Brush Finish Application Process:

Variations in brush stroke intensity, direction or overlap from piece to piece are common and should be expected. The brushed application is designed to give depth and movement to the base color. The brushed finish will be applied onto the base paint finish color in a directional brush stroke to the wood grain. The finished look can appear as an aged, weathered appearance to a more modern, contemporary look. Brush Finish will be applied to all painted surfaces, except the back of door and drawer fronts. Brush marks/strokes and amount of color will vary based on areas of the wood and the door and the selection of the wood species. Tonal variations and varied brush strokes should be seen and expected as a benefit of this finish process. Cabinet components that will include this technique: the front of cabinet doors and drawer fronts, face frames, decorative mouldings, wood accessories, finished ends and finished interior options. (Please see illustration on the right for direction of strokes when applied to the face frame, drawer front and sections of the door.)

Disclaimer:

Due to the unique nature of Brush Finish, Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. does not guarantee that any two jobs or any two doors will look exactly alike. This variability should be explained so customers understand their kitchen will vary in appearance from your showroom display or door sample in the overall color tone, the amount of wiping, patterns and the amount of hang up and coverage. This technique should only be selected after viewing a Sample Front Kit (SFK) in the door style, species and color the customer will be ordering. Variances in this finish process are common and will not be considered a reason for product replacement or warranty
