After painting the doors, I decided to try a little antiquing.  Wipe on, wipe off FAST, and hope you got all the crevices highlighted. Messy, very messy.

It turned out a bit darker than I would like, and I once again made the mistake of thinking, 'oh, it looks good, but this little spot right here could be better, I should . . ." NO.  I should not.  Let it be.  Don't overwork it.  Too late for some pieces, but that's the nice thing about antiquing.  You can forgive a lot.

Right now I'm waiting for the glaze to dry, and then I get to add a gloss sealant.  Then I glue the doors in place.  In the meantime I should start building that microwave and making a decision about the drawer pulls.
