My most recent project

I finally got around to refinishing this hutch that used to belong to my grandmother. I am sure she bought it in teh 70's or something. Last summer I painted it white and had it in McKinley's room until I could figure out what to do with it.
I touched up the paint and filled in the holes from the ugly handles. then sanded the corners.
I mixed about a cup of glaze with some black and brown acrylic paint.

intil it looked like this. nit didn't take very much paint at all. and I didn't use all of this, it doesn't take much.
wipe it on real thick and wait a minute or two and start wiping it off. Keep wiping it off until you have the look you want. I spread it really thick into the corners and crevices.
Keep getting a clean rag every once in a while.

Here it is finished. I LOVE IT!!!
