In the early 2000's glazing and distressing kitchen cabinetry was all the rage. So much so that many homeowners and daring DIYers tried their hand at glazing their own cabinetry. Some with mixed results. Such was the case with one of our recent kitchen projects.
Before- Heavily Glazed and Distressed
The glaze on these cabinets was making the kitchen look dirty. The distressing was deep and probably done with an electric sander leaving deep gauges in the wood.
After- Clean and Bright
We cleaned up these cabinets, filled in some of the deep gauges with wood filler, primed, painted and top coated for a new bright clean look. We used one of our favorite creamy white kitchen cabinet colors- Sherwin Williams 7008 Alabaster. This color looks great with brown and yellow toned stone and granite.
We also painted the island which the homeowner was on the fence about. See how lightening up that dark color really brightened the whole space?
Cabinet Glazing done right
There is a place for glazed cabinetry in an updated kitchen. A glazed cabinet can look fabulous and current IF done by a professional. Check out this post I wrote all about GLAZING.
