How to Paint a Classic Cabinet

The goal was a warm gray, we didn’t want to go to dark, so I mixed a bit of Burlap into the Hurricane Gray, roughly a 3:1 mix, but in poor habit, I always just eyeball custom mixes. 

One coat gave great coverage, no traces of the blue undercoat whatsoever. The second coat gave a smooth and polished finish.

I always wax under glaze to keep the paint from absorbing it, and again over the top to protect the glaze.

I let the stain dry over night and then gave it several light coats of gator hide with a brush and light sanding in between.
