Great idea for stock cabinets: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White with Dark Walnut Glaze and wax. Builder grade, oak, bathroom vanity remodeling for master bath. I love Annie Sloane Chalk Paint.and the waxes.makes for awesome refinishing.
Paint Paris Gray over gold frames and let them dry really Well. Sand them with a wet rag and then Use a coat of clear wax and then a coat of dark wax. Take an old t shirt and dab some clear wax on it, rub over the dark wax, taking off all the excess.
