Answer: 
I had two drawers & ten doors and had way more than enough - they include two cans of each & I didn't even open the second. And I used an entire extra coat of the bond layer. My guess would certainly be that one kit is enough (though it depends on the size of everything).

You're going to need to measure it. Doors and drawers are different sizes, plus if you have any exposed sides or an island/bar you're going to need to paint that as well. On the box is a guide on how/what to measure to make sure you can do your whole kitchen. They also have a calculator and guide on their website. http://www.rustoleum.com/pages/homeowner/tools/cabinet-calculator/

As cabinets are all different sizes and layouts you must take measurments. First make a diagram of your cabinets. Measure (in inches) the length of the cabinets x the height of the cabinets. When measuring your base cabinets, start from the floor. Be sure to also measure the ends of the cabinets that are exposed. Make an additional measurement of the doors length x width as you will need to paint the insides of the doors also. Now you can multiply your length x width figures in inches. Do this in sections so the numbers don't get to big. This gives your total square inches. Divide the total square inches by 144 to get your square footage. For example, if your cabinets measure 120" x 30" = 3600 sq. in. Take 3600 divided by 144 = 25 square feet. Hope this helps. Read Less

You get much coverage with this product! Use new, quality brush as directed. I did not detect any bad smells from any of the different phases.

The idea for sanding is for the new paint to have something to hold on to. Do a light coat and build the paint with 2 or 3 coats rather than one thick coat. When applying the step 4 final top coat do it in light coats also . If it is put on too heavy or thick it seems to yellow. I would us a light to reflect off the surface so you can see areas that are missed. Read Less

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 189 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the Results I had been waiting to paint my cabinets for awhile. I really wanted a white kitchen because mine is so small. I finally bought the Rustoleum Pure White Cabinet Kit after a lot of research. It took longer than I thought because there are a lot of coats that I needed to put on to cover the darker shade of brown I had for my cabinets. I'm not the greatest painter, so there are definitely some imperfections, but overall they turned out great. I would warn you that it will take longer than a weekend to do unless you have multiple people helping. Each step needs a few hours to dry and you have to do the inside and outside of the cabinets 2-4 times. I am very happy I bought this product and would recommend to anyone that wants to change the look of their cabinets. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved this product! I used it on unfinished oak cabinets. The instructions said minimum of two coats but I did four. On the unfinished wood it looked almond color after only two coats. There was more than enough paint to do four coats on all of the cabinets and doors. The white is WHITE! Looks super clean and fresh. The clear coat really finishes off the cabinets. Definitely recommend and will purchase again myself when I need to paint the garage cabinets. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's Okay The bond and top coat are easy to apply but not the glaze. It looked dirty when we applied it so we just repainted it and settled with the pure white. July 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OMG!!!!! I LOVE THIS KIT!!! my awesomely fantastic mom and I did this in two weekends yes it was a lot more than what the video indicated but so worth every step. I did read the reviews before I started so I knew to add the water to step number 3 it really helped so that it wasn't so thick so it went on smoothly without any problems. I am so so so very pleased with the outcome that I have now started on all of the bathrooms in my house! I bought 3 kits, but really only needed one to do my entire kitchen and I have a lot of cabinets I took one bag and I'm keeping the other one to do the bathrooms. I keep going in there turning the light on off and saying "I did that!". May 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not exactly what I expected, but happy with the results I ordered 2 kits for finishing my ~150 sq ft kitchen cabinets, changing from a natural oak finish to plain white. I am a "medium level" DIY person with plenty of experience painting home interior, exterior, and furniture. The instructions are very helpful and I found it straightforward to prepare and do the work. The "no sanding" claim is true, but I found using the deglosser to be about as much effort as if I had done my typical prep of sanding and washing down with TSP. The scrubbing pads supplied seem to wear out fairly quickly (used all 4 pads when by area I should have been able to use 3). The base coat paint is water-based, but is thinner than a typical latex - it seems to adhere very well to the cabinets, but is more susceptible to dripping. When I started, I put the first coat on in a thin layer as advised, but found I was a little too thin and needed 3 coats to cover and avoid woodgrain showing through. So as I went along, I put on the first coat a little thicker and that made it possible to cover in 2 coats. The paint dries in a couple of hours as advertised, even though I did the project over several days with warm and cool temperatures, high and low humidity. I did not use the optional glazing - although using that might have made the base coat coverage less important. The top protectant coat goes on very easily, and levels well, although I did have to watch carefully for air bubbles and re-touch while the coat was wet. It dries fairly quickly, and has a medium-gloss finish that I would characterize as "satin". Overall I had a good experience and would recommend using this product. It could save hundreds of $ over paying someone else to refinish or replace your cabinets, as long as you are willing to put in the effort. Be aware it can take substantial time to take down cabinet doors, mask, fill holes, and prepare, then do 2 base coats, optional glaze coat, protective coat, and re-install. June 15, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not exactly what I was expecting.... I ordered this product thinking that it would be easier than sanding and painting the cabinets, as I have never done a project like this before. Upon opening the box, which was in perfect shape, I found two cans of the bond with significant dents in each, as if they were packed that way. I found the deglossing step easy, but after that, just encountered problem after problem. The bond, which is the white paint, is very thin and watery, which means that it was very hard to control drips. The directions said to use 2 coats, but I ended up using 4 to cover the oak finish on the cabinets. I skipped the glaze, based on reviews I had read. The top coat was also very thin, which meant more drips. I had intended on testing this out on our small guest bathroom and then moving onto the master and the kitchen, but I won't be using this again. It was also rather expensive and a bit of headache. I think I'll do my other rooms the old fashion way. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Labor of Love When we purchased our home we did a lot of DIY to save money. This product was very helpful in achieving our look on a budget. However, a few key points: 1) Follow the directions!!!! 2) Make sure you have a large enough staging area 3) Make sure you label the cabinet doors and corresponding cabinets 4) Make sure you thoroughly scrub the cabinets with the product provided. Some brown is starting to show thru, I repainted it while it was hanging so I'm ok with it. Just make sure you scrub the cabinets really well. Over all, this product has saved me thousands of dollars from having to install brand new cabinets. It is a good product. February 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cabinet Transformations - Light Kit Recently renovated our 33 year-old kitchen cabinets, which started out as dark walnut color. Chose Cabinet Transformations because it looked like a good product, and I have never had any problems with any Rustoleum paints. The process is straightforward and not difficult - just time consuming. We spent a lot of time waiting for paint to dry, but much of this was due to the limited working space I had available for the doors and drawers. Since we were going from very dark to very light (we chose "Linen" for our cabinets) we wound up using three coats rather than two. This wasn't a problem since our square footage put us just over the one-kit level, so we had plenty of product for the job. However, in retrospect, I think I would have been better off using a stain-blocking primer first, then two coats of the base coat product. We chose not to glaze our cabinets for two reasons: 1) It looked like a time-consuming step with a high possibility for errors, and 2) My wife wanted the finished product to be as bright as possible. This was o.k., but did lead to the one problem we had with the project, namely, that the top coat (which is a water-based polyurethane) tended to yellow when applied. Had we chosen a darker color, or glazed the cabinets, this would not have been very visible, but on our cabinets (particularly the doors) it was very noticeable. I had to contact Rustoleum's tech services and they advised me to thin the top coat by 5% with water and apply as sparingly as possible. This took care of the problem for the most part, but I am concerned that with such a thin top coat, the finish might not be as durable as it could be. Overall, we are very satisfied with the outcome of the project. Total cost, including new cabinet hardware and a new over-the-range microwave (that we also got on sale at Home Depot) was less than $500. The results were very attractive and achieved the desired effect, which was to make out kitchen look more open and bright. All together, I estimate we spent about 100 man-hours on the project spread out over ten days. We're happy with the outcome and would recommend this product to anyone who has even marginal do-it-yourself skills. Read and follow the instructions, and you will be pleased with the outcome.
