WOW! Martha Living Metallic Glaze

My customer, Melissa, came by the Store several times during the last month to explore refinishing a table that appeared to have originally had a black lacquer finish. The finish was fading, but she wanted to recover the piece.


We spent time discussing how to remove the old finish and then how to build a base-coat. Finally, we worked on color combinations using Behr Satin and Martha Living Metallic Glaze.


Have a look at her outstanding DIY faux finish on the drawer for the table.



Here's a close-up ... GREAT Job Melissa!!!



She couldn't bring the table to the store, but she was very gracious to share her handy-work.


I hope she'll be able to come on the Community and show us the full piece.


I made this video to describe several of the steps. Have a look:  VIDEO

NOTE: Yes I know! In the video I said the photo was "below," but Melissa did the work and she deserves top billing!
