Restoration Hardware antiqued natural stain

Has anyone ever duplicated Restoration Hardware's antiqued natural stain process. It is just what I would like on new maple cabinets.

Rather than asking us to match a brand approach, can you post a picture or point us to what you are trying to achieve?

And is the piece finished or unfinished now? Can you also post a picture of what you have that you wish to finish/refinish?

I am guessing you are seeking something like this? It was no doubt done with glazing over a stain I would guess. It could be a liming wax type approach though with more left on the surface.

Definitely stay away from that Annie Sloan crap. It is but the cheapest of hobby acrylic and liquid plaster of paris sort of mix.

Google search images for lime or liming wax furniture finishes and see if that might do the trick for you. Liming wax is easy to use and you can leave as much on the surface as you want. Or, you can buff all off the surface as just leave what fills the wood grain.

It is hard to comment until I see what you have.

My cabinet is exactly like the bathroom cabinet in restoration hardware catalog( the small inset picture). Almost have the formula except the maple hardwood board( drawers) and maple plywood (cabinet boxes) are staining a little different. The drawers are coming out great and yes using stain then liming wax
