    Hi! I've seen it used. Just protect the edges from moisture and it isn't resistant to heat. Good luck!

    Due to the slippery surface, it will not be easy to cut the individual pieces to fit the exact dimensions of your cabinets so that the edges do not catch, or look ragged. As we all know, the world is not always straight and level.


    If your heart is set on using this, I would suggest to start with buying the smallest amount, and trying it out on one door first.

    Hello Trs,. I wouldn't put vinyl adhesive on the cabinets. When it starts to peel, you'll have a problem. This adhesive is not easy to get off. At some point, you'll want to change the color, then what will you do. Find a nice high gloss paint, which you can wash with just a wet damp rag or sponge. Aloha!

      A friend told me he wouldn't recommend this either.

      My cabinets are painted but the paint is peeling should i scrape where its at and redo the cabinets with the high gloss

    Trs. Try sanding the cabinets. It's a mess, but it will be better in the end. You can rent a sander from Home Depot for a reasonable amount. A small deposit is required. Aloha!

      Or you could buy a liquid sander.it's like a solution that you apply to the area to be sanded and it will start to make the finish bubble up and you can either use something like a putty knife or a paint scraper to easily remove the old finish. Be sure to read directions carefully and USE GLOVES while working on your project...works great without the "elbow grease" and extra scarring .

    Yes, it would be better to degrease the cabinets, sand, prime and paint. It will keep its look a lot longer. Good luck on whatever you decide.
