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.

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.

This product is wonderful. Easy to use. Needed no primer when used on laminate cabinets. Made my old cabinets look new and updated. Very pleased with the results. I used a small 4 inch low nap roller and a foam brush so there were no brush marks. I would absolutely recommend this product!

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.

Cabinet rescue paint is a great product, and well worth the “premium” price. Actually the worst investment you can make is cheap paint. Before I get into the specifics remember surface prep is always at least 50% of a professional paint job. When I finished my kitchen tray ceiling project with bright white led strip lighting in the tray I was surprised to see the factory “plastic ” finish was randomly off-shade for about half of the cabinet doors, and only obvious with the new led lighting. Most likely the result of the complete delivered cabinet ensemble coming from two factory batches, and I was told by a cabinet man the factory surface could not be painted. This paint did the job and the mix of painted and original surfaces can not distinguished unless a very critical eye with a magnifying class is looking for any variation in surface finish. You cant ask for more than that from any paint. Here are a few tips when using this particular paint. Get a color match from existing cabinet door/drawer if matching. The home depot match was spot on, eliminating the need to paint the lighter factory “batch” doors. Remember two thinner coats are always better than one from the can. If any way possible, remove drawers and doors for light sanding and cleaning and paint them lying flat so you can better “flow and feather” the paint with a high quality 2” thin angle sash brush and eliminate runs. A shop mate worktable is perfect here. IMPORTANT: this paint tacks-up really fast so after trying on a small drawer I realized I would have to thin the paint (1oz water initially) to get the proper paint flow. You may have to thin again after the can sets open for a while.
You can handle the finished work after a few hours dry time, but I recommend an over night set before reinstalling doors and drawers. This product saved my you-know-what as replacement doors are no longer available. See pix.

This product is worth it's weight in...paint. I tackled a circa 1983 kitchen with Euro Almond cabinets with an oak finger rail; you know...the classic builder's cabinets in the 1980s. I took off the finger rail and used wood putty to make it a smooth edge then used the Cabinet Rescue paint to cover the almond. Lastly, I added some knobs to make it look more like a cabinet and less like a nightmare. After adjusting the hinges to center the slightly shorter doors, it looked like a completely different kitchen (for about $100). If you want a large impact for a small price, this is a great product to use. I noticed that the cure on it was much faster if I had my dehumidifier running nearby. The cure times on it are the only bugaboo...It is not "fingernail" cured until 7 days. Your patience will be rewarded!

Cabinet Rescue goes on beautifully and covers very well, too. We had it tinted Pewter Gray at Home Depot, to compliment the white replacement door and drawer fronts we had purchased for our out dated kitchen cabinets. My only regret is that we did not save the original door and drawer fronts and paint them, as well. It would have saved a lot of work and money. However, I love the new look of my kitchen! Cabinet Rescue is an excellent product! Our next project is to apply it to the old vanities in our bathrooms.
