Answer: 
Yes to all.
The woodgrain will show through, it looks great. Even on a surface that does not have woodgrain (like the vinyl stickers on the sides) you can create fake woodgrain with the glaze.
The system includes four steps:
-Deglazingso that the stain sticks
-Stain
- Glaze that adds color, shine and texture
- Finishing

Answer: 
Cabinet Transformatons is both a paint and stain with a sealer. Wood grains does show and you have control over how much (if any) show.
From my own experience follow the directions in the box exactly to prevent a bad experience. It really is a great product.

Answer: 
It is what I would say a mixture of both, it is stain but has the thickness of a paint. Your wood grain will show through but if you put more coats on it you could make it so the woodgrain does not show.

Rustoleum has two products for redoing cabinets. One is the Wood Refinishing System and the other is the original Cabinet Transformations System. The Cabinet Transformations original product with the light colors box and the dark colors box is the best to use for cabinets that are very worn or for cabinets for which you want to completely change the look. It is a paint and will completely cover the cabinets and any stains. The deglazing process is hard work, but does a good job of prepping the surface. The glazing step is the one that allows the "wood grain" look. No wood grain actually shows through as it is covered with the paint. I changed cabinets from an oak color to an espresso brown and I love the look and the finish and it has held up well. Read Less

Answer: 
This is a system. If you are refinishing cabinets they probably have a high-gloss finish that will make it difficult for any paint or stain to stick to the door.
The kit includes a deglosser, a base color , a stain and a finisher. If you use the stain only it won't work without the base and you won't get the desired color.

This is a system that takes you from the cleaning to the final clear coat to preserve all your hard work. I know I purchased 3 and really only needed the one so I just did my bathroom vanities with my left over.
Rustoleum does have excellent information regarding the transformations products and even have video of how to do your project.

After the stain is applied you can either keep it just like that or apply the glaze to give it more of a rich tone to the cabinets. If your cabinets are wood then I am sure buying the stain and the glaze separate would be fine but if you have faux wood, or any other material then buying this product would be best as it will apply to almost anything. My cabinets were wood but the trim I had around them were a plastic non-wood look alike, so applying this product was easy and gave the cabinets and the trim the same look. If I had only used stain and glaze I would have had to replace all the trim work with real wood then taxed with the challenge of making it look uniform. I hope this helps. Read Less

My cabinets are currently oak white wash, I am trying to get a darker look and wanted to buy the cabernet kit - can I still use this product?

Asked by
Davis

May 17, 2012
I was told at the store by the clerk in the painting dept that I could purchase this product, buy a really good brush (Purdy 3pk) and then paint. There would be no sanding, nothing but picking a tint (I guess to make the cabernet or red mahogany look) and then paint? Is this all to it? How do I know if my current cabinets have enamel on them?

The store clerk is correct. You will need four paint brushes and I would suggest buying a couple extra just in case you make a mistake and have to repeat a process (i.e. re-paint after staining). One of my cabinet doors had wet stain on it and I got stain on my brush along with the protective covering. The combination turned my green cabinets copper.

I had to re-paint, re-stain and re-protect four of my cabinet doors. It took no time re-do everything, but it took another 24 hours for the drying process.

I suggest you get a good brush and include an angle brush, and a couple of sponge brushes for the last coat it helps with the corners. I needed nothing except rubber gloves, everything else was included in the box. I had so much left over after 2 baths that I am doing my daughters baths this weekend.
My next project is the kitchen, since it is so easy (time consuming maybe) but so worth it in the end. I am giong to go with the lighter color kit because my kitchen is small and the lighter the color the larger the room looks, but it will have a fresh look. Since all my appliances are silver the darker kit had more yellow in the stain or glaze which I personally did not like so I experimented with Martha Stewarts silver metallic glaze, wiped on, wiped off, and it looks fabulous! I would not hesitate to purchase this kit, it can't get any easier than this!
Good luck.

We did a large kitchen and four bathrooms with little over one kit, so I would recommend buying one.
The color is fairly consistent between kits, the color variation depends more on how well you mix the glaze and how consistently you apply it.

Answer: 
1) I am not sure how much stain you need to cover all of your cabinets. I don't know the square footage of your cabinets. 2) You do not need to mix your stain. You may want to consider mixing your colors to avoid color variation. How you wipe away the stain will determine the color outcome.

If you were to purchase more than one kit, we would not suggest mixing them all together.
To measure your cabinets:
Measure the length of your top cabinets (A + B) in inches and multiply times the height (E). Standard wall cabinet heights are: 12" – 18" and 30" – 42".
Measure the length of your bottom cabinets in inches (C + D) and multiply times the height (F). Standard base cabinet height is: 34-1/2".
Add these two totals together and divide by 144 to determine the total square feet you will need to cover.
This measurement excludes the inside of all cabinet frames.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by So afraid.................... I have had this stuff sitting in my garage for about 3 years now....honestly I am intimidated and cannot find anyone to do the job for me. I have those trefoil cabinets (already started stripping since they were peeling) and it seems too much of a task for me to handle on my own. I had such big dreams for me "HGTV" kitchen.....pale green walls, dark grey cabinets with cream countertops....oh well, may have to spend the money to have them professionally finished or replaced. June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First time, female, fifty and FANTASTIC! Don't Hesitate. I bought my condo in Florida with the old original oak kitchen in good shape the look was dated. Transformations was the answer. Our maintenance man could not believe the end result and now tells everyone about it. It is not what I would call a weekend project unless you have a very small kitchen. Prepartion is the key to a great result, follow the directions exactly (you will get what you put into it) be ready to show off your new cabinets in no time. I even did my batroom vanities again with excellent results. Don't hesitate start your project today you will love the new kitchen when complete. March 11, 2013

You can save alot of money by doing this project yourself and be pleased with the appearance of your cabinets. April 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Project and saved me tons! I got this product shortly before my child was born trying to finish up my kitchen before he arrived. We only used one kit and it only took one weekend, and a half day on monday. The time was mostly waiting for the paint to dry as it was a little humid when I did it. My cabinets were in great shape but they just looked out dated, we put this on and now we have a much better looking kitchen. Only down side would be, I would like the ability to buy a little more of each of the steps. I would have liked to put another coat of the 3rd step on but I did not have anymore left and didn't want to buy a whole other kit for just a little extra. Also make sure that you keep your door flat while drying as mine got just a little warped, but have since straightened out but I was a little concerned. October 27, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXTREMELY EASY AND DURABLE!!!! It was super easy and the best part is how durable it is, especially having 3 young children. Its been 3 years since I did mine and they still look brand new!!! It only cost me $150 (including wall paint) to "remodel" my kitchen! August 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent solution to buying new cabinets I just used cabinet transformation to transform my cabinets. I attempted to re-do my cabinets a couple of years ago and did a horrible job. Rust-Oleum must have had me in mind when they decided to put this kit together. They provide a DVD and step-by-step instructions to transforming your cabinets. Keep in mind this project will take at least 48 to 72 hours and you will need space for your cabinet doors to dry. There were a lot of colors to choose from. This was a great idea and I'm glad I bumped into the kit at Home Depot. February 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Affordable Cabinet Refinishing! This easy to follow 3 step refinishing kit does exactly what it says it does. The cabinets in the kitchen we redid were from 1984 and had worn varnish from wet hands. The color was a typical 1980s oak and we went with 'Gunstock' which is a darker more modern color. The only problem encountered was a shortage of 'step 3' finishing solution but the paint department recommended another Rustoleum product for us so we didn't have to purchase an additional kit to complete the project.
