If you’re not fond of sanding but want to refinish your
cabinets then Rustoleum has a product for you:
Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations.
The kit sells at Home Depot for around $75.00 and finishes approximately
100 sq ft of cabinets. Instead of sanding a ‘de-glossing’ compound is
The process is 4 or 5 steps,
depending on whether you use the decorative glaze. The kit comes with an instructional DVD that
provides chapters to refer to during each step along the way.There are two choices of kits: one for light colored cabinets and one for
dark colored cabinets. You must have the
color mixed in Home Depot's paint department before you leave the store.
This Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations kit is perfect for the DIYer who has the
time and inclination to invest in the process.
For best results you want to remove all the cabinet doors, drawers and hardware
before you begin. Then you degloss by
cleaning with soap and water then scrubbing with the de-glossing compound using
a Brillo-type pad (hint: do not use
steel wool as it leaves fibers behind and you might want to invest in a few extra Brillo pads along with some rags if you don't have a good supply on hand).
After deglossing and letting everything dry for 1 to 2 hours
you begin painting the cabinets your desired color. Two coats of paint are required allowing at
least 2 to 3 hours drying time between applying coats. After the 2nd coat dries you can
either use the decorative glaze or skip that step and finish by applying the
top coat that gives the cabinets a nice sheen.
After the top coat dries it’s time to re-attach the hardware and re-hang
the cabinet doors.
Again, the kit comes with instructions in both DVD format and a
written booklet. The time commitment for
refinishing the cabinets is fairly significant but for those who enjoy the
creative process it’s a great fit and provides a nice finished product. To purchase a Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations
kit visit your nearest Home Depot or for more information visit the Rustoleum website.
