A popular painting technique used to refurbish antique furnishings would be antique washing, also known as distressing. This technique are usually used on vintage pieces, giving it a more casual, rustic feel, while accentuating the classic features and natural imperfections of the piece. This old English style kitchen has well preserved Oak kitchen cabinets, but since the space is already full of wood finishes (both floor and ceiling has wood), antique washing the kitchen island was a great refurbishing decision as it helps break the heavy monotony of wood on wood.
Natural solid wood is the primary material for Mission style kitchen cabinets. Oak or American white oak being the most popular species used. Cherry is another durable option and looks exquisite in Mission style design because their rich natural color is showcased more. This type of kitchen cabinet styles are also often left in their natural, unfinished state. They are never treated with an opaque paint, but can be stained to enhance the richness of its undertones. Warm colors and deep hues are popular wood stain colors for the Mission style kitchen cabinet.
