PAINTING DISTRESSED & GLAZED, GRAY & BLUE OFFICE CABINETS
These are the blue and gray/white distressed office cabinets I just finished painting for the house under construction. This office is small, so I couldn't get a full view.
The cabinets look really good with the wall and trim colors.
I primed and painted the grayish white. I painted the tiny trim with blue. Then distressed and glazed with an antiquing glaze (gray browny glaze) that I mixed.
Last, I sealed them with two coats of a clear low sheen sealer.
These cabinets will get new hardware and I think they are going to put chicken wire in the open doors, instead of glass.
My favorite finish to paint is distressed, glazed and old!
When I was working on the kitchen cabinets I mentioned how smooth the primer on the cabinets was. His painters had primed and sanded them and the contractor said "smooth as a baby's bottom" (ha). I said, I don't want my work to be "smooth as a baby's bottom".
I want my finishes to be chunky, old and uneven. He just nodded his head.
It just so happens, I think these office cabinets are his favorite finish.
I might be doing his kitchen cabinets like this at his home, just different colors.
