How Do I Refinish Around Stoves, Dishwashers And Other Appliances?
Mask stoves, dishwashers and other appliances with smooth painter’s tape. Be diligent about pressing in the edge to ensure none of the coating will bleed through. Place drop cloths over countertop surfaces and floors.
Do I Need To Remove Cabinet Doors And Hardware?
For best results, removing cabinet doors and all cabinet hardware is recommended. It will be easier to get a smooth finish when coating the doors while they are Laying flat.
Can I Change Out My Cabinet Hardware?
Yes, changing out cabinet knobs, pulls and handles is a great way to update and continue your transformation. Be sure to purchase new hardware prior to starting the Cabinet Transformations® application process. Check to see if new or different holes are needed. Fill all holes not needed with plastic wood filler. Allow to dry and sand smooth to the surrounding areas. Once holes are filled, follow the normal Cabinet Transformations™ application process.
Do I have to prop up my cabinet doors during the application process?
Yes, it makes the process much easier. Drive two drywall screws into a two by four. Set two of these on your worktable to support each door and to make the sides of your doors easier to coat.
Should I Paint the Inside of My Cabinet Frames or Drawers?
It's up to you. Each kit contains enough Bond Coat to effectively cover the front and back of each door and the frame of the cabinet. If you would like to paint the inside of your cabinets or drawers, you will need to purchase an additional Cabinet Transformations kit. It is recommended that all cabinet frames, doors and drawers be coated with two even coats. To ensure a clean, even look, tape the insides edges of each cabinet frame with smooth painter's tape. Be sure all edges are pressed down to ensure that none of the coating will be able to bleed through.
