DIY Success: Painted Cabinet Looks Like Wood! :o)
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.

I'm impressed! I'd like to do this to our front door - paint it to look like wood.

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.
