Antique kitchen cabinets give your kitchen a distinctive look and this is what sets it apart from others. There is no dearth of styles, when it comes to decorating your kitchen with antique kitchen cabinets.

There are basically two procedures of adding antiquity, namely, staining and distressing.

Well, its upto whether you want to use a single method or use a combination of both, to make your kitchen appear fascinating. The method of staining works well in case of cabinets that have a light paint color. All that is required is a dark stain, plenty of paper towels and brush. Apply a single layer of the stain on the portion that you want to paint and then wipe it off as per your wish. Repeat the activity till it reaches your satisfaction level. For the natural look, stain more on the edges and handles of the cabinet.

Another popular way of giving your kitchen cabinet a traditional look consists of distressing. The method is apt for the painted cabinets.

Take a medium grit paper and rub off the finish on the door and the edges of the drawer and your antique style kitchen cabinet is ready to adorn your kitchen.
