Caromal Colours Off White  RECLAIM

Layer 1 – Use chip brush and coat any detailed areas

Then use the whiz roller (included in the kit) to roll the rest of the door.  I rolled my paint onto a plate because I didn’t want to dirty a tray for one door

let dry.

Apply Layer 2 (just repeat process) if needed:

Look at the difference already –

Completed door, 2 coats, drying.   If you don’t plan on glazing your cabinets then you are done.  No sanding.  No sealing.  Follow the instructions on dry/cure time.

Glazing / Antiquing-

WAIT 3 DAYS IF YOU WANT TO GLAZE YOUR CABINETS.   The instructions tell you that.  Read the instructions.  I brushed the glaze into the grooves

Antiquing Glaze

You can brush or roll the glaze.

Wipe the glaze off with a terry rag

Glazing is easy – get it on ,wipe it off.  Don’t rush to glaze – wait the 3 day curing period-   I didn’t and learned the hard way on a few of the doors  –  the glaze won’t wipe as easy and can even start to re-activate  the paint.

  1. Hi there!

    I love this! I have been trying to find a way to redo my cabinets to make them look antiquey white/distressed.. Mine now are simple, just maple with a poly coat. Your site has been so helpful so far!

    My main concern here is the color difference between the off white and the white after the glaze is applied. I do not want to go too dark.. I want them to look aged but not yellowy.. and I do not want bright white cabinets.

    My kitchen walls are painted guacamole green, appliances are white, and so is our backdoor and wood trim (which is in the kitchen). My backsplash is tiled with handmade terracotta tiles, the focal point (above my sink and stove) is blue, green, and yellow (only 4 tiles to make a diamond), most of the backsplash consists of mexican white tile. We are looking into getting new countertops, right now they are just a solid cream/off white color.

    You have some pics of Paula Dean’s cabinets on another page.. if I am trying to get my cabinets about that color, would I be better off to use the off white or the white Reclaim?

    I looked at the other product, country living, but I like the way this Reclaim looks a little better, plus I like the ‘no sanding’.

    I’m so excited about this I want to start tomorrow, lol. 🙂

    Thanks for your time and advice!!

    • Hi Celeste,

      you have the perfect cabinets for the Reclaim paints – maple – which don’t have the grain to fight. of course the Reclaim can go over any surface cabinet, but I’m not a fan of painted looking heavy grain – even though I see it a lot… the Reclaim is as easy as you can get – clean your cabs, roll on 2 coats of paint, let dry several days, roll on glaze, wipe off, done.

      color wise, both the bright white and off white will give you a light looking cabinet. You could get to Paula’s cabinets using either, but you mention antique white and you mention white appliances and tile etc – if it was me i’d probably go with the Bright White – then even if you wanted to wipe more glaze off, and leave most in cracks etc you’d have a brighter cabinet vs the off white which would be creamier.

      Did you see this post of mine? https://fabulousfinishes.wordpress.com/2011/03/16/caromal-colours-reclaim-perfect-except/

      If you are decide to order the reclaim, let me know – I can place it for you…

  3. Hi there!

    Ok I read the above link you sent and I like the off white with the coffee glaze. I do not want the cabinets to appear yellow-ish, like they look with the antique glaze. My kitchen opens into my den, which is painted a mustard yellow. So if the cabinets give a yellow tent I’m afraid it will come out strong in my kitchen. I’m worried about the bright white, because I do not want them to look like the typical white kitchen cabinets, its too bright. My husband and I discussed just painting the cabinets white (before I found your website), and I do not want that look. Mostly because my backsplash is Mexican White, which is like a dingy dirty looking white, almost a cream color, my floor is sandstone tile. I was thinking the off white would give the rest of the kitchen that old worn look. Maybe with the coffee glaze? I’m nervous, because I can’t really see it. I just dont want to mess up. lol 🙂

    Thanks so much for your help!

  4. Patty,

    I have a few more questions..

    I have 24 cabnets. How much Reclaim and glaze do you think I will need?

    I apologize for have so many questions. I’m new to all this. 🙂 I know I’m going to love this product, I just want to be sure I get the right color. 🙂

    I also need to do something to my kitchen table. Its has a walnut finish on it, but the top of it has some ugly spots. So I was thinking of either doing the entire table in the same color as the cabinets… or if thats too much then I was thinking maybe the peppercorn with brown glaze.. I like the black. And I may only do the top, and keep the legs and chairs the walnut. What do you think? Its a rectangular table.

    I apprecaite your help!!

    • I’d say you’d need 2-3 quarts of Reclaim – and probably 1-2 quarts of glaze – maybe only 1….

      as far as your table goes, I’d change it up a little – I like the idea of leaving the legs different from the top – black (peppercorn) is a classic and will go with anything – you could distress it, and let some of your walnut come through on the edges- the glaze wont do much over the dark colors – the toner would do more – but you almost wouldnt even have to glaze it – use the textured basecoat peppercorn, add some water to it to thin it down some- brush it out, sand a little bit (a little more on your edges to reveal walnut) – at this point it wll be chalky looking and you’ll start to freak out, thinking you messed it up – but no worry – once you apply your topcoat you’ll breathe the life back into it.

  5. Ok, I pulled up your page for the Bright White Reclaim, and I think you’re right. The more I look at the off white the more I feel like it has a slightly yellow tent to it, so I’m thinking the bright white would be best. And once I get the glaze on it, it shouldn’t be as white.

    Now I just have to decide on the glaze. I like how that coffee glaze looks. Its a little darker than the antique glaze. Sorry to be so wishy-washy. 😛

  6. Yay, I’m so excited. I’ll talk to my husband some more about it and I’ll let you know! Thanks so much!!! 🙂

  7. Hey Patty,

    I sent an email to your gmail account earlier this week for an order. I just wanted to be sure you got it. Or if there is anything else I need to do.

    Thanks so much!

    Celeste

    • gosh Im so glad you sent this, Celeste, I never got it – I bet its in my spam – gmail likes to send alot there – I’ll go look and get this going for you right now. Sorry about that! Patty

  8. I found it and will forward you a followup – maybe it was the line ‘tool kit’! 🙂

    talk soon!

  10. I was wondering if I only want the coffee glaze on the edges in the groves if I can do that without doing the whole door? I think I am wanting a cleaner look?
    Also how long does it take to get?
    Appreciate it. Do you have a Red to do my island? I was thinking that since I have Uba Tuba Granite.

    • Hi Lisa, sorry for the delay – I was out of town last week and though I had grand intentions to be responding to all, I failed miserably!

      If you use the coffee (or tea) (or Reclaim Antiquing) glaze on the white or off white paint, you will obtain a clean look – the glazes are very translucent and don’t bite into the painted surface much when you wipe it off w/a rag. It mainly stays tucked in the details of your furniture/cabinets, and though it does soften the complete paint finish it isnt as antiqued looking as the Toner would give you. If you’re wanting your finish to remain mostly offwhite or mostly white, then use a damp rag when wiping off the glaze and this will remove even more of it, but still alllow it to remain in the cracks/crevices.

      I dont advise trying to ‘paint’ on the glaze into specific narrow areas – its not that easy, and to me can look sloppy when you’re done. if you had a specific groove, however – like in a bead board, and wanted to just hit the inner grooves, then that is easy enough because it offers a TRACK for your brush to park in and move through….

      • woops – hit go too quickly…

        how long does it take? well, depends where you live – all products are shipped out of their warehouse in east PA – the Reclaim and rest of the CC line products (coffee glaze) come out of same place. I can order everything for you and provided you get it in before mid-day its a good chance that it will ship out same day – pricing is all the same, and I can apply my coupon code for and extra 2 or 5 off…

        the 2 reds that are out are only in the Textured Basecoat line – no red in the Reclaim line. There is Paprika which is more like a browner red (barn red) and Candy Apple Red which is a redder red – very much like a candy apple. I think Candy Apple is backordered at this moment…..

  11. also HSN does not have the gallons of Off white should I go with the smaller ones?

    • I can call in your order – if they dont have gallons I can get the owner to ship out 4 quarts for the same price – are you still considering coffee glaze? if so, you wouldnt be able to order that from HSN anyhow – only Reclaim line is offered on HSN – so you’d have to create 2 orders. Email me what you want and I’ll get it all ordered for you – pattyhenning @ wowway.com
