Crackle finished paint jobs are not professional looking at all! All the advertising in the world will not help change my mind on this topic.  This might appeal to some but I am sure the vast majority do not want a kitchen to look 200 years old and in need of drastic replacement just because of a stupid paint job.

Crackle finishes and paint jobs such as this are so "over"---very dated and tired looking.
You can almost smell mothballs and old woolen coats----

We just refinished our cabinets a few months ago. The entire process is extremely time consuming and not as easy as they make it look. We painted our cabinets with a sprayer which made it a little easier and also helped to apply the paint more evenly, but you have to wait to paint each side which means you have to have plenty of room to let them dry.  Usually the drying time takes at least a week, otherwise the doors will stick to whatever surface they are on, and there goes your paint job! Also any fine dust particles or loose hairs will automatically find their way onto the wet paint, so you really have to clean your house top to bottom and get all of the sanding dust up with a vacuum or shop vac. In the end it was worth it... it think. But just know what you are getting into. Also prepare a lot of space for wet cabinet doors to dry and re-dry.

Yuk! I think it looks worse! Crackle paint, in my opinion, is not aesthetically appealing in an area where germs and bacteria could get into. It may seem ever harder to keep clean!
