$3o Sofa Table

Update to answer some comment questions:
I used Krylon Ivory gloss spray paint in, and then black tinted glaze.  It is solid wood and I sprayed the hardware with a black hammered metal spray paint.  When I glaze, I just take a brush and cover the area, then wipe off with an old rag until I get the look I want, making sure to get glaze in all the cracks and crevasses.  Hope that answers some questions! Thanks for the kind comments!

Well.  I’m sure it’s not technically a sofa table but that is how we are going to use it!
I saw this beauty at Goodwill and snatched it up for $30!  It is very very heavy and sturdy and I loved all the space underneath and the slide out drawers.
The details on the doors were just begging to be glazed! :)
Aren’t the door handles amazing?!

This is absolutely divine. I need to look at things as they can be, not what they are. For the most part, I do, but this is fabulous. Three, errr, two thumbs up!

Absolutely incredible. Was it quite a bit more for the paint though????

Okay, I know nothing about refinishing or glazing, but after seeing your work I sure wish I did!

I love it! I've really gotten into glazing lately, this is amazing! Did you paint by hand or use a sprayer? Is the piece solid wood? The glaze came out really great!
