Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Florida So Easy . . . Great Results!!!!!
I purchased this product to change the look of my oak cabinets in my bathroom. I couldn't believe how easy the process was. I loved that I didn't have to san and prime the cabinets! My cabinets now are absolutely beautiful and I did them in a weekend. Highly recommend this product to anyone considering updating their cabinets. Only con is that they scratched easily - would recommend a couple of coats of the protectant to prevent this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gman Great transformation - recommended!
Look, it is quite some work: dismounting doors, taking off the sheen, painting with the base, adding the glaze then finishing. Yes you have to be careful and you might want to get practice first. A whole kitchen will take a good number of hours to complete.
BUT - IT'S WORTH IT!
The results are pretty awesome. I am impressed. The color is great. It works on non-wood surfaces too, like the vinil on the sides.
A contractor gave us an estimate for about $5,000 for our whole house. I did it with one box and a little bit from a second one. Pretty good value. Recommended if you have time, dedication, and basic painting skills.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handymam DIY for a low cost, new look!
As said by others, easy to use if you follow the directions! I did 2 bathroom, builder-grade oak cabinets and it barely made a dent in the supplies! The process was quick and easy, it was the wait time of drying that took the longest so from start to finish was 1 week. Easy enough to paint a coat before I'd go to work-just be sure to wrap up your brushes in between coats. The glaze coat really added that professional look. Definitely worth the time and love the inexpensive change-I've gotten so many compliments! Watch video, follow directions and use thin coats and you will be successful too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brian Great Product, modern look!
Easy step by step process. Comes with written and DVD instructions. Very nice that everything is low odor, and water soluble for easy cleanup. It will take some 'elbo grease' to degloss but that is better than sanding. You need to do two coats of the bond for full coverage. It is normal to see brush streaks in the first coat, they cover easy on the second coat. I used Espresso to cover my existing oak look. I did not use/need the glazing step. The protective final step coat starts drying quickly, so it is good to keep working and not to go back and brush over it again. If you do go back and brush over it, it will look like you did not put enough on when it dries. I received nothing but complements on the more modern turnout of my kitchen cabinets. It looks like I spent thousands. I liked the results so much that this is my second order where I am now in the process of doing my bathroom and laundry room cabinets.

This is a great product and just what I needed to update my kitchen. I wasn't looking to spend a fortune so this was perfect. Yes it is time consuming but it's easy and its worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrshaha927 Very surprised at the results
I was concerned to be painting my wood cabinets, but after a little practice, decided to go for it. I was so amazed at the results! They are beautiful! I did, however, skip the step right before the protectant because it seemed to be redundant. I didn't see a difference because the color was expresso (dark brown). I can see how you would need it for lighter cabinets though. It is time consuming because of the wait time, but it is definitely worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jackson30375 Great product that will save you thousands!
We were going to have Home Depot reface our cabinets but saw this product in the paint department and decided to give it a try. It saved us $13,000 and our kitchen has been transformed! We used Linen on the perimeter cabinets and Expresso on the island. I followed the instructions and took my time to do it right. The glaze on the lighter color was a bit tricky to get consistent. Some cabinets came out lighter than others, but overall it gives it a Tuscan feel. After reading the horror stories about the Top Coat in the kit, I decided to follow other's suggestions and buy Varathane Polyeurthane. I didn't end up with any streaking or white residue and it was super easy to apply. I would highly recommend this product but skip the Top Coat and buy Varathane if you are using the dark kit.
