Quick Question on these, anyone have any luck getting the local HD to price match? My wife wants a color a shade lighter than the espresso, and (at least as far as I can tell) if you buy at the local HD they can mix it at the store and you have a lot more color choices than just the three (please correct me if I'm wrong on this one too).

Thanks so much!
From the previous front page thread people mentioned this cannot be tinted. The one that can be tinted is more expensive

I recenly bought a house and the cabinets needed some love. I bought an orbital sander and sanded EVERYTHING. I primed them, and here comes my biggest mistake... Used GLOSS "self leveling paint" from SW. I painted it Dover White and I love the color but I hate the paint job. I used a high quality brush, but will the Gloss finish I can still see some brush marks. Self leveling my A$$!

I may have to check this out.

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:

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!
Wonderful job done you have worship Time to convince wife to move forward with this, really appreciate your tips!

I'm not really loving the results I see of closeup pictures. Looks like cheap paint.

These kits work great. I've used it on my bathroom vanity after seeing how well it turned out in my parents kitchen. Took me maybe 2 hours of work total over 4 days to do a 60" vanity. Well worth the money.

Thanks OP! I've been looking at these kits for a while and the code made it even better. Two kits, high density rollers, and a frame for $99.07 shipped. Repped! And thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences with the kits. I have been skeptical but everything I've read about the kits has been pretty positive.

I was able to use the $10 off coupon with only 2 kits to my cart. YMMV.

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.
Yes I did use the glaze. 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.

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!!
Haha, yeah it was a mess initially but redoing the cabinets forces my girlfriend to clean up all her stuff and organize it all. I did install a new counter top after I finished the cabinets.
