Kitchen Cabinets with Liming Wax

$15.99/jar or 34.99/Q
The easiest part refacing outdated cabinets is the painting...when you're using One Step Paint. With sanding and priming out of the picture (whew!), the hardest part is deciding on the look - especially if your significant other wants to weigh in. Try a compromise. A rich base color and a treatment of Liming Wax meets both traditional and modern tastes. The final effect can walk the line between antique whitewash and modern industrial.
