Tips on Glazing Kitchen Cabinets


Thanks!!! I used water based for everything except for the gel stain which was oil of course. I used water based poly for the final finish. Good luck!!

Tips on Glazing Kitchen Cabinets


Hey

Just saw your post and pics, I am trying to tackle the same job with same or very similar results.

If possible could you guide me step by step so I know what to do, I have read so many things online and not sure which way to do it.

I know this was a year ago or more so sorry if you do not have time, I just wanted to ask a real person how they did it instead of a pro

Thanks

Jos

Tips on Glazing Kitchen Cabinets


Lowriderchic, Your cabinets looks great. Did you use a brush for your paint coat and what paint did you use?

You might consider installing Beadboard and/or architectural details like corbels or turned legs to the backside of your island to kind of pull together your new kitchen look. Very easy to do and adds a nice detail. You could then paint with the same techniques you used for the cabinets.
Nice job!

Hi Lowriderchic! I love what you did with your cabinets! I would like to do the same look to my kitchen cabinets with the antiquing only in the crevices. Do you have any step-by-step instructions that you can email to me? Sorry, I'm over a year late as well!

Lowriderchic, You did a beautiful job on those cabinets! Wow! I'm about to do the same thing, but was going to use brush and roller. Until now, that is! What kind and make was the sprayer you guys used for your kitchen cabinets. There are so many different types that spray so many different ways. Hope you can help me with this one! Thanks!

Hi Lowriderchic
I love your cabinets!!! I am about to do some glazing on mine...but can not get any helpful advice (i think the guy at menards thinks i'm nuts!)
i have my cabinets (lowers) painted a florida key blue and would like to use gel stain in hickory over them...how long did you let the paint dry before you put the stain on?
Thanks so much!!
Julie

nice job on the cabinets. I'm doing my upper cabinets now, still in the painting stage, but once done and wait the 30 days before glazing. Glad you mentioned gelstain. I asked a girl in Home Depot, and she told me I shouldn't use stain, glad it worked for you.

Since it's been almost 3 years, would be interested to hear how well the painted doors held up I hear pros and cons of putting poly over paint, so that's why I'm asking.
