3 quarts Vanilla Frosting
1.25 pints Smoky Quartz glaze
2 quarts Tough Coat
I honestly think a normal user would require even less of the paint and top coat. Since I sprayed there is some over spray to take account for!
Before this kitchen was dark and dated. The cabinets were solid wood and in good shape so painting them made the most sense for my client.
I went ahead and used a strong cleaner solution to wipe down all of the surfaces BEFORE sanding. Make sure you do this step in order if attempting on your own! If you sand first you are just pushing the dirt and grease into the surface. Always clean first and then sand!
Obviously with Country Chic Paint you wouldn't normally have to sand your project. With this being a kitchen it is highly recommended. There is so much grease and grime in a kitchen and proper prep up front will save you stress and headaches later!
Since these cabinets were dark in it's existing finish I did choose to prime with a Shellac base primer just to be proactive and guard against any bleed through. After the primer was dried I applied the Vanilla Frosting Paint.
To finish off the cabinets I used Tough Coat to protect the paint. I used 2 coats just to ensure a sturdy durable finish for this high traffic area!
What do you think about the finished product??
