So from one of the many cabinet doors we purchased that fine Saturday this is what I created:
Good ol' cabinet door...just so happens to match my kitchen cabinetry. =)
Gently sanded with fine grit and ready for some Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Water Base Primer
Once the primer was dry I painted it with two coats of blue that I created using Ace Hardware's Noble Blue as the base and adding Ace Hardware's Basalt and Brown Oxide Craft Paint. I was hoping to deepen it but since I'm not an experienced paint mixer, I took what I got.
Dried paint. Sanded with medium and fine grit sandpaper using my palm sander. I made sure to distress the center, edges and where the cabinet is beveled.
Sanding it exposed both the cabinet's true color and the white of the primer. I used Walnut Distress Ink to distress and age the sanded areas. I also ran it along the inside center to create a natural aged look.
I added two handles that I picked up at the ReStore for $.50 each. I dry brushed some of the brown craft paint on them. Needed a more vintage feel.
(yep, I like)
Hope you like it too!
