Who wouldn’t love the look of glazed kitchen cabinets boasting a touch of vanilla bean over the raw naked maple which is exposed on the edges. While antique painting kitchen cabinets is a hot trend, the price tag associated with this style is not. It is out of range for many who are hoping to update the look of their kitchen- not rack up debt to the tune of the price of a luxury vehicle.
The kitchen cabinet paint ideas discussed in this article will help you achieve the look of transforming your kitchen from blah to amazing.
Glazing kitchen cabinets gives the newly painted kitchen cabinet an older look which is very trendy now. It also complements the look of your kitchen, while muting the modern look of stainless steel which is so popular in kitchens today.
The one thing to remember with glazed kitchen cabinets is it is not a textbook process. It is one that takes a certain flair for artistry when deciding where and how much glaze to remove to achieve the ‘aged’ look. Before you panic, remember it is also a very forgiving process. Glazing kitchen cabinets allows one to wipe the slate clean if you don’t like the look and start over. Just make sure to work quickly before the glaze begins to dry.
Basically the steps involved are mixing the paint and glaze together to
achieve the color you desire, apply the glaze to the door and wipe off as little or as much as you choose. Let paint dry thoroughly and move onto the cabinet drawers and bases performing the same steps. Let everything dry at least a day to assure the surfaces are not tacky when rehanging doors.
