Tape off the Cabinets and Put on Coating
Begin by taping off the glass front cabinets and coating the entire wall unit in a warm caramel color. The traditional decorative finish called frottage will give the unit an older, more masculine feel.
Sand, brush and tack the entire wall unit.
Cut and roll on tinted primer 1580 Intrigue (Image 1). Let dry completely. Roll and/or brush 469 Backwoods with glaze on a section of the shelf.
Crumple sheets of newspaper and brush them with a deep forest green glaze. Press into the glaze gently, then rub the newspaper on the surface (Image 2), pushing the glaze onto the unit and pulling back to reveal an irregular mottled texture. Let dry completely.
