Antique Kitchen Cabinets

Choose your antique stain. The antique stain is the dark stain that will be painted over the top (and then wiped off of) the base color on the cabinets. While any matte stain will work, it is recommended that you select a stain advertised for its antiquing qualities. This is because antique stains are made to be the right opacity, luster, and color to convey an authentic antique appearance. For white and cream cabinets, choose a mid-tone antique stain. For honey/caramel tone cabinets, chose a medium to dark stain (depending on the desired contrast). For dark cabinets in a chocolate or coffee hue, you’ll want to choose the darkest antique stain available. Antique stains cost about the same as regular wood stain, so you’re not losing out financially by going with this option. The higher the contrast between the antique stain and the base color, the more worn and vintage the cabinets will appear when finished.

Giving your cabinets a makeover is a sure fire way to renew and refresh the look of your kitchen. The Home Depot associates who answer questions on our online How-To Community Forums have recommended the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations Kit as a surprisingly easy and cost-effective way to make your cabinets look new again. We’ve even seen some before and after photos a reader posted on the Forums showing off her spectacular kitchen re-do using the Cabinet Transformations Kit. Recently, a regular contributor to the Forums described how he departs from the official instructions on the box to create his own antique cabinet finish. “The door was treated with standard Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformation technique. However, after the glaze was nicely laid out and dried, I then took a dampened 3M scrubby pad and purposely rubbed away some of the glaze to give a worn look. Indeed, some of the base coat was deliberately worn away back to the original finish, again giving a worn look.” Pretty clever, eh? It’s probably a lot of fun, too, deliberately messing up the final glaze. Above, you see a before-and-after display we put together of how this technique looks when it’s done. Here’s a video from The Home Depot’s YouTube channel that explains a little more how the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations Kit works. The video was originally intended for Home Depot associates, to get them up to speed on the product, but you’ll get some good information from it even if you’re not a Home Depot associate. If you have questions about this method of creating an antique finish on your kitchen cabinets, our Forums associates will be pleased to help. The same goes for any questions you might have about paint or stain … or any home improvement project or product you’re interested in.

Distress your cabinets if desired. Although you don’t have to, some people like to add a distressed effect to their cabinets to make them appear even more worn and ‘vintage’. There are a number of ways of doing so, including sanding down the wood over the top of the fresh antiquing glaze, using a hammer to hit the wood and create dents, and lightly tapping the surface with a chisel to create indents. Use your distressing method of choice on all the cabinets so that they look consistent. If you sand down your cabinets, use a dry cloth to wipe off the dust again.
