So a couple of years back I had a cabinet makeover….NIGHTMARE.
I painted my kitchen cabinets white and it took me hours and hours. I applied a poly coat on top and the next day they started turning yellow.
I cried. I was so frustrated with all of the prep work and time it took and then for them to turn a yicky yellow-y color? Definitely my biggest DIY fail ever.
When I had the opportunity to try out a brand new product by Valspar, their Cabinet Enamel paint I was nervous. I decided I would tackle a small project to see if I liked the paint. It was supposed to leave no brush marks, no yellowing, and even cover old finishes!
I decided to try it on my basement bathroom and wanted a light, gray look so I chose the Valspar Granite color.
I grabbed my headphones and a good audible book and went in. My cabinets didn’t need any prepping because they were pretty smooth, but I would suggest giving your cabinets a light sanding if you have any bumps or major imperfections.
I started painting and noticed…
- the paint wasn’t as strong smelling as some of the other paints with oil in them
- it went on very smoothly
- I could’ve gotten away with only one coat, but it gave it that professional look by adding one more.
I added some hardware and LOVE how the cabinets turned out!
