Welcome to our community SEHarris!


Thank you for your question!


Before you begin your project, make sure to wipe down the cabinets with a damp cloth to get off any dirt or dust that may be on there. 


Next you are going to want to expose some of the wood around the edges and corners. You will do this by using 80 grit sandpaper. This will give you cabinets a worn look.


Then you will want to use a brown glaze. We sell one by Rust-Oleum that will work well for you. :) Apply the glaze with a lint free cloth. Once it is applied, and before it dries, wipe off some of the glaze with a clean part of the rag. Do this until you have the look that you desire. 


Lastly, apply a water based polyurethane over the cabinets and you're done!


If you have any more questions, please let us know!


Christine :)
