Yes, you can. It is important that the furniture is in a good condition. If it is water damaged or very rough, you need to sand it first so that the wood surface is even. The next step is to clean it very well with lacquer thinners. Wait 20-30 minutes for it to dry and then start painting. You will need 2-3 coats depending on the colour of the paint and also the colour of the surface that you are painting on. After your final coat, you must wait at least 4 hours. You can then apply glaze. Dilute it with 30% water and apply it with a damp cloth. Rub it evenly over the surface. Make sure your cloth is not too wet. Apply at least 3 coats of glaze and wait at least 30 minutes between every coat. Maintenance will still be necessary, if you see any damage, touch it up with paint and glaze. Wood will shrink or swell because of the fluctuations in temperature and therefor touch ups may be needed.
