I want to make cabinets look similar to this.
You are going to have to prep the cabinets by cleaning, degreasing and sanding. Get a paint sprayer and spray a Primer on it. When dry, paint with color of your choice. There is a special comb tool to make the cabinets look like that. You can buy it at the hardware store or paint store
What kind of cupboards are you starting with?
Oak I believe. They are the basic cabinets from Menards.
Hi! check out General Finishes Grey gel stain! With gel stains you do not have to sand. :)
Hi Patty! Yes you sure can! That is one of the awesome things about Gel Stain. I'll link you to a video by General Finishes that shows them applying gel stain over an existing cabinet finish. :)
You don't mention what your cabinets look like now Victoria. Getting that wood look will take a bit of work because of the grain pattern and the different colors involved. Here's a tutorial that shows you a process that you might want to take on. It's one thing to do just a table top like this person has done but it's a bigger project to try and do an entire set of kitchen cabinets! It can be done but it might take a while!
