Karen contacted me last month about the new Caromal Colour’s ReClaim line of paints
She was very interested in using the paints on her kitchen oak cabinet re-do, but wanted to SEE the samples first. Luckily, she lived 20 minutes from me so we scheduled a date to meet.
Karen came prepared – LOVE IT! She brought swatches of her granite and backsplash tile –
The Reclaim Off-White sample door, unglazed, was a perfect color to start with (above, under the granite) but I didn’t like the color of the cabinet when the Reclaim Antique Glaze was applied – it was too yellow (see bottom strip of cabinet door above) next to her backsplash.
I told her to hold on a moment and ran off to grab my Caromal Colour’s Coffee Stain Glaze which is more of a dark brown glaze finish. I taped off another smaller section of the door and applied the coffee glaze with a brush, then wiped it off like I would wipe a table dusting-
Much better, perfect in fact! Another nice thing about Caromal Colours products – you can cross over lines and the products still work. Karen loved it and ordered a gallon of Off-White Reclaim and a quart of Coffee Glaze.
Hopefully she’ll send me photos when she is done – befores and afters would be awesome! Remember, if you glaze over the ReClaim paints, you need to first wait a good three days for the finish to dry thoroughly.
