Glazed Cabinet

I did it!  Finally! (This post was written in 2011.) 

I’ve been unsure whether to glaze the sink cabinet in our downstairs powder room.  

I really wanted to do it, but I was afraid of how it would turn out and whether or not it would look good. I know it’s just paint, and the cabinet could be re-painted, but the original paint was applied with a professional sprayer, so the finish just would not be the same if I had to repaint it.

Anyway, here is a photo of the Glazed Cabinet.  

I couldn’t get a direct shot from the front because the space was too narrow.  I’m still not sure how I feel about the result. It didn’t come out quite as good as I imagined it, but it is growing on me.

We still need to add a small pencil-edge molding around the backsplash, grout it, and the tile work around the sink will be done.  

I’m also thinking about adding the matching handle to the faux drawer-front. I’m not 100% sure on that. The knobs are from Walmart, so I will just grab one next time I am there so I can test it out.   

**Update**  I finally finished my tile work. See the bottom of the post for some updated photos.

The glazing process was very easy. I used a faux technique glaze by Ralph Lauren called Tea-Stain. I had used this glaze at our old house as a treatment on the walls in my master bedroom and had always loved it. I just rolled and brushed it on and wiped it off with a rag.

  1. Very nice Ralph Lauren’s tea stain glaze has been my go-to for some time. But now, here in California, I can no longer find it or similar products anywhere. I needed a galon can instead of plastic because I need to be able to use that tint formula for tea stain.

  2. I liked it better clean white!! But I love the tips for glazing. I have a piece of furniture that I want to do it with and I hope it turns out just like your bathroom cabinets!

  4. These cabinets are "paint grade": wood boxes with MDF doors. I did not notice any difference in the way the different materials took the paint.

  5. Yes. Glaze! Question–are these thermofoil builder cabinets or are they painted wood cabinets? I'm redoing my kitchen cabitnets complete unexpect gut due to water damage….I opted for white thermofoil in stock cabinets. I wanted antique white, but had to buy everything ASAP so I could have a functioning kitchen. . .I'm thinking of glazing them to customize their stark white appearance.
