INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Use the jars to save the paint colors you mix in step 2.

  1. Wipe off the cabinet with a damp clean cloth.
  2. Mix three custom colors: Army Green is made with 5:1 Enchanted to Rustic. Plum is made with 1:2:2 Relic to Romance to Legacy. Medium Grey is made with 1:3 Relic to Primitive. (Be sure to mix a lot of Plum and save it.)
  3. Paint the entire cabinet, knobs and all, with Plum mix with the 1" flat brush.
  4. With the 1/2" flat brush, paint the areas that are Medium Grey with Relic/Primitive mix. (Refer to photo for color placement.)
  5. Paint the trim areas with Army Green mix using the 1/2" flat brush.
  6. Using a pencil and tracing and transfer papers, transfer the flower pattern to the cabinet doors.
  7. Use the three color mixes and the #3 round brush to fill in the flowers. For the lighter plum, mix 1:1 Plum mix to Everlasting on the palette or plastic plate. Use this mix to fill in the lighter plum areas.
