My father in law has a nice airless I guess I could borrow. I just need to figure out if I want a solid color or the antiqued look.

The link that Schmidt put a few posts back have some picks of a cabinet job I did using that method. The customer had a son that worked at the box store and was adamant about using it, so I did. Job came out good. I will post some more pics when I get home.

How would you compare that finish to paint? Would it be worth it for a guy who is not the best at painting to spend the money on a product like that? How does it look close up?

I think I could of achieved the same results with paint and a faux glaze with clear on top but it worked out well. How many doors are you doing? I did 2 bath frames, kitchen frames and 41 doors and 15 drawers with it for a total of 37 man hours. I think if you prep well you should be alright but just painting might be easier of course you want to prep just as well either way. The glaze is a must other wise it looks like a poor paint job. I followed specs to the t except for I put two coats of clear instead of one. Here is a close up of a door.

I have about half of what you did to do. I am just so far up in the air on what I want. I want it nice and only want to do it once. I don't mind taking time to get it right. My original plan was to sand and stain but half of these cheap cabinets are not real wood. I like the white look so I may just stick with that. Decisions.

The g/f's kitchen is old, walnut cabinets and she just installed beautiful new granite. I am also thinking about painting them white to really make the granite shine.

I am doing black Granite counter tops. 12 x 12's like we used to do before slabs came out. Also have all black appliances. I think white will look pretty good.
