Paint Cabinets White For Less Than $120 – DIY Paint Cabinets

ok so today i will be painting my
kitchen cabinets and i will be using the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations
cabinet coding system and the reason why i chose to do this is because I did not want to sand. We’ve been in this house for five years and this is what my
cabinets look like now and i have stuff there on the bottom and
so I’m we’re just going to get right to it so first off and i did this last night i
washed with soapy water the cabinets that are directly over the
stove because when you’re cooking it leaves a film in the kit says you want
to make sure that they’re nice and clean so before you do the deglossing
step which is actually the first step you know it’ll help so yeah so i’m going to do a before and
you know what normally I’ll say this normally people i
mean they do advise you to do is take all your stuff out of the cabinets and i
started with that was like you know what I don’t think so so this is what i’m
going to attempt to do this with things in my cabinet going to be very careful
if I see that it’s not going to work then but yeah we have stuff everywhere so anyways i’m going to see if I can do
this the most time time and cost efficient way so let’s do it from here so this is the
before…let me close these cabinets this is the before hopefully the after we look pretty good and so first off you want to clear space
I’ve seen some people use the garage but it’s entirely too hot here in Texas so
i’m going to be doing the top cabinets I’m gonna be doing these in sections, since I’m doing it myself so what I’ve done is I’ve basically
blocked my kids in with my hubby over there and I have two tables that I can
utilize after I clear them off and then this space on the floor that i’ll be
putting the cabinets on to dry and coat and dry you know so first things first I’m going to go
ahead and remove the cabinet doors and i will show you you want to number each cabinet and with any hardware that comes off the cabinet i’m going to put it in the corresponding
number so here we go ok so here we just went ahead and number
each cabinet door that we removed and we already began to take off the hardware so again it’s real important that you
number your cabinets and put any hardware coming off of each door into a
corresponding remember that yeah we’re just going to
continue taking off the hardware placing it in the corresponding bag and and also you want to make sure when you
start painting or deglossing or whatever I start with the backside first that
when you’re drying eventually the last step of drying will
be your what what’s facing outward where people will
be just in case you damage it you know you want to start with the
backside they’re here i’m just showing you all the cabinet doors on the top are
removed first you want to scrub off the cabinet
finish with the deglosser and this is what comes in the Rust Oleum at it and
it also must step 1 it also comes with I guess the green
scrub pad in the kits So next you are going to wipe the surface with a damp cloth just remove the deglosser we do degloss you want to make sure you apply a lot of pressure you want to make sure the finish comes off ok so next one with the lint free cloth
you want to dry it off ok so this step I kind of got creative
and used of my resources pulled some resources that i already had around the
house and to prop up each cabinet door to properly dry on each side we are going to use our mega Lego blocks
that my kids use and they work perfect so yeah we just kind of did like a
three-point support with the legos and voila there you have it a perfect way to prop
up your doors to let them dry ok back to work the next we’re going to
start with step 2 i’m using a two-and-a-half-inch paint brush which is
what is recommended with this kit and we are going to start painting on the bond
coat which is actually the color the pure white color so here we go ok so i’m going to show you after
putting on several coats of the bond coating with the paintbrush it kind of leaves like this streaky
finish here’s a better view of what I’m talking
about and I just didn’t like it I don’t like
the way it went on so I went and bought paint a semi gloss paint it’s a paint and primer and bought a
paint roller of a four inch little paint roller I went ahead and flipped over the cabinet
doors we’re going to start on the front side here we are as you can tell it’s a lot
smoother the finish is not streaky here’s a closer look and yeah so it
works so you know the kit was a great idea if you don’t want to
sand you know you don’t want to sand off the finish because that can be very
time consuming and tedious but I just was not content with the paint so you
know I adjusted my project and that’s ok because it’s still well within my budget
and I’m just going to go and show that how we finish the frame on top ok so here’s my cute little helper for
today this is day three and we are working on finally the bottom half of the kitchen
cabinet and here i just wanted to give you a close-up look of how much better
the paint goes on with the paint roller I also wanted to show you that i’m using
a small sponge brush and this came really handy in getting the little
crevices of the cabinet trim and as you can see it goes on really well with this
little sponge brush and it also helps with any like paint drips so that’s something else you might
consider if you’re going to be painting your kitchen cabinet ok ok before the big reveal here is the
before and tada this is the after and i absolutely love
it and again I did use the transformation
kit but I did not really use the last step of it and i went ahead and bought
my own paint and I’m happy that I did I am content with the outcome I do hope that you find this video
helpful if you’re trying to do you know a cabinet transformation within a budget this whole thing cost me less than a
hundred and twenty bucks and I not one hundred a hundred because the the extra money
came from buying that bucket of paint so I hope you find this video helpful
and thanks for watching
