In this video, I show a few techniques glazing some wainscoting to achieve an aged look. We used Sherwin Williams “Faux Impressions” glaze.

    The beadboard panels look great! I noticed on the panel next to a room opening you trimmed the wainscoting with quarter round or shoe. I am curious how you blend it in to the baseboard?

    it does make the panels look more defined, but they also look dirty tbh. think it would look better painted a darker color that would naturally bring out the highlights, or painted different colors, although this would be more work

    Sorry bud, last question (for now :-), when you are installing wainscott in a house that has the outside corners with a radius (I'm sure you see this in Texas all the time), do you cut a small piece with two 45 degree cuts, or do you just do a 90 degree corner and then fill in the gaps at the top with caulk and sand? I'm looking to do wainscott in my home and the baseboard has a small (maybe 1") piece at the corners, seems like ripping the long strips with the MDF for the corners with two 45 cuts would be a lot more work. Just curious how you do it. Thanks again.

    Lovely work. I have a question though; what paint sheen do you recommend on millwork that is going to be glazed like this? And in crown molding that has heavy detail, in your opinion, does it look better glazed or just painted white?

    Nice work mate! Do you spray the whole board with the Poly spray? or just the glazed areas? does it lay smooth enough to achieve a good finish?Thanks

    Can you identify the panel mouldings you used going up the stairs around the beadboard?  Awesome stuff, love the vids!!!

    Basically adding the dirt that accumulates over many years. Instant antiquing.

    Using a wet rag, doesn't it take too much of the glaze off?

    Shocking and amazing. Reminds me of a bad stain job and I too would have a problems staining that beautiful white project

    …but what if you want to paint the upper wall a different color than the wainscoting, like green (which I think is a much nicer look, two different colors of paint instead of all white)? The trim doesn't reach the edge of the wall in left corner of this picture, the section behind the 3 chairs. Can you run the trim to the edge of the doorway and blunt cut it? It looks like you did that on the right side of the doorway–why not on the left, too, so you can paint the upper wall a darker color?

    Nice work! Glad I've found your videos. Really enjoying them. We had this effect done in our kitchen, fireplace mantle and surround, and some built-in bookcases. We have a slightly heavier effect with the faint "smearing" to approximate grain lines. It's a neat look and as you say, it makes the detail pop, particularly for 3-piece molding. When I first saw the effect I didn't really like it, but we found an example in a home while planning our new home we built. It looks really good, but you have to take the other elements into consideration such as things like choice of back splashes (or what's already there), counter tops, etc.

    I have a hobby wood shop and I tried this on some small experimental pieces, just to try it myself. You certainly have to get the "touch" right. The key to this style is, to me, keep it subtle. It'll still highlight the details, but can get too much very easily. The gleaming while of non-glazed trim was a little too white. Besides, we have kids and this technique sort-of hides the little marks and blemishes that you get…

    Another detail I had done was faux panels (matching the cabinet doors) on the large pieces on the end of the fridge "box" and outside ends of the cabinets. It makes a nice finished appearance vs. a plane panel. Again, nice work. looking forward to the next vid.

    What paint finish did you use to allow a Ploy spray coat? I'm ignoring the glaze of course, wondering if the paint was mat, semi…etc?

    I liked the rich brown color and I have found the faux impressions glaze but need to know what the mix ratio was that you used in the video? the can says 1 to 3 or 1 to 1 but I don't know which is the deeper. your advice please.
