Pickled Oak Cabinet Transformations
I am not the girl who asks for diamonds or gold for my birthday. I am the girl who asks for the practical things I have oohed & ahhed to have or use. My husband’s parents recently did the cabinet transformations in their kitchen and I was jealous. Their kitchen went from plain and boring to updated and modern simply by using the cabinet transformations kit by Rust-Oleum. When my birthday rolled around my husband gifted me with the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations. He knows me well. 🙂 I have wanted to change the kitchen cabinets since we moved in 5 years ago. The kitchen is small and the cabinets are pickled oak in color. This was a fantastic birthday present and I could not wait to get Troy started on transforming my cabinets!
The transformation is 4 step process. The first step you clean and de-gloss your cabinets as well as cabinet faces. The second step you apply the 2 coats of the bonding agent. The third step (which is elective) you apply the glazing. The fourth and last step you apply the protective clear coat.
Bond Coat of Cabinet Transformations
I must admit that when the bond coat dried, it concerned me. The color was very similar to a terra cotta pot. My kitchen color scheme is green, gray and black. Terra cotta does NOT compliment that palette AT ALL!
Final Results of Cabinet Transformations
Well, once again, my husband was right. (Did I really just say that??) The final look is AMAZING! I am so happy to have my “new” kitchen!
We were very pleased with the Rust-Oleum product. The instruction booklet as well as DVD were detailed and descriptive. We (my husband) were able to navigate through the instructions easily and complete the process without any stress. I would recommend this product to anyone who has cabinets that only need cosmetic work to get your kitchen looking updated!
