What is the ideal temperature to use this kit to allow proper drying. I would like to do this as a winter project with setup in my garage (no heat), but temps are only ranging from the 40's -60 during the day/evenings so they are pretty mild right now.

Answer: 
Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations should be applied when air (ambient) temperature is 50-
90°F (10-32°C) and relative humidity is below 60%. Cooler temperatures will extend the expected drying times on each step.

I am not a DIY type of person, but really considering doing this. Is it as easy as it is being made to seem? Updating my kitchen with counters, etc, but trying to save money on the cabinets.

Answer: 
Hello NotSOHandy,
Yes and No... Its very time consuming and not forgiving if you make a mistake. I painted a vanity and cabinet for a bathroom and it took much longer than expected because you need to wait for the previous application to completely dry before proceeding. Would I use this product again? probably not.

Answer: 
The bond coat in Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations Kit is not available as a seperate component to purchase. For this reason, we put the square footage in the description and have a kit calculator. No two kitchens are alike, so measuring and using the square footage calculator will help determine how many kits are needed for your kitchen.

Dark Color Cabinet Kit (9-Piece) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 594.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Cabinets... I was told by multiple kitchen remolding contractors that you CANNOT paint these cabinets because it is made of Thermofoil, and it would cost me over $10k to replace it. I decided to remove two zeros from that amount ($10,000 :) $100) to buy Rust-oleum and I think I made 2nd best choice of my life (first was proposing my then GF and now wife) Either you can go spend thousands of $$ and replace all cabinets or simply pay less than $100 and paint it. I also had some questions and called customer support and they have one of the best customer support out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard Work, Time Consuming but Very Pleased with Results We are moving and selling our home so we decided to freshen up the kitchen cabinets. They are originally the builder grade Honey Oak color and we chose Linen. I did a lot of research and here are a few tips from my experience. The only regrets I have are that I didn't do this sooner, and in cooler weather! 1. Practice first - I had a few extra cabinet pieces that I practiced on. I highly recommend trying it on scrap wood first, to figure out how the paint goes on, brushstrokes, etc. 2. The deglosser works, but after deglossing 4 cabinet doors, my right shoulder and elbow are permanently sore. I went back to HD and bought an orbital sander-does the same thing with less work. 3. Unless you're looking for a rustic, country-style finish, do not use the color glaze. I tried it on a practice piece and the glaze made it look dirty. The Linen color by itself is fresh and clean. I skipped the glaze and went directly to the top coat. 4. I read that many had issues with the top coat included in the kit, so again, I used it on a practice piece. As long as you don't glop it on or let it build up in the corners, you will not have any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW!!! This is the product that FINALLY made our kitchen Pop! Our 1990's kitchen seemed outdated several years ago. We added Granite Countertops. Still looked dated. Then we added a ceramic tile backslash. Still seemed old. Then we dropped $5,500 on stainless steel appliances. We still Did Not have the kitchen we wanted. We had toyed with the idea of having the cabinets replaced or even refaced. Way too much money - thousands of dollars quoted. Then we saw this product online. We drove to our local Home Depot and purchased a kit for $74.00. The project took an entire weekend and then a couple days you wrap up the finishing touches. My wife and I did the entire project ourselves. The directions were very straight forward and easy to follow. We had 19 doors, 9 drawers and the cabinets they went to, to paint. We ended up buying a total of three kits because we could NOT purchase the bonding agent (Paint) separately. We ran low and had to buy full kit to get another 1/2 can of paint. They call the paint a bonding agent rather than paint. We spent an additional $133 for door and drawer pulls and $125 for painting supplies, brushes, pans, rags, tape and 40 painting points to place the doors on while painting them. The results were AWESOME!! It made every penny we spent prior to painting the cabinets finally pay off!! You can see the results in the pictures. I have included a BEFORE of the ORIGINAL kitchen - then a BEFORE after Granite and stainless appliances were added - and then an AFTER Picture showing the FINISHED Project with the newly painted cabinets. I highly recommend this for anyone that can paint, and has good serviceable but dated cabinets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard Work, but can't beat the result and price VERY hard work and you should be prepared for that before you begin, even though it is still easier than sanding everything down. That being said, the result looks great and it's priced right. Take your time and use caution and you can't go wrong.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from DO NOT USE TOP COAT IN KIT All went well up till applying the top coat. Loved how the kitchen looked after applying bond coat. Then I used the protective top coat and ruined all the cabinet boxes. It is impossible to apply. Like watered down school glue. Leaves lumps and streaks. And I am no painting rooky. Boxes dried for a full 24 hours before applying top coat. Thankfully I found a thread where others were having the exact same problem. The "pro" said to sand off the top coat and use minwax water based polyurethane. so even rustoleum says the top coat sucks. Why continue to sell it?? IT WILL RUIN ALL YOUR HOURS OF LABOR. Just buy some deglosser, cabinet paint, and polyurethane. Done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kitchen Facelift Good do-it-yourself kit. Not a five star rating because you really need to purchase a high hide primer and apply it before moving to the Bond Coat in the kit. We tinted the primer gray, applied one coat of the primer and applied two coats of the Bond Coat from the kit. I did not use the Glaze, skipped right to the Protective Top Coat, which must be applied in a very thin layer, being SURE to wipe away any runs or build-up, as they will dry with a yellowish tint.
