Tips on Glazing Kitchen Cabinets


Looks very nice !
Question, is that an electric stove...or wood pellet stove ?
I always understood that any wood/pellet stove needed at least 18" hearth to front/side sides to protect floor ?
After reading more maybe I'm thinking of an unlisted stove

So the Mfg states just that much on the front ?
I've heard the pellet stoves are different...that you can actually touch the front (while burning) ?

Thanks! Yep that is a pellet stove and it does not get "hot" on the outside and it is wonderful. As for the Mfrs recommendations on the size or clearance of the hearth pad we did not go by those. Actually there used to be a wood stove there and it was sitting on a concrete pad and we got the pellet stove and when we redone the kitchen we just tiled over it. It does not get hot like other stoves. It is great and we love it!

excellent work amazing to me that people will intentionally make the crevases of their doors look like there is dirt in them. at my house with grandkids if we dont clean they start to look like that with no effort

I used Benjamin Moore paint and I recommend it. It covers great and goes a long way. The cabinets are painted with BM "bare" (oc-98) and I used Minwax gel stain "Walnut" (606) in the cracks. The walls are BM "sweet orange" (2017-40) and "yellow haze" (2017-50). Thanks!

Glazed cabinets, when done well can really update and ad a custom look. We use Adi Color glazes over water based paint such as PPG Manor Hall and finish them with Rudd water based lacquer or Ben Moore Stays clear. Here are a couple of projects that we have completed... as well here is a link to our site to see many more decorative finishes for cabinets.

Tips on Glazing Kitchen Cabinets


Hiya Kahic, well first of all what kind of look are you wanting to get?? I wanted the glaze to be only in the crevaces of my doors so I used a gel stain. I did a practice door with the "all over glaze" and it was good too but not the look I wanted. Let me know and I will explain how I done both.

Tips on Glazing Kitchen Cabinets


Your kitchen is fabulous! I love it! I am about to do the same to my cabinets. I am a fan of gel stain, I have used "old masters" throught my home as we move from room to room updating our 80's home. I was searching for posts that included gel stain over painted cabinets. So glad I found your thread. I am wondering about the finish types. for example- did you use water based primer, and water base paint, then gel stain- which is oil based, then what did you use for a top coat- and was it water or oil based?

Just as fyi, on the doors and trim that I have resurfanced I used oil based gel stain, and sealed with min wax water based sealer- worked great and looks great too! I was told to used the water base sealer- so that the wood would not yellow/darken over time. Thanks for the great info on your kitchen!
