This product is great when you don't want to replace your cabinets. It has an easy to follow dvd and all the materials in the box. I love it! It didn't take as long as I thought it would refinishing and they look wonderful! This is great when your kitchen needs a "face lift" without spending thousands!

Perfect way to revitalize old cabinets!

Comments about Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations:

We remodeled our kitchen in 2011 with a very small budget. One of our ways to cut corners was by using one of these Transformation kits. It ended up being a little tedious, but the end result is AMAZING. We worked on the cabinets in the evenings after work and the kids were in bed, so it took about two weeks of casual application. If we would have had a weekend to do it, it would have been done faster. But the great thing about this kit is that you can go as fast or as slow as you have time for. The trickiest part was applying the decorative stain after painting them. It was hard to get an even look and some of it ran and left drips. And some doors look darker than others, but I think I'm the only one who notices! Our cabinets aren't real wood, but that didn't seem to be a problem. After two years, the cabinets have held up extremely well. There's one spot where the finish is scratched from repeated grabbing of the knob. Everything is easy to keep clean!

Simple to use, may need extra coat for solid wood cabinets

By 

from Groton, CT

Comments about Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations:

We have half way through a kitchen project using Cabinet Transformations. We have solid wood cabinets from the 1950s and needed to lighten up the kitchen. We chose Fog White and are not using the decorative glaze because we wanted the very light color. The deglazer worked very well, although we did sand portions where the old strap hinges covered the cabinet. We used 3 coats of the color instead of 2 as some wood sap began to bleed through, leaving a yellow tinge. It covers well, and seems to be adhering to the wood very well. Much less work that our previous work painting paneling in various sections of the house. An inexpensive way to have the feel of a new kitchen remodel. We highly recommend it. Now to see if their counter top kit is as good. I am tired of the bright red counter top!!
UPDATE: We have finished the kitchen. Here is what I have noticed. Being paint, it can chip. Tops of one drawer needs some touch-up. (I better keep some of the paint close at hand). It does clean up very nice and being a lighter color, I can actually see the dirt and wipe it down. Overall, other than some mild bleed-through (when you put the protective coat on) and some chipping from use, I am happy with the changes.

Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations is an awesome product

By 

from Plainfield, IL

Comments about Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations:

I highly recommend this product. My husband and I took this on as we were tired of looking at our outdated and faded kitchen cabinets.

We bought 3 small kits as we could not find the large kit any where to do our kitchen cabinets which consisted of 21 doors.

Easy, easy, easy to use.

wash, dry, degloss, dry, apply first color coat (bond coat,) dry, apply second color coat, dry, deglaze if you choose to, dry (repeat with opposite side.) Finally apply protective top coat and dry. You have to do both side of the cabinet doors - twice with the bond coat, once with the glaze and the top coat.

I do believe that it takes longer than expected because of the drying time. However, after doing this over 4 days, my husband and I thought that IF we wanted to we could have completed it sooner by just starting with the cabinet frames and while drying do the doors and just volley between the two during drying periods.

Everything you need is in the kit. I recommend buying two extra scrub pads for the deglossing. We did not use the glaze, but I heard some people complain that there is not enough.

We used the Tudor color with no glaze and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful! Even our painter could not believe we did it ourselves.

Time consuming but so worth it.
