An acrylic water based glaze is the best option for an already painted kitchen cabinet. If your cabinet has not been painted in recent times, then you can choose an oil based glaze, instead of the water based one. Crackle painting and faux painting are among the other options that you can use to give your kitchen an antique look. For crackle painting your kitchen cabinets, you need two colors of latex paint and a crackle glaze. Apply the base color to your kitchen cabinets after they have been cleaned thoroughly and allow it to dry. A thick coat of crackle paint is then applied on the base color. The top color is finally applied on the crackle paint.
The Traditional Theme, A lot of us refuse to succumb to the ever-changing trends in the world of design and wish to stick to the confines of traditional design that we believe defines our personal style. Black is so versatile a color that it can be molded into any design and any theme. As such, incorporate such antique cabinets into your traditional kitchen design. These are actually similar to the ones that have been mentioned in the rustic theme, minus the distressed look. The unique motifs that adorn them, along with the molding and traditional handles, all speak for themselves when used. Use marble, instead of granite, for the ultimate traditional appeal. Incorporate yellow lights and not the contemporary white ones for a warm feel. Combine these cabinets with redwood flooring and some unique colors, and create a unique combination of a traditional-yet-rustic appearance.
To faux paint your kitchen cabinets, you will require at least two colors, a crackle paint and a tinted painter's wax. Apply a base color to your cabinets first and then apply a layer of tinted painter's wax. You can now apply another layer of color to the same surface and cover it with another layer of tinted painter's wax. Finally apply the crackling paint over the surface. After this final layer of paint dries, simply brush the surface using a sandpaper to remove any irregularities in the surface.
