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?

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, you may apply the transformation kit to raw wood, or unfinished cabinets. If painting over raw wood, it is recommended to use a primer such as Zinsser® Bulls Eye® 1-2-3 Primer to properly seal the surface. You may need to lightly sand away any raised wood grain.

Dark Color Cabinet Kit (9-Piece) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 698.
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.

We recently purchased a home and I hated the kitchen even though it was modern. The cabinets color was too dark and it made the kitchen look smaller. I considered changing the cabinets but didn't want to put in the money as I intend to expand the kitchen in a few years. And then I saw this and other products in the store. I read the reviews on this and the other products and opted out for this one even though it requires removing the doors and hardware. To be honest it was a lot more work than I bargained for. I expected it to be a one weekend job but it ended out been three weekends. I imagine it was longer because I did this by myself and I don't even know how to paint. Anyway, it was totally worth the time and effort. I have a fresher kitchen. Even though it is not the dream kitchen I no longer hate it. And all it took was this fresh paint. I totally recommend it. One thing to note is if you're going lighter from a darker color, it takes three coat to complete the job and there is not enough base bond to color that. So I did two coats in the inside doors and that was enough. Also it is recommended to use oil based paint first for older woods. I recommend you follow the instructions as I saw many reviews that mentioned that their cabinets turned blue, which is exactly what is stated on the box. Just don't make the same mistake I made and spill the paint on your car seat - it costs a lot to fix that :-).

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.

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.

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.

Although I didn't get the CD for this, I was able to watch the steps on youtube. I also was able to watch others transformations on you tube as well. My kids and I transformed the cabinets on a long weekend. We are pleased with the outcome of the product and although it was a little labor intensive it was well worth it. I have suggested this product to several people and would help them if asked. As you can see by the photo I still have lots to do to the kitchen BUT the cabinets look great! My advise is to watch several videos, follow the instructions and enjoy your beautiful cabinets once completed.
