Mr. Pinball Tip:

To achieve the authentic speckle finish on your cabinet, over the basecoat, but before stenciling, use thinned grey, red, blue, or whatever color of paint is appropriate, and an old toothbrush. Dip the toothbrush in the thinned paint and hold about a foot from the cabinet surface. Scrape your fingernail across the surface of the brush. Doing this will create a random pattern of various sized speckles on the cabinet and almost anything else nearby. Repeat until you get a nice even scattering all around the cabinet.
