DISTRESSED BEAUTY

-

White cabinetry doesn’t have to look plain or nondescrip­t. The aged finish on these cabinets in Heidi Parson’s previous kitchen turns them into a showpiece. Although Heidi worked with a profession­al, you could get a similar look by painting cabinets white, distressin­g edges and random areas to expose the wood underneath, and then applying an antiquing glaze. The best part of working with glaze is that you can start with a small amount for a subtle look and then apply more until you’re satisfied with the finish. Be sure to work plenty of glaze into corners, grooves and surface details to provide necessary contrast.
