Glazing Your Bathroom Cabinets
Glazing is most often applied to bathroom cabinetry, but it can easily transform bathroom cabinets from ho-hum to antique charm in almost no time at all. There are several ways when it come to glazing your bathroom cabinets. And if you want try it, you can use these ways. Start with remove the handles from your cabinets with a screwdriver. You can also remove the cabinet doors and hinges, although this is not absolutely necessary for glazing. Place the cabinet hardware and screws in the plastic bag. Open the container of glaze. Apply glaze with the foam roller or brush to a small area at a time, moving in one direction. The glaze dries fast, so work in sections. This will prevent the glaze from drying before you can remove it. Wipe away most of the glaze with a clean cloth before it can dry. If your cabinets or cabinet doors have millwork or grooves cut into them, you might want to experiment to see if leaving a bit more glaze in the recessed areas would be desirable.
Use a separate dry cloth to frequently clean your brush as you work on each small section. You don’t want layers of glaze building up on the brush and causing an uneven look. Move on to the next section and repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the other areas of the bathroom cabinets. Allow the glaze to dry completely. Retrieve the plastic bag and reattach the knobs, drawer pulls and other hardware that you removed.
