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.

For the best look, don't combine these pieces of furniture with any other color, or they will take away the attention from the distressed furniture pattern you have tried to create. With their well-defined molding and similar elements, they are the most suitable choice for this theme. Use warm colors such as the rich, golden-yellow backdrop or even kitchen countertops in this color, against which the cabinets will stand out, to create a comfortable, cozy combination while working around this theme.

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 make them look massive, you need to put on heavy crown molding. You also need to give special attention to the height. You can also have them reaching all the way to the height of your ceiling, while you get the walls behind the kitchen countertops with vertically-installed groove boards and simple tongues. You also need to give special attention to the knobs, handles, hinges, pulls, latches, covers, locks, and keys. All these factors must reflect the heightened sophistication of urban lifestyle, and hence, make sure they are made using materials, like cast iron, brass, or porcelain. Also, get bail pulls, ring pulls, or drop pulls; flush, butt, half mortise, barrel or offset hinges, etc., to get a kitchen design, which has a perfect Victorian feel.

Apply a certain amount of glaze color on a limited area of the kitchen and start rubbing it using a wipe or sponge, until you get the desired color on that portion of your wood work. Once you are done with that particular area, color the remaining portions using the same process. Take care, that the entire cabinet has the same uniform color. One very important factor is that you need to choose a proper color. For antique kitchen cabinets, you should use metallic colors.

Keep in mind that, since you are following a particular theme, it should be applicable to your whole house and not just your kitchen. You don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb because of your desire to solely revamp your kitchen. The overall theme does not have to be blatantly prominent, but elements of a particular theme must be present all over your house for a better effect.

If possible, get movable cupboards. If it's a base cabinet, then it should have turned legs. The décor in question is an assortment of stained and painted finishes. As long as the colors are complementing each other, you can use a combination of even three to four colors. Along with colors, they must also bear different depths and heights. Some should be deep, while some should be shallow. If you are aiming for wall shelves, then you can opt for the open style. Now, we come to the material to be used. Well, most of the rich, stained, and dark types of wood, like oak, birch, chestnut, cherry, elm, etc., are suitable materials for the typical urban cupboards. Light-stained materials would mess up the mood of your kitchen.

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.
