How to Apply
Before applying the kits, there are things you should do beforehand. First, you must measure your cabinets’ length. Exceeded length may cause you to buy additional kit due to insufficient paint.
Second, you need to prepare two paintbrushes, three containers, a dry cloth, rubber gloves, and painter tape.
Third, empty your cabinets, then remove the cabinets’ doors and shelves. Then, remove hinges from the cabinet doors and keep them somewhere else. Next, cover your kitchen countertops with paper or plastic so the paint won’t drop.
After that, apply painter’s tape on the side of countertops, on the front edge inside the cabinet, and on the edge behind the cabinet.
Finally, clean your cabinet doors and carcasses with dry cloth so there won’t be any debris or dust.
When you are about to use the Cabinet Transformation Light or Dark Kits, then what you should do after cleaning the doors and carcasses is to apply deglosser on them; make sure the surface is entirely covered.
After that, pour the bond coat inside a container and start painting your cabinet door and carcasses. Do not use a roller and use paint brush instead for perfect result.
When you’re done, let the paint dry for three hours, then apply second coat layer. After that, pour the glaze in a container and apply the glaze on the cabinet doors and carcasses.
Then, use the glaze cloth to wipe off the excessive glaze and let it dry for eight hours. Finally, pour the top coat into a container and apply it on the cabinet doors and carcasses.
