The only way I've seen that done is with a technique called dry brush. You basically paint the cabinets and doors the dark brown background color first. Then with a coarse brush with as little paint on it as possible brush the blue top color on. The coarse brush kinda gives it the sanded look as if you tried to sand the blue off and got to the underlying color. Try it out on some scrap wood. It takes a bit of practice to not have too much paint on the brush. It is why it is called dry brush. I would use an oil based enamel to give you more open time with it. If you have a spot where you have the brush too wet you can just wipe it off with a rag with some mineral spirits and do it over. The hard part is getting it uniform over the entire kitchen. It's good to step back from time to time and take a look see.
