Paint Kitchen Cabinets To Look Like Wood

I completed a project in which I painted some off white kitchen cabinets to look like a dark wood grain.  This first picture shows the competed job.  I just painted the island in the center of the kichen.  This island has 6 doors and 6 drawers on the front side and 2 more tall slim doors on the backside.

The rest of the kitchen cabinets are an off white with pinstripes.  Here is a picture of a door on the island before I started to create the wood grain look.


Here is a picture of a door once I finished creating the wood grain look.

Here is a nice closeup of how the wood grain came out on one of the doors.  Really looks good.

 Painting white kitchen cabinets to look like wood is one of the biggest type projects I take on.  It takes me a long time create this look but just like with this island the effort pays off.
