Oak Cabinet Update With NO SANDING, PRIMING OR SEALING

My home was filled with outdated oak cabinets from the kitchens to the bathrooms. And purchasing new ones just aren’t in the budget. For the kitchen, we opted to do a full paint job with all the steps. For this bathroom cabinet, we tried something new that came out beautifully.


I found a new product called Beyond Paint, which came as a recommendation from a friend attending a trade show, knowing what I went through to do my kitchen cabinets.


While they came out beautifully, it was a lot of work to get there.

Being that the bathroom is smaller, I figured I would give it a try and works case scenario is that I had to do it over again in the same way I did the kitchen.


I am happy to report that, that won't be happening and the project was a total success.


I started by cleaning the cabinets with a vinegar and water solution.

I removed the doors to paint the box without getting it on the hinges.

I reattached the doors and painted them hanging along with the drawer fronts.


It took a full two coats with some minor touch-ups for full coverage.


It came out absolutely beautiful.

      does that paint hold up in the bathroom well with all the moisture, I have a vanity which I hate but my husband insisted we use because it was free, would love to do something else with it cause I totally hate it

    It’s been a year since you did this project. How does the cabinet look now?

    Great job! I love your mirror, hardware, and paint color. I was wondering if you hung the mirror vertically over one sink and got the same one for the other sink, then you could put a sconce in between the two mirrors. Just a friendly suggestion. (Each summer I want to paint my ugly kitchen cabinets but because of the work and time involved, it’s been put off. Maybe I can use this paint and do it next summer...fingers crossed!)

    Beautiful! And I love the mirror. Did you paint it too? If so, give details!
