Gladstone Cabinet Refinish

Gladstone Cabinet Refinish

This set of cabinets were just 5 years old before they showed lots of where around the edges of the doors and the shelving.  This wear is typical in a bathroom that has a shower and is a result of water penetration from the steam of the daily shower(s). A very good solution to this problem is to re-apply or “re-shoot” the lacquer or varnish with a vinyl sealer and hardened lacquer, aka varnish. Today’s sealers and lacquers have come a long way in the way they perform in moist environments.  They also resist “yellowing” for long periods of time.  This characteristic makes the finish stay “clear” or transparent for decades. The result from this project is a longer life for the cabinets as well as the finish.  The finish is also hardened.  Making these cabinets vary durable to everyday use.

Leawood Interior Cabinet Glaze

Leawood Interior Cabinet Glaze

  This project was fun!  An existing house with extensive renovations.  The kitchen is almost always a good start for making a house look and feel new. The existing cabinets where painted a solid dark crimson that went well decades ago.  The general contractor, Creative Restorations led by Tony Pagel, hired us to paint this custom cabinet glaze. As you can see in the before pictures, the cabinets needed better amenities as well as some better lighting.  A custom light bar at the top was crafted and installed as well as a more modern hood and granite counter tops. The cabinet changes required and mixture of new and old cabinetry.  In order to make everything uniform and fit, we had to use bonding primers and and a pigmented shellac to kill all colors as well as create and smooth uniform surface.  Once the primer was sanded smooth an oil-based semi-gloss enamel was applied using a spraying method.  This gives the homeowner a more durable and lasting finish that will have a brilliant natural patina as the cabinets age. The Antique glaze was then applied only in crevices and cornices in order to achieve that old world look. The project included many other painting including walls trim and ceilings and had a duration over a little over two weeks.
