Those who are located in the states that they don't ship to, you can buy from amazon at the same price. Only for Espresso and White with delayed shipping.

Please read this post regarding the known carcinogens in the paint kit: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=58682958&postcount=75
Also from the MSDS sheet: "Significant exposure is not anticipated during brush application or drying."

Not to sound negative, but looking at the box, I really do not see so much difference between the before and after pics for the espresso color. In fact, unless the box contains a faucet and some hardware, I see little "transformation."

Whats the difference betwee "wood refinishing system" and "cabinet coating system" ?

cabinet coating would be painting the cabinets. Refinishing would be redoing the existing finishing.

i have new cabinets but no glaze, does this kit just do glaze or is there something cheaper for that?

Can someone comment on this who is in the "know"?

I have the "honey" oak colored cabinets - which I despise. Good cabinets, just hate the color. Want to go white, thus would this be a good kit? Or should I take everything off sand down, and start fresh.


Time, Willingness & Patience I have - experience in Handy work I do not.

I used this kit a couple of years ago to redo some old white cabinets to an antiqued cream (forget the actual color). It took me a lot longer than a weekend, but that was in part due to the fact that the old hardware was rusted on and had 4-5 layers of old paint. After that, it went smoothly until applying the glaze. I had a hard time getting it to go on evenly, and ran out. But, I took a breath, talked to a Rustoleum service rep who sent me new glaze and gave me some tips, and I finished the project. Everyone loved the results. My brother used the cabernet on white cabinets and had a much easier time.

I have the Espresso kit and already transformed my batheroom vanity. It looks amazing now and I'm glad that I did it. To get a really nice look make sure you take your time when applying this kit as it will take a decent amount of time. I only ended up using 1/4 of the entire small size kit on the 5 foot stretch of vanity so it goes a long ways! I attached pictures below. I applied 2 very thin layers of the Base coat which created a Hershey chocolate color, then I applied the glaze to get the darker and richer Espresso color I wanted. To finish I applied 2 very very thin coats of the top protectant. I do have 2 tips if you are going to buy these kits:

1. The first step of the process is applying a liquid sander to dull down the varnish. We scrubbed the crap out of the cabinets with the stuff for over an hour and it still didn't do a very good job. I ended up digging out my power sander and quickly went over all of the cabinets and it got the job done in 1/10 of the time and was much easier and did a far superior job. If you don't have a power sander it may be worth getting one (even a cheap one) on amazon as they do come in very handy for many projects.

2. The last step is applying the protective top coat varnish (which dries very quickly as your applying it). I started doing this with a 2" soft synthetic brush like it recommends and it turned out really bad and streaky. Luckily I tested it on the back of one of the doors first. I did some research and found a lot of people have the same issue. Turns out using a 4" foam brush is the way to go. Make sure you buy 2 of 3 of the good quality foam brushes. I bought mine from Lowes and they were about $4 a brush. Don't buy the cheap $1 foam brushes as the foam isn't as dense or tight. When applying the top coat I first used the 2" synthetic to brush to apply a generous coat of the varnish ( its ok if its a little runny at this point.) *Don't use the foam brush to apply the top coat from the can, only use it to perform the last step of wiping it down. Next take the 4" foam brush and firmly press down on one of the cabinet edges and then drag the brush across the entire length of the cabinet without stopping and keep it in a straight line. The foam brush soaks up and wipes away all of the extra top coat leaving a very thin even coat. If the foam brush gets too saturated with the top coat it will leave lines and puddles on the cabinet. Wipe any drips with the foam brush. After you move on to the next cabinet door you will want to check on the previously done door as drips will most likely develop on it which you will need to once again wipe away with the foam brush. Once the first coat is dry (2-3 hrs) then apply a second coat in the same way. Make sure you use a clean, dry foam brush.


This is a great deal and worth the time and $ as long as you take your time and do it right! Rep!
