    Thanks, to answer your question: we've done it both ways. You can certainly do just a painted perimeter - your moldings will still look great but won't "pop" as much, it will create a cleaner look along the walls and make your island stand out as an accent more. If you like the way the glaze makes the detail on the moldings stand out then try doing a brighter, cleaner white paint and glaze over it, the glaze will dull the paint slightly and you may achieve the same color you're looking for.

    I would suggest asking your designer or cabinet manufacturer to get a small piece of the molding you plan on using and have them try finishing it both ways. It may cost you a bit extra, but it's worth it because you'll be able to make an informed decision - you don't want to have your kitchen done and then look at it and wonder "what if?"!!

    This is what we do for our clients so they can see it both ways and sign the sample they are happy with. Hope that helps!
