Hugely time consuming - zero customer support
Deglossing takes as much time as sanding. The bond coat took five coats for full coverage. This looked really good actually. Then the protective coat looked awful no matter what we did. I reached out to Rustoleum with no response. Painted over everything.

    No longer worth it
    I am on my 4th coat and oak is still showing through and I'm almost out of paint which only covered 12 cabinet doors only! It's ridiculous. For the price I can buy Behr paint and have 1, max two coats for half the cost and half the time.

    That is not what we like to hear! If applying our Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations Kit, the base coat must be tinted at the store, and if using the lightest colors such as Pure White, we recommend priming the surface first using our Zinsser Cover Stain Primer: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-Cover-Stain-1-qt-White-Oil-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-3504/100398403 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

      Small box, Great Results.
      Started with a simple redo of a bathroom cabinet, but with the excellent results this quickly turned into both bathrooms and kitchen cabinets redo. It was easy to use, the results are amazing. Everyone that comes by ask if we replace the cabinets, we reply same cabinets just new counter tops. They cannot believe is a paint job.

        Looks great, until it doesn’t. Give it time
        I purchased this kit possibly 7yrs ago. I had someone else prepare and do the project, since I had no idea what to do. It looked great for about 3years, then all the paint started to wear off leaving the cabinet color exposed. Through the years it’s increasingly got worse. I recently contacted the company seeing if they had a touch up kit, since I don’t need to redo every cabinet. They don’t but offered me a free kit with proof of purchase….From 7yrs ago. Not a coupon or discount code for the product. Who holds onto receipts for that long?! Needless to say i will not be repurchasing a kit. It’s a lot of work and it doesn’t last. You can see the knob color is wearing too. That was their spray paint.

        That is not what we like to hear! The included top coat in our Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations Kits is designed to protect the underlying bond coat from wear and tear when applied at the recommended thickness. We stand behind our products with our Satisfaction Guarantee, however, we do require proof of purchase to assist with this. If you are able to locate a copy of your receipt, or if you have any remaining kit components or packaging, we can help, and you can give us a call at 800-901-0411. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum

          Couldn’t be happier!!
          I loved this product! This was my first big diy did by myself and that cabinet transformation kit made it seem very achievable. I love that they give you everything you need (except brushes) right in the box. They really give a good detailed description of what you need to do so I felt pretty good going into each step. Parts of the process can feel lengthy at times but if you keep with it (and take breaks when you need them) it turns out wonderful. I think the coverage of the paint is great (although the white took more coats than the darker colors) and really goes a long way. I still have left over of each product that I’ve used in other places in my home. My only tip would be to find a place to do the doors where you can stand. I painted and cleaned the doors on the floor and after awhile it started to hurt my back which made me have to take more breaks and days off than I originally intended. But I got through it and absolutely love my kitchen!!!

            Light glaze with Linen color...WOW
            Hated my orangy yellow oak cabinets with laminate sidings and looking for solutions that didn't include costly new cabinets. 1st tried gel staining on sample wood, but would be too dark for my decor. Then I stumbled upon this product and watched Rust-Oleum how to video on YouTube that even taught different glazing techniques. So decided to give it a try. I knew I wanted to go lighter to play off the cream base color of my granite and lighter brown hardwood look tile floors. But I like the texture look of wood but never liked white cabinets because it's been done too much. The glaze is a way to give that textured unique look, that makes me stare at my cabinets every time I enter my kitchen instead of trying to ignore them. It does take some time and patience, in my case it took several weeks because I only worked on my large kitchen one day a week and in phases. 1st upper cabinets until completion, then bottom cabinets and lastly the island.

              Took a long time waiting for each step to dry, but it came out really nice. For ~$90 it’s worth the time & effort.

              Could not be happier with the results.
              This was your average builders grade medium oak cabinet. Terribly ugly and dated in a basement half bath. First time using this product and couldn't be happier with the outcome. I used the Gray Harbor color with the brown glaze. The results were nothing short of amazing for the price. I did a coat a day which took a little more than a week. I will be using the rest of the kit to do the ugly oak kitchenette area for a matching look. It takes time but the results are worth it.
