Time for paint (that’s right no sanding or priming)!
I use Shabby paint brand chalk paint in Worn White. Clear Varnish, and Hazelnut revax. Love their products! the varnish and revax are non toxic substitutes for glazing and waxing. SO MUCH EASIER TOO!!! All of their products are 100% toxin free and made in the U.S.A.
I added 3 coats on the front of the doors and drawers, and only 2 coats of paint on the back of the doors and cabinet frames.
Then, I used Shabby paint brands specially formulated varnish which would substitute for a glaze, wax, or polyurethane. Its 100% toxin free, odorless, and no fumes. The varnish gives a nice sheen and hard protective coating.
Then, I use Shabby brands revax for aging. You simply paint it on with a small artists brush for the look I gave it only in the corners and edging details.
See it in the corners here?
I let it dry overnight then reattach the hardware and hang the doors back up and done!
Now they look great and the detail is so visible!
