Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â 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.

It takes some time to apply all coats and let them dry but overall, it turned out great.
