glaze patina that is great for getting a lime wash or beachy kinda look!

See them all here.

Watch me take the beginning steps to glazing in my behind the scenes YouTube Vlog here: (*subscribe to my YouTube Vlog here)

(Note: There's A Part on the link further in this article to watch the glazing come to life on top of this paint step!)


PART TWO: Click here to see that fun Facebook video & see it all go down! I think it will reallyyyy help you! Easy peasy you've got beautiful shabby furniture & signs!


P.S. Get that little brush I'm loving using to apply my glaze here.

Happy Painting!
