Faux Glaze–Antiqued Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen Cabinet Glaze 005Kitchen Cabinet Glaze 002
I painted my Kitchen Cabinets last spring and had planned on Antiquing them but, just never knew the right method or color glaze I wanted to use…until last week!  Now I really liked them painted white but, there were parts where I really needed to go back and touch up with the paint.  I decided that the glaze was much easier to hide my imperfect paint job and while I had the idea fresh in my mind I went for it.

I took 1 cup Faux Glaze to 1/4 cup black custom color paint that I used on my front door.  See below picture for paint recipe. Mixed it up and then used a brush to paint it on all over.  Then I took a wet rag and wiped off what I didn’t want to.  I played with the inside of one of the cupboards first before I totally went for it.
Custom Black Door Color
Custom Black door color above mixed in Behr Semi Gloss Paint.  Below is Benjamin Moore Cabinet Coat paint I had color matched to Behr Swiss Coffee that is white with a tint of cream.
Cabinet Paint
Overall I like how the glaze popped the details in the crown rope molding going around the cabinets.  It also just gave an outline and softened the cabinets to be more of worn antique finish and ties in my black antiqued kitchen island.

  3. I think they are so much better with the glaze! Painted wood work is so hard to keep looking nice you can't just coat it with scratch cover like stained wood. I think the glaze was the perfect way to go. I painted just my island black and distressed it because that way if more paint gets knocked off it's okay, right?

  7. Thanks so much for your comments and yes I too painted my island black and sanded it so any chips would look natural! The cabinet coal is awesome paint because you can touch up the paint and it gives a smooth finish when it dries. Thanks again for stopping by! ~ Stacey http://www.realsouthernliving.com

  23. They are a great way to save big when remodeling or working with new construction. However, there are other factors just as important as getting kitchen cabinets wholesale when your budget is tight.Kitchen Cabinet Designs
