      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!

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

      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!
