Before: My cabinets were a builder grade solid wood chocolate color. All we did was clean our cabinets really good with Sprayway Glass cleaner using a t-shirt rag.

Before we took the doors off we used removable tabs by 3M to label our doors and drawers, then we removed the cabinet doors and left the hinges on the door part. We didnt remove the hinges

I used the Color Fluff for my cabinets. This paint is by Dixie Belle it is by far my very favorite paint and I think you will like it too.

I used 2 full 32 ounce containers for my kitchen.

This is one coat, some areas were difficult but we painted right over them and used 3 coats total. We did not sand in between!

You can use clorox wipes but I still prefer Sprayway Glass Cleaner when I clean all my furniture and for this kitchen makeover project

    Why do you use wax over the cabinets? Will it yellow over time?

      I used Waverly wax to avoid that. Still white! Painted these march 2018 no issues

    This looks amazing! I really want to redo my kitchen cabinets. I've been doing research for 2 years trying to find the best paint that will give me the results I desire. I would like a professional look but something that can withstand a kitchen that gets a lot traffic, as I have 5 children. I want something that will not wear off easily if scratched or washed repeatedly, something to stand the test of time. How would you rate the durability of the product used?

      Thank you. The cost of white wood finish. Was thousands so this was the best alternative. It really was dark and no windows
