RE: Need help with staining/glazing (Follow-Up #5)

You can get that dark shading effect with General Finishes gel stain in the Java color. In the factory this may have actually been done with an airbrush. You stain the piece with the background golden/amber color, seal with a thin coat of shellac, and apply the Java color with a drybrush in the crevices and at edges if you're following that photo.
Then the edge of color has to be blended by wiping very carefully. You may need to remove areas that shouldn't have received any stain; wipe off with a rag with a small amount of paint thinner. If you want to start over, wipe the whole glaze off with the same cloth. After the thinner has evaporated you can start over. Once the glaze is to your liking you can apply the finish. I would use a wipe-on varnish like Bartley's gel varnish. It has the benefit of being rapid-drying, low luster, and not prone to dust specks.

sheesharee, you need to let the first coat of sealer dry completely before you apply the glaze. The glaze is only in the crevices and detailed part of the cabinet and is a thin line applied with a thin brush, not much to really wipe away. It is not where glaze is applied over the entire cabinet and then wiped off. Once the black glaze is dry, then you apply the final coat of sealer. I believe this technique is called pencil glazing.

My kitchen cabinets have this look and I love it. I know the process, our cabinet maker first stained the cabinets, then applied a seal and then applied the black glaze just in the crevises with a fine brush, wiped away the access and then sealed again with a final coat. As to what specific products he used, that I cant help you with.

Just saw this on HGTV earlier this evening. (Don't know what show is was because I seldom watch that channel anymore and was surfing during a commercial so only caught this part.)Young couple was renovating an old farm house and trying to keep things true to nature of the structure. She had put up a stationery valance and wanted it to look like it was attached on projected knobs, but with buttons covered in the fabric. Easy and creative solution she came up with: the 'knobs' were white ceramic door stops with the rubber tips. She had a row of about 10 or so (it was a wide double window), and she secured the valance top to it by simply taking a rubber band and wrapping the fabric around the rubber tip of each door stop, with a slight drop/scallop in fabric between each door stop. It looked great and really did look like fabric covered buttons!

I have valances hung from knobs. I fashioned the "hangers" out of old glass doorknobs from my childhood home, dowels and small bullseye corner blocks from home depot. Here is a picture of the valance:

and here is a closeup of the knob hanger:

If you don't come up with something you like better and want to make something that looks like these I can post directions for you.

Sorry I took so long getting back to this thread.

Here is how I made mine.

I bought a bunch of the small square bullseyes for a backer plate (matches the window trim) and some wood dowel (I BELIEVE 5/16", it was the largest the doorknob would fit on).

I also used 3 drill bits, one that was a 1/2" "paddle" type, one that was a regular 5/16" bit and one that was matched to the shank size of a drywall screw.

I took my bullseye blocks and first took the large drill bit and used that to shave off the "bump" in the middle of the bullseye. If I didn't do that first, the drill bit would tend to slip off center.

Then I took my 5/16" bit (just match it to the dowel size if you use a different size dowel) and drilled about 3/4 of the way through the center of the bullseye. Once I did one carefully I used painters tape on the bit to mark how deep I needed to go for the rest.

Last I took my smallest bit and drilled the rest of the way through. Then I cut my dowels to size, painted the blocks and screwed them to the wall with drywall screws (went right into the window header so no anchors needed). Then I stuck the dowels into the holes (if you match drill bit size with dowel size they will fit tight, no glue required, and you can get them out later) and then slipped the knobs over the dowels and used the set screw to tighten them down.

That's it! It took me some trial and error to figure out the best way to drill the blocks but I like how it looks.

Yes, the valance was made from a pattern. McCalls M4407.
