Cabinet Transformations by Rustoleum is a new, very cost-effective product that with some time and effort can transform and update your kitchen and vanity cabinets to a beautiful, professional finish with no sanding or priming.

It can also be applied to furniture and accessories. This material is applied with a paintbrush, but is so much more durable than a painted finish.

So, if you are looking for a new, fresh, updated look without the cost of new cabinets or refacing, this product is for you.

Materials:

-Cabinet Transformations Kit (tinted at The Home Depot to desired color) *Kit includes: Deglosser, scrub pads, Bond Coat, Glaze, Protective Top Coat, Rags, Stir Sticks, instruction Pamplet and DVD.

-Blue Painters Tape

-Drop Cloth

-Lint free cloths

-2" or 2 1/2" angled Purdy paint brush or any very high quality paint brush

Instructions:

- Read Manufacturers Instructions and watch the Instructional DVD -measure cabinetry to determine how many kits are needed.

- Select color and have Bond coat quarts tinted at The Home Depot .begin preparation by removing all doors and drawer fronts from cabinet boxes and remove all hinges, knobs or pulls.

- Tape off any surrounding wall areas, appliances, countertops, etc.

- Apply a liberal amount of Deglosser to folded in half green scuff pad, applying pressure, apply Deglosser to cabinets boxes, frames, doors and drawer fronts. Let dry about an hour. This will break and scuff the existing finish instead of sanding and priming. (Not intended for interiors.)

- Apply first Bond Coat, let dry 1-2 hours.
