Kitchen cabinet paint pics!


I finally got my kitchen finished! I absolutely love love love it. I can not beleive what a difference it has made in my house! Even my husband was impressed. I just wanted to give a great big THANK YOU to everyone who answered my questions, you taught me so much, and I owe these results to many of you! Keep up the good work!

I used BM 'Morning Coffee' on the walls. Ace cabinet door and trim 'Mountain Getaway' on the cabinets, and Ace cabinet door and trim 'high hiding white' on the beadboard around the breakfast bar!

Tell us...why on earth would you switch away from the center-door cabinet handles?!?!? hee-hee!

Seriously...that looks AWESOME! Especially in the closeup! Anymore closeup pics in daylight, maybe taken at a slight angle?
It looks like you sprayed them?!?!

I'm glad you liked the ACE Cabinet paint. I can't remember if I mentioned it to you or not, but I'm glad you found out about it! We get many favorable comments on it in my Paint-dept. I wish more people knew about this stuff! ACE should advertise it more...

I did it all by hand with a 'purdy' brush! I love the ace paint, it was a little tricky at first, but I figured it out! There are some brush strokes on the inside of the door, but hardly noticable. You can't even see the hole that was there for the old handles, I did them by hand too!!!! I am so freakin happy with it!

Looks fantastic! Exactly what I need to do to the cabinets in my laundry room. Mine look almost identical to your pre-painted cabinets.

Couple questions:

Did you need to prime them or just paint? How many coats?

Did you remove all the doors/hardware?

How long did this take and, yes, how many coats? Looks great! What an inspiration to those of us staring at tired, old cabinets!

I'm about to use Ace Cabinet, Door & Trim paint on my bathroom vanity. For those of you who have used it, should I use a brush or roller on large areas? After reading that I only have about 30 seconds max to play with this paint, I was worried about how to cover the side of my vanity which goes from floor to ceiling. If a roller, what type, foam or no foam? I appreciate any tips.

Good job!

We just bought a house with old cabinets that we're going to try to rejuvenate.

I am attempting an indentical 'rejuvenation' of our awful 80s cabinets next week and am just wondering if you have any tips for properly filling the holes? Mine are right on top of the grooves so it's almost as though I will have to reconstruct the grooves.
