Find out more about how Lisa from Recreated Designs refurbished this retro cabinet in Driftwood, Chocolate Tart, and Smoky Quartz glaze!

I found this little retro cabinet for $5 one day at a thrift store and thought it would be the perfect little piece to use the Country Chic Glaze on. The basket weave on the cabinet doors was just begging for some paint and highlighting to make it pop and the glaze would be perfect to do that.

Before using the glaze, I gave the outside two coats of Country Chic Paint in Driftwood (a gorgeous neutral from their Spring/Summer collection) and the inside and legs two coats of the yummy Chocolate Tart.

Once the paint was completely dry, I used a thin chip brush to lightly brush the Smoky Quartz glaze all over the piece.

The bristles on the chip brush were very stringy which helped to create lines of glaze that looked like wood grain on the top and sides.

I also used a soft, cotton cloth to wipe the glaze down on the basket weave and make sure it got into all of the nooks and crannies to highlight them.

The glaze was very easy to apply and it’s translucent nature gave it the perfect illusion of texture and depth.
