After it is sanded, primed, and painted
My sister in law who also painted & glazed her golden oak cabinets said the glazing was her easiest step. She wanted a heavier glazed look than I do, so I spend alot of time removing glaze being careful to not remove it all. The tools I use for this are paper towels, sponge brush, water, and a tiny paint brush.
It's very subtle like I said, but I like it! Now, gotta go work on some more cabinet doors. Hubby installed crown molding this weekend...I'll show you it tomorrow.
I am so happy to see that golden oak leave! Our house was full of golden oak and little by little it is going bye bye! I hope it never goes back in style!! I'll rebel if it does!
