Work your brush back and forth, back and forth in the direction of the wood: horizontal or vertical to create lines.
Keep working an area until there isn’t glaze coming off of the brush and you need to re-load it with glaze.
Try to avoid overlapping!
I worked the horizontal sections first trying to avoid the vertical slats. Make sure you get ALL surfaces. I did overlap on edges and left it because I liked the look!
If you overlap, luckily glaze is forgiving and you can wipe it off with a damp paper towel before it dries.
Here is a close up of the final driftwood gray finish!
Wait for it to dry overnight, before adding pillows or cushions so the finish is as hard as possible!
You can see I couldn’t get into the hole where the chain is, but it doesn’t hurt the overall effect.
