I have been crazy busy the last few days. But I did complete another project! Here is my refinished dry sink with chalk paint. This is the last piece of orange oak colored furniture in my house. Whew! I thought I would never be done refinishing all that oak. I have completed my mantel, staircase, 6 pieces of furniture and 6 chairs. Now watch…it will probably be back in style soon. 🙂
And here is the before picture.
Sanding & Paint
The first thing I did was take off all of the hardware and remove the drawer and doors. Next I lightly sanded all of the surfaces with my orbital sander. I then wiped the entire piece down twice with mineral spirits to remove the dust. I painted two coats of Rust-Oleum Chalked Aged Gray with my Purdy paint brush. Here is what it looked like after these steps.
I mixed 2 Tablespoons of Rustoleum Ultra Cover Flat Black with 4 Tablespoons of Valspar Clear Mixing Glaze. Working in small sections, I brushed on the glaze mixture with long even strokes in the same direction of the wood grain. Then with long even strokes, I wiped the glaze off with a folded paper towel. I finished the piece off with two coats of Minwax Polycrylic.
I did chalk paint the inside, but I didn’t glaze it.
One last before and after.
What do you think? Have you used Rustoleum Chalked paints or tried glazing?
