My SIL, Sunny, was so nice to paint our coffee table and end table for us when we moved. Unfortunately the coffee table when we took it inside was a bit too light gray for us. So we took it back out and worked on getting it to be darker. The end table turned out great. I think maybe more glaze was just left on it? It looked great, so we didn't do anything to change that.
I took the paint that was previously used, added some to a bowl, and then put a little black paint to make it a bit darker. Then when we glazed, we made sure we left a lot on.
All done. It looks pretty weathered and imperfect, but that's how we wanted.
