Can't get enough of this kitchen transformation by Practically Hippie!   "Thank you General Finishes for helping to transform my kitchen! The "before" picture doesn't even seem like the same space.

"Out with the trendy white and back to the traditional classic cherry. (original cabinets were honey oak) I used equal parts of Brown Mahogany and Georgian Cherry to get the exact color I wanted. Loved the results so much, I am currently updating my railings as well. Easy to use, clean up was easy. Topped off with High performance top coat. Loving my new kitchen!!"

Quite the transformation with General Finishes Snow White Milk Paint!

 The builder grade oak cabinets are original to the home which was built in 2007. Solid cabinets so there’s no reason to rip them out when I knew I could transform them.

Prep is ESSENTIAL to ANY transformation! I removed all the doors, hardware and hinges. I normally use TSP but was out so I used my 2nd favorite cleaner, ‘Greased Lightning’. You name it, it gets it off!  I scrubbed them and used a tooth brush in the corners where nearly a decade worth of gunk was in. I rinsed them...

"This kitchen is a show stopper. I used General Finishes custom matched color called Cake Batter and GF Enduro Poly Satin Topcoat. The cabinets were brown, so I primed first, sprayed three coats of paint and sanded back between coats and then applied 3 coats of Enduro Poly."

Matthew Shearer gave his kitchen cabinets a fantastic face-lift using General Finishes Java Gel Stain topped with High Performance Top Coat.   

"Absolutely love the result, but I had to be quite patient in between coats of the Gel Stain. It took 2-3 days for the stain to completely dry but top coat only needed two hours dry time between coats. Next time I would spend a little more time making sure high use areas of the cabinets were extra clean and prepped. -Matthew   

MFG...

"What an incredible difference! It doesn't even look like the same space. We love the modern spin on farmhouse style.
