  1. She said out of date those look like they be in date more than the white ones ????.

  2. It's a LOT harder than the video makes it out to be. It is impossible to get a clean smooth quality finish at a DIY level unless you spend $$$ on a contractor or use very expensive professional sprayer guns and paint.

  3. Spray people spray!!! Will save you hours alot of tapering off but will look better also

  4. Most of the videos, including this one, always introduce the "cleaning" step at first, then later sanding, etc. I personally believe this sequence instead: patching, sanding, cleaning, priming, sanding, painting, sanding, painting.. The "cleaning" first is 1000% a waste of time.

  5. Benjamin Moore has the best Primer( stix) and the best paint for cabinets (Advance) you do not want to leave brush nor roller marks on you cabinets. Don't ruin you cabinets pay a professional

  6. With each Cabinet I finish, a new experience I have. Years after years of experience with Cabinet Refinish, the conclusion is always perfect. Congratulations, a wonderful job.

  7. For the love of a smooth finish, DO NOT PAINT YOUR CABINETS LIKE THIS!

  8. That's a huge waste of that painters tape labeling cabinets & hardware. You could use sticky notes or plain old white notebook paper. Just wedge each piece in somewhere in the cabinet. And stick a piece of paper in folding sandwich bags or plastic grocery bags you can save. This video is an excuse to buy more painters tape at lowes
