Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sgrlstar1 Great cabinet paint!
I read all of the reviews and followed them, to paint my kitchen oak cabinets: start by degreaser, then lightly sand, remove dust with tack cloths, then prime with wagner paint sprayer, then with one coat of cabinet paint, let dry overnight, then another coat of cabinet paint the next day and let dry another day, then was able to hang all the cabinet doors and drawers. It went on very easy, covered yellow spots that the primer didnt cover and feels very durable, doesnt feel sticky and dried very fast. I cannot wait to use the paint for the bathrooms cabinets.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jfaye Great if you are painting your cabinets white
If you are painting your cabinets white, then this is the product for you! I tinted mine a grey shade after some coercing by the paint department at my local Home Depot. The paint does not tint exactly as Behr colors, so don't be fooled by other reviews. My cabinets read periwinkle. Also, I'm not sure that the tinting affected the quality as the paint is chipping in places when bumped.
Hope this helps!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HSHOBX Excellent performance and value.
We tried Rustoleum's Cabinet Transformations and it worked very well, but it's expensive at $79 per quart, and we don't use the included glaze so that's just a waste, and the poly finish coat is an extra step.
Cabinet Coat contains urethane, is a nice satin finish, goes on easily and cleans up well.
We first washed and primed old cabinets, then two coats of Cabinet Coat and they were like new again. We have also used this on new unfinished cabinets - we did not prime first but should have.
Interesting that this kit is $2 cheaper than Cabinet Coat sold on its own? Identical can of product, but the kit provides some tools (roller, paint tray, tack cloth) for less money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ron Great product if prep right.
Sanding and using the right primer is the key for this to work . I had dark stained cabinets I sanded the urethane down to the stain and it kept bleeding through even though I used Kilz water-based primer. I asked a professional painter what my problem was and he told me they use the Kilz oil based spray primer which is the key to making this happen as older cabinets were sometimes oil base stain. I removed the cabinet doors and layed them flat for paining and used the roller provide with the kit and the finished turned out like glass. My cabinets now look like they were store-bought. I recommend this product as long as you have the time and patients to do them as it will take a great deal of time.

I took my flat front 1960s cabinets, trimmed them out with some 1/2" x 2 and 1/2" mullion trim, sanded, wiped with tack cloth and applied with foam roller and quality paint brush and got excellent results. The paint went on well and leveled off beautifully. Couldn't be more pleased with the look. Hoping to be equally pleased with the durability.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DocHoliday Worked great for my project
Product worked great for my project. Pricey per gallon, but goes a long way. The white is a very bright white. I refinished golden oak cabinets and took advantage of the grain in them to apply some Rust-Oleum Transformations decorative glaze (Java Brown) after painting, then some light sanding with 800-2000 grit wet sandpaper- This gave a very smooth finish and distressed look. VERY pleased...No-one can tell I painted these cabinets. They look factory finished! Fairly time consuming the way I did it, but saved a ton over new cabinets.

Did not have problem with chipping
Used a gallon for 8 drawers, 18 doors and bases. All had previously been painted white with wall paint. Also, only painted backs on about half of doors and did not paint inside of drawers. It took three coats to cover all surfaces.
Used roller and foam paint brush. Both worked ok. If your picky, you can see patterns with both methods from about 12 inches away. Further than 12 inches, cabinets look solid white.
This paint was definite improvement from wall paint.
The paint runs. I looked carefully while painting and still found “drops” on all surfaces after paint dried. Recommend painting backs of doors first.
I did run out of sand paper, but you can buy 5 sheets of 220 sand paper for $3. Sanded and/or wire brushed all surfaces to be painted.
Started out waiting 6 hrs between coats per instructions, but job was taking too long. Changed to waiting a hour and did not have a problem with paint. Brushes and roller clean up easily with water.
Kit price was great considering you get roller, tray, sandpaper, tack cloth along with paint.

After resanding 3 doors. it didn't take long to learn how to work with this paint. I agree read all the reviews they will help you understand how to use this paint. I had my paint tinted a gray color at HD.
It takes a long time between coats of paint. I gave a second coat after about 3 hours. The cabinets look great after you are finished. Much better than if you used regular paint. With a lot harder surface,
that you need on cabinets. I had 26 doors so this was no easy fast job. You had to take your time. I also sanded and primed all the wood first. Buy the kit the black roller in the kit is great for the job.
