I just finished my cabinet in my downstairs half bathroom that I have been working on for the past few days. It was a lot of work, but well worth it.
*Martha Stewart “Heavy Cream” paint
*Paint brushes and paint roller
* Wipe-on Poly *Valspar glaze in “Mocha”
Next I measured and cut two pieces of beadbord and then glued it, using liquid nails, to the recessed part of my cabinet doors. Finally, I finished it off by framing the beadboard with a decorative a moulding. Also, I used three pieces of moldings to make a baseboard, just the perfect height, for the bottom of my cabinet.
Now it’s time to prime. I used two coats of primer and then waited until the next day to apply the paint. I used two coats of paint as well. 24 hrs. later, when the paint was completely dry, I sanded the cabinet just a little bit to smooth out any rough spots or drips.
You’re almost done now…the glaze is so easy to apply. All you need to do is either wipe or brush a coat of glaze on, wait a minute or two and wipe some, most, or all of it off depending on how worn you want it to look.
The directions on the back of the glaze say to wait one week after glazing to apply a clear protective coat. I used a wipe-on polyurethane.
