Anything Pretty

But when you really think about it, oak cabinetry is usually made of high quality wood that shouldn't be tossed aside so easily. So what if you could use what you have already and reglaze those oak cabinets? Find out more beyond the jump.

A little elbow grease and sanding took the existing finish off. Then a mixture of 4 parts glaze to 1 part paint topped off with 3 thin layers of polyurethane to protect the finish but minimize the shine completed the transformation.
