Glazed Chair

We've had this chair move with us from our apartment to our house.  I'm going to say we've had it, in it's below condition, for at least a year, if not more.

We've talked a lot about making this chair a little prettier and this weekend we finally got around to doing it!

We bought the below items for the project:

Then we got started!

First we sanded the chair down, but not too much because we wanted some blemishes.  We were going to fill a few of the cracks in the wood but then decided that they weren't affecting the stability of the chair and we liked the character they added.  So we left the cracks.

Next, we sprayed the primer on the chair and then waited patiently for it to dry.

Once dry, we sprayed on the ivory gloss spray paint we choose.  (I know, hard to tell in this picture since the primer is white...)
Clearly, at some point one of us got a little heavy handed and some dripping occurred...
We sanded this part down slightly so it was smooth and then re-sprayed this section.

Next came the fun part!

With paint brushes, we applied the glaze we had tinted with black paint at Lowes.  We brushed it all over the chair, being sure to get the glaze in all of the nooks and crannies.  

Then we gently wiped it off with a damp towel, being careful not to wipe out the nooks and crannies.

And the end result....

We are so pleased with the end result and look forward to our next glazing experience!
