Customer Questions & Answers

Does the cabinet surface need to be stripped (e.g., glossy paint, etc.) before applying this product?

Asked by: Anonymous
The deglosser that comes with the kit is probably sufficient in most cases. Our cabinets were painted 2-3 times (poorly as well), so we opted to sand them down to be thorough. If you're curious, you can see the process we went through and the finished product here: <a href=""></a>.

Do I have to get the dark bond kit tinted somewhere? Mine is almost a clear color?

Asked by: Anonymous
When you purchase this product, you get it tinted at the paint counter to the color you want. The colors available are listed on the box. Note: The colors shown on the box are slightly lighter.

Approximately how many cabinets will one kit cover?

Asked by: Anonymous
There is a formula you can use to find out how much this kit will cover. I bought the small kit & it did both of my (SMALL) bathrooms. In total, it covered 2 small vanities & their doors (6 doors total) as well as my overhead small storage cabinets + their doors (2 doors total). Hope this helps!

Can you put it on raw wood?

We are buying unfinished cabinets and want to use these kits and we are wondering how it works and how to get the glazed look?
Asked by: Joanna
Yes, it works great, use a primer first. We've found the Paprika with the glaze comes out really nice

1 Qt. Espresso Small Cabinet Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 711.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this stuff!! so much better than sanding Ive done two baths and my kitchen now. Yes its time-consuming but results are amazing if you follow instructions and dont rush. I did add a shellac based primer under the light paint to assure no gold oak bleed through and I put an extra coat of bonding coat on as my cabinets were worn and dry and bonding coat soaked into grain with just two coats. I love the glazing but experiment on spare wood to develop the look and technique before you do the actual cabinets. Have the correct supplies- good brushes, etc.. If you are glazing, hand wash the wiping cloths and hang dry before use or youll get lint. Or buy (a lot) of lint free cloths and skip using the included ones.

If you cut corners and don't have the patience for drying times, skip it. But if you do exactly what the instructions say, it will turn out beautiful. 2. 1st coat of the bond coat looks terrible. This is normal. Keep those layers thin and keep going! 3. Don't fear the glaze! It really makes it sing. 4. Have some Qtips on hand to blot any excess top coat out of the corners. It will dry white on you if you let it pool.

It's VERY time consuming but also very inexpensive in comparison to typical refinishing options. My minor complaints are, the proportions of each product seems a bit off, at least for our usage. And you can't order any part of the kit individually. We had to buy 5 kits (white, espresso, and gray) to do 3 bath rooms and a kitchen. This was mainly because we had to do multiple coats of the bond coat. We have SO much leftover of all the other products. 4.5 bottles of deglosser, 4 cans of glaze, 3.5 cans of top coat. Seems to be a bit of a waste not being able to order ONLY more bond coat when needed. Tips, take your time, make sure there are no runs onto the other side of which you are painting. For the top coat, don't go thick but be consistent. It dries fast, touch up is near impossible and if too thick when it dries it's a nice (or not) milky color and is quite the hassle.

We purchased the dark tint with espresso as the finish. The finished product is great. My advice: watch the video that comes with the product, watch several YouTube videos, properly clean and de-gloss (recommend wearing a mask with de-gloss product), DONT use the decorative glaze (we tried on one cabinet and HATED it. The glaze made the color darker and streaky), high traffic areas apply two coats of protectant (final step). We also purchased a small kit of "White Fog" with the intent of painting our island a lighter, contrasting color than the cabinets - this color looks more gray/blue than a warm cream color - we painted over with espresso. Cleaned and spray painted the hinges a dark brown color to blend with the cabinets. After another $60 on knobs and handles we have beautiful, professional looking re-faced cabinets. Does not look like painted cabinets. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! After reading other people's reviews and suggestions. I agree with getting a good quality brush. I got the short handle trim paint brush from home depot. Loved it. Get about 4-6 2" foam brushes for touch ups and to help smooth out where the paint puddles. The instructional DVD was very helpful. Allow each coat to thoroughly dry. That's very important. It sets better inside or make sure your garage is heated. We had to wait longer for the drying process since it's winter and very cold in our garage. Overall, it looks amazing. We went from the boring honey oak color to the espresso color. Just very time consuming. More than a weekend project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from few more tips I used the light kit tinted Linen but did not use the included light glaze but instead used the Java glaze that comes with the dark kit. The light kit glaze has an orangish hue that I did not like. I applied glaze all over then wiped with a damp rag to remove most except in grooves and corners then wiped with a dry rag until I got the antiquied look I wanted but with very little glaze left on flat surfaces. Just enough to give a sheer tint in those areas without leaving streaks. Then I went back with a fine brush in the grooves to add more glaze where needed and then feathered it in those areas to look natural. If you dont like the results, immediately wipe down with a wet rag before it dries and try again. After allowing glaze to dry for 24 hours, i went back with the side of a sponge brush and outlined the cabinet doors and drawers to really make them pop. On the island I used the dark kit tinted chocolate with the included glaze. You can buy quart cans of the Java glaze at HD also if you need more. I wound up needing two light kits and one dark kit for my project since I did 3 coats of bonding coat.

I wanted to give my builders grade cabinets a facelift since purchasing new, for the kitchen and 3 bathrooms, would cost me some serious coin. I think the cabinets turned out very well with the linen color I went with. The only downside was the process was way too time consuming. This is not just a weekend project and the overall time it took me was about 2 straight weeks.
