Kitchen Cabinet Faux Glaze Question

Posted by phiphi187 (My Page) on

I am new to the forum and wondered if anyone can help me with a current kitchen project I'd like to complete?

Right now I have light oak cabinets (kinda like honey oak)
I'd like to do a vanilla color with a chocolate glaze.

I bought some primer and paint (satin) had some glaze mixed with a dark brown color and tried a trial run on a scrap door.

Not sure what I did wrong but it seems very matte to me, I'd like a sheen on the door for durability so I am wondering should I go with different products or another method to complete it?

Please recommend and guide me in the process, this is my first time and I'd like to do a good job :)

Glazes have sheens too and when you use the glaze on top of the paint, it can change the final sheen. Check your glaze to see what it says about sheen.
