Finished traditional cabinets turned out shiny! Help me "matte"
My Cabinets were just hung in my kitchen remodel and they are shiny. Shiny was not at all what I was expecting or wanting. I had them lacquered as a last step to increase durability. I've read that we should do the lacquer to preserve the new finish. It was a large up charge in both money and a lot of additional time. I guess they used the wrong type of lacquer. The cabinets are antiqued and glazed in an old world style; that is , they were before the glaze application.
Does anyone know what might be done, if anything? I am heart sick.
Could an additional coat of matte lacquer be added to tone down the shine? I don't even know if there is such a thing as matte lacquer.
Please help if you can.
