White Cabinets Painted to Look Like Wood

My White Oil painted cabinets were old and dingy, plus I spilled hair dye on a cabinet. Those of you who did not like when I changed Oak over to paint may like that I changed paint over to "Wood". I am proud of the transformation, I have been asked to do this for others and it looks better in person.
How did I do it? I primed them with Zinzer 1 2 3, then I put a top coat of a tan or any color brown will do semi gloss on satin latex paint. Then I used Faux Effects stain and seal. I put one coat on and then on the 2nd coat, it added in some copper Martha Stewart craft paint to give light and grain effects on the darker stain. I followed the natural grain lines to make it look real. I finished with a satin top coat.
