DIY Success: Painted Cabinet Looks Like Wood! :o)
 
:woot:I must share this, I'm still amazed at how great it looks, even though I did it myself!

My mom hated our old yellow cabinets in the bathroom which is now hers. So did I! We did a paint job in a pink-ish brown called 'Pueblo Brown (2102-30)/N333' from Benjamin Moore with an overlay of Mahogany gel stain applied in the direction of the wood grain with a chip brush.

Thanks, it was really nothing, paint the door first. When it's dry do the gel in the chip brush. But it MUST be GEL stain. I saw someone do it on TV, only the paint was much darker and you really couldn't see how great it looks. You have to have the right undercoat for a color, I simply lucked out.

Go for it Ronda! Worst that could happen is you don't like it and you repaint. :teehee:
