For those of you interested in the process on the cabinets here goes:

Home Depot and Lowes both sell a kit made by Rustoleum. Basically there are two different kits, one for light colors and one for dark. You pick the color that you want your cabinets to be and go to the paint counter and they mix your kit for you.

There is about 5 steps to refinishing them.
1. Deglossing. This is basically a chemical that helps take of any finish from your cabinets. You need to do this to the doors on both sides as well as the cabinets themselves.

2. First coat of paint. It will go on kinda thin. You will see the wood underneath.

3. Second coat. Looks like a painted cabinet at this point. Kinda flat.

4. Glazing. This is the step that gives the wood depth and brings out the grain in it. Don't skip this step. Makes a huge difference in the overall appearance.

5. Top coat. This stuff is thick like glue but important to protect the cabinets.

It's a time consuming process. Lots of waiting for each step to dry. It's important to do a good job on the deglossing so the paint doesn't come up later. I'm honestly not sure if this whole process was easier than stripping them down and restaining but the end result was pretty impressive.

The kits aren't too expensive for what you are getting really. A small kit is about 80 bucks and a large kit is 150. I have a ton of cabinets and used two small kits with some left over.

I would use the product again. We plan to do the bathroom in one of the lighter colors. They have a lot of options as far as colors go.

Hope this helps!

They look really beautiful...I'm so glad you're happy with the final outcome!

And I was just joking about the color being familiar

My tolerance for stupid shit is getting less and less.

DS, trust me that if we had gone the route of staining the color would be Jacobean! Lol.
