My friend Laura said, "Do you want to paint it for a quick sell it have fun with it?" I chose FUN! It sold too, not quickly but quick enough.
When I found it, it had been painted white with lavender flowers. Several coats of General Finishes Holiday Red Milk Paint covered the white. I sealed the entire piece with General Finishes High Performance Satin Top Coat and then applied the glaze. Finally I applied two coats of Top Coat and lightly rubbed gold holding wax on the accents and hardware.
