Another really good option is general finishes gel stain if you want to go with a darker color than what you already have. Great reviews on Amazon. I just bought a quart of the gel stain and topcoat for $20 each locally and That should be enough to do my kitchen and bathrooms.

We are just about finished with our kitchen. We used the espresso kit, although the lighting the picture makes it look more black for some reason.. but you can still get the idea of how much of a difference it can make. It was a long process, but I'm glad we did it and am very happy with the results!

NOT FAIR - you changed the back-splash too! Those of us who don't have the confidence to even paint cabinets are not going to attempt putting in back-splashes Wink
Your kitchen looks amazing though - great job! I have all stainless appliances too and I think they look great with espresso cabinetry.

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!
You did a great job.. you busy next weekend to do mine ha ha ha

It's sad that y'all's befores are something that I'd actually be happy with, since ours is so godawful ugly.

Sorry, long thread- does one package generally cover a whole kitchen? Ours is quite small.

I have one quick question, my bathroom cabinets and kitchen cabinets are getting old and I have seen that sepcially in bathroom cabinets that due to water and moisture the top coat of the cabinets are coming off.
Also, my kitchen cabinet also coming off, not sure whether my cabinets having paint or plastic coating over the wood or laminate.
My question is should I apply the paint on already coating or should I ripped off the old coating and then apply the paint.
Also, is one kit enough for typical Kitchen?

I agree. We did the GF java gel stain...it's almost like paint and you don't need to sand the cabinets down - just rough them up a little. The stuff is very forgiving so easy to use... but it stinks since it's oil based. Then used the satin poly on top. They have held up really well.

Ignore the plethora of photos - these were what I had sent to someone showing our handyman's work.

Did you use GF poly as your topcoat? If so, which one - gel, regular or the high performance. How did you apply it? As far as the wear, how long ago did you do them? BTW, they look beautiful.

Thanks so much. Did you apply the topcoat with a rag, foam brush, or synthetic brush.
