Rustic Custom Cabinet Project in Wisconsin

Friday, September 18, 2020

This past summer, Lakeside Painting completed a cabinet painting project for custom build. In the slideshow below, you can see the evolution from fresh build to finished coating, and then placement inside the home as the customer's entertainment center.

For this project, the custom cabinet was made to our customer's specifications. They wanted it built of rustic, rough-sawed pine. The challenge was to give the cabinet a finish that accentuated the rustic pine grain without robbing it of its uniqueness.

First, we sanded and prepared the cabinet for a base coat. After applying a base coat of rust red color, we applied an intermediate coat of a dark brownstone, which has a blackish hue.

After letting the top coat try, we sanded through the finish to expose bits and pieces of the underlying rust red coat. This process gave it that rustic or "aged" effect. We followed this up with some clear coat—specifically, two coats of a satin conversion varnish. The clear coat brought the finish together in a very nice way, but also imparted durability to the coating.

Our customer loved the results, and we did, too!

If you want to give your cabinets and/or entertainment center a rustic or vintage look, get in touch with Lakeside Painting at 262-642-9445 or at info@lakesidepainting.com.
