Distressed Kitchen Cabinets
Distressed kitchen cabinets are far from a damsel in distress. This style can be simply worn or truly beat up with a rustic finish adding depth and character to any kitchen.
Distressed Furniture is far from a damsel in distress and has been gaining popularity over the past few years. The technique used in creating distressed wood is not as difficult as it actually sound! The only thing that we need in doing such projects is patience and commitment to a well-organized plan. Plus, the aged look of distressed wood adds a modern elegance to any kitchen design.
Whether it’s simply worn or truly beat up, this rustic finish is made up of layered colors and spattered dark paint (to mimic fly specks). When the paint is dry, you can “distress” the finish by hitting it with a chain and lightly sanding in the spots where cabinets get the most use to reveal the colors underneath. Just remember that the base color will only partially seep through the overcoat and if you want your distressed cabinets to match your kitchen motif, all you have to do is choose colors that will blend well with it.

How To: Distressed kitchen cabinets finish for your beach home…..
If it is beach weather, it is time for you to be at your beach home. If like me, a beach home is but a pipe-dream and yearn for that perfect beach home feeling, there is an alternative way to achieve this. Using distressed kitchen cabinets, one can incorporate the beach and coastal feel with some elbow grease. Pieces that looks weathered as though they were beaten down by ocean winds and salt spray!
Clean down your cabinets thoroughly with warm soapy water and let them air dry before moving on. Prepare around your cabinets as well by covering your work surfaces and floors with appropriate protective materials. Sand down the cabinets focusing in particular around the corners by some premium sandpaper or a machine sander.
Now for the fun part – Choose a base color and apply this to the cabinet. You may need to prepare the cabinet with a primer depending on what sort of final effect you desire. You could of course use bare wood instead of base coating. Once your base coat has dried, you can then apply your secondary color. When painting the second color, paint some areas lightly and some heavily to give you an uneven surface finish.
In using differing shades of color, such as blues and greens you can provide depth to your piece. For a varied effect, distress the piece with different grades of sand paper. You might also want to beat up your furniture! Well, hammering it softly that is. In any case, make sure that the natural wood shows through here and there.
When you have finished painting and it has all dried, grab some sandpaper and roughen up the outer paints to achieve a final finish. Wipe down with a clean cloth to buff up the finish and achieve a beautiful finish.
Voila! You will have a beach house finish without finding sand in every crevice.
