Need help quick! Question about your painted/glazed cabinets

posted by: fairytalebaby on 07.22.2008 at 07:52 am in Kitchens Forum

Our custom cabinets are painted SW Ivoire and glazed. I love the way they look and feel (for the most part) but there's one thing that's bugging me and I'm wondering if it was a mistake?

Are the cabinet frames supposed to be just painted with a brush.........or are they supposed to be glazed as well so that the finish matches the doors? Am I making any sense?
Let me see if I can show you a picture of my doors currently. The cab guy is coming today to touch up some things and I hate to ask him to do "more" if it's not normally done this way...but my doors have this great "pearlized" finish...and my frames look like a different paint color entirely. It looks like I just had my cabinets refaced--but they're brand new.

Can you tell the difference in my frame/door paint? Should you be able to tell? Am I being way too picky?

Here's how it would look without ceiling height.

Your cabinets are beautiful but I do think the frame should have the same treatment as your doors. From the picture it looks like there is a difference between the two. I'm inserting a picture of my recently installed glazed cabinets just so you can see that mine look all the same.

Wondering about burying a vent in ceiling height cabinets.
