allthingsthrifty.com from their glazing 101. Except I made my own glaze with one part dark brown paint, four parts water. This furniture was my great grandmothers and has been sitting in my basement guest room not very loved. And it was showing it's wear and years of previous love. I thought about painting it for a few years. really. And finally did it. I primed it, got a quart of off white oops paint for a dollar, painted, and then glazed. I love it now! It has a similar looking sister too that has yet to be painted!
