I found my latest decorative obsession during my trip home when I went visit my family in Houston. My sister recently remodeled her kitchen and purchased new living room furniture. When I was there I fell in love with the changes she made to some of her existing furniture, when she added a decorative glaze to them. The biggest transformations were with the fireplace mantel and the kitchen table. Both pieces were originally a dark mahogany wood.

As you can see decorative glazing and paint were used to create this aged and distressed look. My sister did not do this herself; it was done by her decorator. I have done some intense research and want to recreate this look myself on this end table.
I originally bought this table to refurbish it as a new seat for my dog because right now she sits on my ottoman and I want it back. However, I have decided against using this table because it's too high for her to climb. Moreover, once I started working on the table I didn't like the finish I chose and put the table on the back burner. But now that I have seen this decorative glaze on my sister's furniture I love it! I think it will look great on this end table with it's trim and corner pieces. Once I finish my kitchen cabinets I will tackle this project!
