Looks great jtroberts. Thanks for the tips, I gave up reps.
I want to do this on my bathroom vanity but I can't see myself having time to do it soon so I think I'll pass this time.

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.


Are they solid wood cabinets or laminate? If solid wood sand them down to remove the stain and then restain whatever color you want. Just be careful, if you have a smaller sized kitchen you'll want to go with a lighter stain, because going too dark in a smaller kitchen will make it feel and look confining. Same goes with paint. If your cabinets are laminate all you can do is sand then down a little and paint over them.


Not sure what yours are? Open a lower cabinet and take a little sand paper to the back of the door and you'll be able to see wood grain if wood or none if laminate.

I have seen posts from people saying that the white doesn't cover well. One person said that they had to use five coats instead of the suggested 2 coats.

I would not try to paint oak unless you want the grain texture showing through. It's not a great wood for painting but it is very forgiving with stain.

Jtroberts --I did the same thing to my bathroom cabinets. Yours looks really nice. I'm happy with mine also. I tried the glaze and I couldn't see any difference, so I didn't use it. Other people are saying that they suggest using the glaze with the espresso base. Did you use the glaze? If so are you happy with it and glad that you did it?

I chose to use oil-based top coat instead of the included product. As I understand it, oil-based is more durable and I found it easier to work with. I applied two coats with a foam brush.

I chimed in in February. Not sure if the link will work, but if you search, the thread the last time this deal came out is still out there. I used this over golden oak and it did take many coats of the base to cover the grain, but I think ended up looking very good. If I had to do it again, I think I would have used Kilz primer prior to this kit, but if you have time, it does look very good when completed. I was reusing custom made 25 year old cabinets that are much nicer than the cheapos you can purchase at home improvement stores so I wanted to reuse them instead of scrap them.

About a week at night in my garage, five cases of beer, and I was able to reinstall them.

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 do have 2 tips if you are going to buy these kits:

Wow, just wanted to say that you did a great job there. But I really, really wanted to comment on your choice of pictures....its like those weight-loss or acne infomercials, where the first picture is a horrible mess, then the last picture with the improved product is spotlessly exquisite!! LMAOLMAO

I'm not saying you did that intentionally, or knocking your work - just saying you used great marketing schemes!!

So if you have to go through all the trouble of sanding etc. why even bother with the kit? I guess my point is, what does this KIT offer that sanding and painting or staining wont?

You don't need to sand. The "deglazer" takes the shine off and you start covering. I had alot of nooks and crannies I did not want to deal with trying to sand and was happy with how it refinished. If you have flat cabinets without detail, go for sanding down to fresh wood, but if you are looking to to put a nice, durable finish without going to fresh wood, I think this is a great option.

Drying time and doing inside and outside of doors makes this more than a weekend job. Being able to fill the old holes with filler prior to refinishing makes changing hardware easy.

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 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!

WOW!! Amazing!! I have an older looking bathroom cabinets that look like yours, you just convinced me to get this the only problem is I would like to replace the counter top on top later on also but it's difficult finding a good size, probably have to get it custom made. I think I might buy this kit since it's a great price for such a big difference! Then decide later on the sink and counter top. I have a double sink and hopefully one kit is enough to cover both.. my vanity doesn't have sides(walls are on both sides) so I think it'll be enough.
