Cabinet refinishing is the least expensive way to update your kitchen.  By working with Faux & More Wall Decor, your cabinets will have a breath of new life with custom finishes you have total creative control over!

The cost is generally about 75% less expensive than replacing and about 60% less expensive than refacing.  There is no demolition, no counter replacement and no wall repairs needed when refinishing your cabinets!  That alone saves you hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars. 

Most kitchen refinishing projects can be completed 10 to 15 days with no life and daily interruptions!

There are so many steps when it comes to refinishing cabinets. For me to just say the painting and artistic portion wouldn't do you any justice. However, I'll give you the shortened version:

Sand cabinets, primer them, basecoat paint them using a 4" spongy "weenie" roller. Do at least 2 coats. Once dried, dip chip brush into an almond colored paint. Scrape off excess paint until almost no paint on it at all. Use the SIDES of the brush to wipe color over edges. This is what gives the distressed look. Hope this helps!

Do you paint the cream first and let it dry, then put the glazed on and wipe it down?

What brand of paint did you use along with the exact color names for the cream base & heavy mocha? Having trouble locating these colors.

Thanks!
