Customer Questions & Answers

If I want to tint it. What type of paint is used?

Asked by: Robert
Honey, maybe what you can do is use the Cabinet Rescue for a primer, then choose something like Rustoleum in black for a top coat. It might be worth experimenting with a little can and a scrap of melamine shelving.

Can this go directly on laminate cabinets or do they have to be sanded?

Asked by: Jessie
I still suggest 1) wipe with TSP, and 2 )sand it with 200 or 300 grit sand paper

where can I buy this product locally?

According to your website, all the Home Depots around me in Southern California do not carry this product. Thus, where can I buy it?
Asked by: Renice
It is available in Home Depots in Florida. I looked for it in Massachusetts, but couldn't find it. Manufacturer (Decotime) is based in FL.

Waiting to just give my white laminate a new sheen /gloss would you recommend this ?

I really don't want them to look "painted" if that makes sense
Asked by: angie
I can only speak about my experience in using this product to paint my cabinets. It has levelers that leave a very very smooth finish. They don't look "painted". There is a bit of a learning curve with this product though. I worked in smaller areas and don't go back over it. Make sure the area is CLEAN. I did use a primer with this paint and found that it will chip if you're not careful in the first few days or so. After that though it's very very durable. I've have had this paint on my cabinets for almost a year and it's held up great. You'll also find that a little goes a long way. I painted a bathroom vanity and 3 kitchen cabinets and still have about a half a can left. I would highly recommend this product. While it's a bit more difficult to get used to, it's well worth the effort.

31 oz. Melamine Laminate Finish Paint is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.

With light gray paint and white trim everywhere, I no longer felt like the orangey cabinets that the house came with fit our decor. Be sure you thoroughly prepare your cabinet before painting it. After removing the doors from the piece, I used my Ryobi sander to sand down the cabinet doors out in the garage. I then went back inside to sand the frame of the cabinet. Next i used a wet cloth to remove the dust and then went over everything with a dry cloth to be sure they were all dust free. Next came the primer. I would say don't use too much primer on this step as you will end up with drip marks and then you will have to go back and sand the area again. Our cabinets were not dark so I used only one coat of primer. Once the primer was dry, I painted on 2 coats of Cabinet Rescue, let everything dry a few hours and then reinstalled the cabinet doors. I also added 2 adorable anchor hooks to complete the look. I am extremely happy with how it all turned out! As with the primer, paint Cabinet Rescue on your cabinets in very thin/light coats to prevent dripping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint This has to be the most effective paint I have ever used !! Use a small 4 to 5 inch foam roller and your cabinets will look amazing !! I can only say that I am super impressed! I was going to go through sanding and priming and the whole 9 yards for my laminate builder grade cabinets, BUT I decided to ask if that was an appropriate idea to a Home Depot staff memberFIRST. Well, he walked me directly to this product. I have to admit I was quite leery , however, I am 100% satisfied !! Well worth the price and a little goes a long way !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product I used this on my 30 year old laminate kitchen: 2 coats (3 on avocado panels). Very easy to work with; I only lightly sanded the surface first. Is on the thin side, so make sure you use a high density roller and good brush, and don't overload to avoid drips. This really isn't a huge issue, but makes the project easier. I did my entire kitchen, quite large, including frame plus under 2 bathroom vanities. If I had paid someone $$$ I would be very happy; as it is, I spent $18 for a new kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint! I was going to redo my kitchen cabinets with another product until I read the recommendacions por this one. This product is excellent! My cabinets came out looking like new. It is easy to apply, to clean out, and dries fast. It gives a satin finish with no roller marks. I used the recommended roller; it was worth the $$. I lightly sanded my cabinets, cleaned them with TSP, rinse with a damp cloth, and I was ready to paint as soon as they dried. I gave the cabinets two coats of paint. Very happy with the end result.

I have been completely frustrated with this product and haven't even had a chance to use it yet. Here are my concerns: although many hardware stores advertised this produce on line, the reality is that none actually carried the item I had to order straight from Decotime at more than three times the cost advertised by the stores. The Decotime website says this is a bright white paint. It is not; there is a lot of gray in it. Decotime also claims you can take Cabinet Rescue to any hardware store for tinting. Also not true. I went to several and was told each time that since they didn't carry the product, they weren't able to tint my out-of-store purchase. They simply didn't have the correct tinting code for this paint. I finally found a store willing to give it their best shot. It took three tries; the first quart was ruined and the second seems to match the color swatch. Finally, I tried to track the company down. One website said the store was closed permanently, which may be why the company has not yet responded to my pleas for help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prep is key I used this on builder grade wood cabinets. The key, as with any painting is prep. I used a deglosser then wiped the cabinets down afterwards. The deglosser says it's not necessary but I found it was with this paint. If it's possible to use a foam roller that is best I found. I used a small paint brush to get into the detail work and then rolled larger areas. You have to be quick with this paint. DO NOT go back over any areas or you'll have a mess. I've used this paint in the bath and kitchen. Both times it required 3 coats to look good. I let things dry for at least 24 hours before closing doors and drawers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to try this I was scared off by the price, but someone in Home Depot told me it was a "must try". I have been doing kitchen cupboard painting and cabinets for many years. This is by far the best product I have ever used and will NEVER again use a different product. This can be tinted to any color you want. It also goes directly onto slippery surfaces with no prep work. Made my cheap bathroom formica cabinets look fantastic!
