Beyond Paint Review – No Prep Needed!

If you are ready to makeover a piece of furniture or paint cabinets in your home and you don’t want to have to sand and prime first, consider using Beyond Paint All-In-One paint instead of regular oil or water-based paint.

Recently I revealed how I made over my laundry closet. I used maps on the walls as wallpaper and told you I would share how I painted the cabinets. I have used a lot of different high quality, brand name paints over the years and am always game to try something different.

Beyond paint review

To paint the cabinets in the space, that is what I did, used a new to me product. After reading a Beyond Paint® review online I wanted to try the all-in-one paint out for myself.

I ordered two colors of the paint to try. Bright White and Licorice. I used Bright White to transform these wood stained cabinets in my laundry closet.

Product Overview: What is Beyond Paint All-In-One Paint?

If you haven’t heard about Beyond Paint, in a nutshell it is an all-in-one style paint that combines primer, bonder, and sealer together in one product. Once cured and dried it has a very durable and washable surface.

It doesn’t require any sanding, stripping or priming, so it is minimal prep work for you requiring less effort and less time to get the paint job done.

Beyond Paint is water-based, non-toxic with extremely low VOC’s with no odor. It can be used both on interior and exterior projects and does not fade.

The paint covers well and can be used indoors and out and will stick to virtually any surface that dries to a professional grade finish.

You can buy it in a kit that comes with everything you need from a paint tray, roller and chip brush which makes the paint even easier to use.

If you want a low sheen, semi-matte finish that is fast and easy to apply, and durable when cured, you will love the paint.

What Surfaces Can You Use Beyond Paint® On?

Beyond Paint® will bond to almost any clean, dry, grease, oil, and wax free household surface without sanding stripping or priming! These surfaces include raw wood, or wood painted with oil, latex, polyurethane, varnish, epoxy, etc.

How to Prep a Surface When Using Beyond Paint®?

The only thing you need to do before painting with Beyond Paint is to make sure the surface is clean of dust, dirt, grease and is completely dry. This will ensure that the paint bonds with the surface.

The manufacturer recommends Simple Green cleaner or vinegar and water to do this. And specifically says not to use TSP to clean the surface.

Preparing the cabinets for painting took longer to do than the actual painting did. 

I first had to remove the old hardware pulls and fill in one hole leftover from the pulls on each door with wood filler since I was going to add glass knobs instead of pulls after I painted the cabinets.

Beyond Paint review

Once wood putty dried in the holes, I sanded the filler smooth, cleaned the cabinets with a vinegar and water mixture to degrease and then let them dry.

Since I was being a teeny bit lazy, I painted the cabinet doors in place. I didn’t remove them like I did when I painted my kitchen cabinets.   

Easy Application and Clean-Up

If you want a quick and easy way to transform a piece of furniture or your cabinets, this is your paint.

Beyond paint on cabinets in a laundry room

It was the fastest and easiest paint I have ever used, plus clean up was a breeze using a mild soap, a sponge and water.

How to use Beyond Paint

I used a little more than half of a quart of paint to paint both sides of the 4 cabinets. Since I was using the color white over the dark cabinets, I needed 3 coats.

If using a dark color paint, you would probably need only 2 coats.

Once the paint cures which can take a few days to a month depending on the humidity in the air, it is very durable and can be scrubbed to clean.


I replaced the cabinet pulls with new glass knobs from D Lawless Hardware. I also replaced the old crusty hinges to shiny new white ones.

If you missed my post about how I used maps to wallpaper the walls, you can read all about it in this post. DIY Map Wallpaper 

I am happy with how the painted cabinets came out, the paint did exactly what it states on the label.

Should I Use a Paint Roller or Paint Brush When Painting With Beyond Paint?

Using a roller or brush is a personal choice and either can be used.

If you are picky about texture, you should use a flocked foam roller with rounded ends. The rounded ends on a roller leave no roller marks and the flocked styled foam will provide a smooth finish.

I didn’t use one of these rollers. I used a microfiber roller that came in the kit. It left a slightly textured finish – but beautiful.

The company recommends using a roller over a brush, and to use a brush to stipple or mush the paint into creviced areas and roll it over, or just brush everything on if you prefer that finish.

Where Can I Buy Beyond Paint All In One?

You can shop and purchase Beyond Paint at Home Depot, and Lowes. It can also be bought online at HSN and Amazon. To see the entire line check out the Beyond Paint website where you can also see all the colors the paint comes in.

Beyond Paint All In One Paint Review Update

From time to time I like to add an update to my project posts I have written here on my blog:

It has been a few years since I painted these laundry room cabinets. The paint is remarkable… super durable.

The cabinets look perfect, even after getting daily use since I store all sorts of items in them besides just laundry items. The durability of the paint cannot be beat.

Can Beyond Paint Be Used Outside?

Yes – Beyond Paint can be used both on interior and exterior projects. For outdoor projects, you can add Beyond Paint Multi-Purpose Sealer.

Can I Put Polyurethane over Beyond Paint?

If you want an extra layer of protection, you can use a water-based polyurethane over Beyond Paint or Beyond Paint Multi-Purpose Sealer. This isn’t really needed as the paint has a sealer in it already.

Beyond Paint is an all in one product. It contains a primer, paint and sealer all in one formula. It has a low-luster finish. Very durable and easy to wipe clean.

Chalk Paint does not need a primer, but for furniture it needs to be sealed with polyurethane of soft wax to protect it. Without the addition of a sealer the paint is very flat and will show smudges and fingerprints. It is not easy to clean when not sealed.

The paint goes a long way since you only need thin coats. 1 gallon of Beyond Paint covers 200 square feet. A pint jar covers 50 square feet.

  1. can i paint the laminate floor to my bathroom?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Bertha – You can paint a laminate floor, but it has to be prepped correctly if you want the finish to last. I have only used Beyond Paint on cabinets and furniture. I do not think I would use it for flooring. You would be better off using a bonding primer or multi-purpose primer first, then use porch and floor paint in the color you like. Most major brands of paints sold at the home improvement store have each of these. The key to success is roughing up the finish on the floor first with 60-100 grit sandpaper. You just need to rough the finish up a bit so the paint has something to adhere to. No need to sand the finish totally off. Clean the floor well and rinse any detergent or cleaner off well and let dry completely. Then apply the primer in one light coat, let dry and add one more light coat. Do not roll it on thick. More light coats are better for adhesion. for both the primer and the paint. For more guidance, see these posts: and this one:

      If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

  2. Can beyond paint be used over ceramic tile counter top?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Lisa – I am not sure about Beyond Paint being used successfully over a ceramic tile countertop. The best place to ask is on the Beyond Paint website: You can also call them between Monday – Friday, 9AM to 5PM EST – Phone: 866-266-0650 – Email:

  3. it says it takes 30 days to fully cure, and that’s how long you should wait to use

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Lisa – Paint does take time to cure. If you can’t wait the full time – just make sure to be gentle with the surface until it is fully cured. I didn’t wait 30 days to use my cabinets and they are fine.

  4. Sara Rogge says:

    How long did you wait to put the hardware on? I just painted with Beyond Paint, waited overnight, and ruined the paint when I put a knob on. So I’ve held off on the others. Just wondering how many days is good enough to wait before adding them! Thanks!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Sara – Overnight should be plenty, but drying time depends on how many coats were applied, how thick or thin they were applied and the temp/humidity in the air. I would wait at least another day if adding hardware messed up the finish. Press the finish with your finger. If the paint gets a depressed mark, it is not dry underneath. It may take a few days if this is the case.

  5. What about tannis or bleed through. Is this a primer and paint in one so this is not an issue

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Jane – Beyond Paint is a primer and paint in one formula. I painted over old stained cabinets and did not have any bleed through. I painted these cabinets a few years ago and they are still very white – no color change.

  6. I’m about half way through with painting my cabinets bright white & I like it too. I did take the doors off. I could see doing 3 coats but I don’t need it to perfect coverage. I think any imperfections with just flow with my farmhouse style 😀.

  7. Can you use beyond paint in a sprayer?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Amanda – Yes, Beyond Paint can be sprayed using an HVLP system or airlines system using the wider nozzle.

      The paint is water-based and thicker than regular paints, but dilution with water should not be necessary if a wide nozzle is used.

  8. Rita Turner says:

    My dresser, came out blotchy/streaky any idea what might have happened or what I can do to fix it? I used simply green to clean and put on 2 coats of beyond paint.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Rita – Sorry to hear that your dresser came out streaky. I have two questions to help figure out what went wrong. Did you rinse the Simple Green cleaner off with clear water and let dry before painting? If not, the residue could have caused the paint to come out streaky. Secondly, Did you stir the paint well and again throughout painting? If you did both, then I am not really sure what could have happened. What type of brush or roller did you use?

  9. Am looking to paint my kitchen cabinets AGAIN. A few years ago I used another paint that claimed to be the best cabinet paint available. Not so. I was very disappointed with it’s durability. So my question to you is, how long ago did you paint your laundry cabinets with Beyond and how has the durability been? Also, are you in any way compensated for your review by Beyond Paint?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Ellen –

      I like Beyond Paint and it has held up very well on my laundry room cabinets, but they don’t get the abuse a kitchen cabinet does, so I am not sure for a kitchen. The paint is very durable when it cures and my cabinets look perfect.

      I was not paid for the post, they did send me a jar of the white paint to try.

      What brand of paint did you use when you painted your kitchen the last time? I have painted a few kitchens and have always used Sherwin Williams Pro Classic. It holds up great. The real key to making any cabinet paint last is the primer step and painting in very thin layers. You can see how I painted my kitchen in this post.

      The paint looks as good today as the day I painted it. The only problem that has occurred over time is the two cabinets under the kitchen sink where the trash goes, get very dirty so I have to clean these cabinets a lot. I have also touched up along the top edge that gets water splashed on from the sink.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

  10. If I already painted with the chalk paint,can I use beyond on the top of chalk!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      hi Violet – If you didn’t wax over the chalk paint, then you can use Beyond Paint over it. I would go over with 100 grit sandpaper for about 5 minutes to knock down any sheen and clean and dry.

  11. Is it safe to use on baby furniture? I want to paint a changing table.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Anita – Yes I am pretty sure it is fine to use to paint a changing table as it is a water-based paint an no lead. If you want to find out what the actual ingredients are in the paint, you can contact Beyond Paint. I am sure they would be happy to help you. Email them at

  12. Do you thin this Beyond Paint is durable enough for a kitchen table top that gets regular use? Also, would the texture look/feel ok on a kitchen table and/or do you think the texture would make it hard to wipe/clean the tabletop? Thank you!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi MMK – Beyond Paint could be used on a kitchen table that gets a lot of use. It is very durable and just as good as any latex paint. I have been told by the company that if you brush the paint on, you won’t get the textured finish. If you do decide to paint it using a brush, get a high quality one from Purdy or Wooster. These are made well and will lessen the look of brush strokes.

  13. Is this all in one paint now branded as a Heirloom Traditions products? Just need to know if it’s the same paint please?


    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Lexi – Not the same as far as I know.

  14. Hi! Can you use Beyond Paint to paint over wallpaper? I have been doing a lot of research and some claim it works! Have you ever tried it? My walls (wallpaper) in my RV are ugly. I want to paint them with the Beyond Paint. Or do you have any other suggestions for easy painting? I don’t want to sand/prime, etc. Thanks!

  15. Getting ready to do inside of RV renovation by painting all wood. Wondered about durability and how it stands up to heat.

  16. Dawn Boyd says:

    I’m excited to have found you. I love easy and you explain it both ways on the type of finish you want.
    I can’t wait to see your licorice color when you paint something.

    I have a butcher block kitchen countertop that had stains and I was going to use a gel black stain ( you have to sand etc before painting etc ) but I’m going to use your suggestion Beyond Paint . I’m super excited.
    Thanks dawn Boyd

  17. Help! THe Beyond Paint is not working for me. I have spent the past couple days painting cabinets in my RV. I am on the 4th coat now because it still is not covering completely and I just realized I can easily scratch the paint right off the laminate part. What is wrong? I wiped them down ahead of time and even lightly sanded which I know wasn’t required. Any advice? Temp has been in the 70s-80’s, I let it dry the 2 hours in between coats. Don’t know what else I could do.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Brenda –

      It sounds like you did everything needed and the temp was just right. The only thing you didn’t mention was if you stirred the paint well before using. That could make a difference, but in your case, I think it is a curing issue. It may take the paint a few days to cure on the laminate. I would wait 3 – 4 days and then do a scratch test.

      If the paint still comes off after a few days, I would sand the laminate areas to remove the paint there and then clean the surface well. You could try again with Beyond Paint or I would buy a stand alone bonding primer like Glidden Gripper or KILZ Adhesion. These run about $23 a gallon. Use one or two light coats of this primer. Let dry overnight and then apply a coat of the Beyond Paint for color matching. Wait for the coats to dry a little longer – 6 hours and then add the next light coat until you get coverage.

      The people behind Beyond Paint are very responsive. They may be able to help pinpoint your issue:

    2. Can you see if Brenda has had success yet on using Beyond Paint in her RV renovation?

  18. Anne Hudson says:

    I am thinking of painting my spindles on my stairs. Do I need to strip them or sand them first??

  19. Sonia's Scrapbook says:

    I came across your website because I recently purchased Beyond Paint to refresh our kitchen cabinets. Except that in my case they were covered in thermofoil / melamine and as this lining was peeling, I decided to remove them all first. That left us with what is underneath which I recently learned is Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF.) This fact threw me for a loop because they have their own guidelines in terms of painting but as Beyond Paint claims no prep other than cleaning is required, it is what I went with. According to an article I found, since it is Acrylic paint it should be okay but we shall see. I happened to have purchased the black color “Licorice” so I have my fingers crossed. Painting is the next step.

  20. Shantel Henke Jones says:

    I am wanting to paint my kitchen cabinets. I have 5 children and need something durable but quick do you think this paint would work? I don’t love the texture but I would be willing to overlook that if it can be done quicker ;0)

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Shantel – I like Beyond Paint. It is very durable. If you want something quick, I would recommend it. Just make sure to clean the cabinets very well to get dirt and grease off. Let dry and then use 2 light coats, letting the first one dry completely before applying the second. Using a roller makes the process go faster, but you will see a slight texture in the surface when it dries. It is very durable. If you use a brush, it will take longer to paint, but the surface when dried will be smoother.

      1. Shantel Jones says:

        Thank you for the quick reply <3

    2. Terrise M Colaprete says:

      Can you mix regular chalk pain with Beyond paint?

      1. Diane Henkler says:

        Hi Terrise – I have never tried it, but it may work. If you have both on hand, try mixing a small amount of each paint with each other and see what happens. If it doesn’t clump or get hard, then it may be OK. Sorry I don’t have a definite answer for you.

  21. How is Beyond Paint in bright white holding up?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi LL – The cabinets I used Beyond Paint in Bright White look just as good as the day I painted them. No chipping or wear anywhere. Cleaning them is very easy with soap and water. If you are thinking about using it for durability – I can attest that it is very durable and would recommend it. I used a foam roller to apply the paint on my cabinets which gave the surface a slight texture – which at first I didn’t like, but now it doesn’t bother me at all as the cabinets look great. You can use a high quality brush to lessen the slight texture a roller adds.

  22. Melissa Martin says:

    Hi, I used Beyond Paint to do my bathroom cupboards and I love the look but I was disappointed that the paint chipped so easily — I’m wondering what I may have missed and if there is a simple fix for this not happening when I do my kitchen cabinets?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Melissa –

      So sorry to hear that your bathroom cupboard has chipped. Since I can’t actually see the surface, I can only assume that water got into the wood. When this happens, the wood expands and then dries and cracks causing chips to happen.

      The chipping could have also happened if the surface wasn’t completely dry when you first painted the cabinet or the paint never fully cured – which can happen if you live in a humid area. Also a bathroom – can be a humid damp place and the paint never fully cured.

      When painting your kitchen cabinets – Do some overall basis sanding ( not to the bare wood) with 100 grit sandpaper on a hand sanding block. after sanding. Doing this will help with adhesion. Make sure all dirt, dust, and grease are gone. When the cabinets are fully dry, then paint. Apply one thin coat, let dry and then apply another thin coat.

      Make sure to stir the paint well before using when applying every new coat of paint.

      Following these steps should keep any chipping from happening. Let me know how it goes.

  23. I read another blog post where the blogger used a foam roller and she got a much smoother finish however it took her three coats instead of 2 which I don’t mind if it’ll give a smoother finish. Has anyone tired this paint with a foam roller? Thanks.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Saba – I followed the directions that the paint brand recommended and have not tried painting with it using a foam roller. When I later spoke to the brand, they said to use a brush for a smoother finish. The paint is really durable and easy to use. If you have the paint, it can’t hurt to try using a foam roller or maybe even one of the new mix foam/microfiber rollers. Try it on a piece of scrap wood to see. I used this style roller on my kitchen cabinets with traditional primer and paint and the finish was really smooth. If you have not bought the paint, contact the brand and ask them. They will be able to tell you for sure. Here is their contact info:

      1. I read your co.ment, i have been looking for reviews on beyond paint to dk my kitchen cabinets, i wasn’t sure if i can use a priner furst to hive it a better coverage

        1. Diane Henkler says:

          Hi Teresa – I used the white Beyond paint and decided to prime first since I was painting over dark wood. I had bonding primer left over from when I painted my kitchen cabinets. With the Beyond Paint, you do not need a primer. I only used it since I only had a limited amount of Beyond Paint and didn’t want to run out. I knew I would need at least 2 coats of Beyond Paint, have the primer base gave me 3 coats.

    2. Yes I painted my bathroom cabinets with a high density foam rolled in bright white it looks great . I did it about 6 months ago.

  24. Wow, never heard of “Beyond Paint” – have an end table I really want to refinish because it’s a perfect size and height for where i need it, but the thought of sanding blah blah – well, let’s just say “ugh”. Your cabinets look amazing, by the way, and thanks for the update letting us know how well it’s lasting.

  25. Cora Anne McMichael says:

    Hi! Love your laundry room (and your entire house!) This paint looks amazing! I am about to order some (I will click through your website just in case you get a kick back) We have a lot of furniture that we need painted quickly. This seems to be the best option, would you agree? I am curious how it is holding up to everyday use. The reviews on Amazon are quite mixed. Would you mind giving a a quick update on its wear? Thanks!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Cora Anne – The paint has excellent adhesion and looks great. I can wipe off fingerprints and dirt easily. The finish is durable, no chipping at all. The only negative I have with the paint is that when you roll it on, it has a slight texture. If you brush the paint on you will get a smooth finish. the next time I use it, I will brush it on.

      1. Cora Anne McMichael says:

        Thanks! I don’t mind texture on any of these projects. I will place my order!

      2. Barbara J. Brooks says:

        That is so helpful. Thank you. I had almost decided that I would not use this paint since I do not want a texture, so I am glad I read the comments. Your laundry room looks lovely–I really like those glass knobs on the white cabinets.

      3. In the videos of the paint i thought they use a foam roller. It would take longer to paint kitchen cabinets using only a brush

        1. Diane Henkler says:

          I would use a roller, but try to find the new kind that says FLOCK FOAM. They are newer and the paint goes on smooth, better then a foam roller or basic nap roller. I bought mine at the Sherwin Williams store, but I am sure they sell them at any paint store.

  26. Diane Donofrio says:

    The beautiful blue background on the maps makes that laundry room come alive…now while you do your laundry, you can set sail around the world, and enjoy your daydreaming…looking at all the different places there are in the world….I love how fresh and vibrant the maps give this space, and create a nice ‘nestled’ feeling for the cabinetry and the washer and dryer…the blue ocean water in the maps ties in so nicely with the functionality of the space….and the clean white cabinets do now as well…now if you get laundry detergent with that ‘ocean breeze’ scent….you’ve hit the interior design jackpot!

  27. That looks amazing and I can’t believe it was so easy to do.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Vanessa – The paint is like no other I have ever used. Just like the name says. It is Beyond Paint. I am excited to try it on a piece of furniture next.

      1. Could you please tell me if the paint it’s still holding alright? I want to try it since the day you post it but the reviews are not good at amazon :o(
        Thanks in advance!

  28. Sonja Spiers says:

    Hi Diane, just wanted to say I’m finding your site one of the most informative on the web. I’m in Bundaberg, Australia (can you find me on your maps? ?? I’m on the eastern coast, near water, so I SHOULD be there ??) and am really loving your web site. I use your DIY CC Chalk paint recipe all the time. Thanks for the great info you share. Regards, Sonja

  29. Hi Diane, You’re going to have to take off those doors hiding your laundry area! It is fabulous! You blew me away with the map wallpaper and now these beautifully painted cabinets and your shiny white appliances against the color of the maps…wow! Why hide it? Only you…Diane, could create a “magazine worthy” laundry area.
    Recently I read a magazine article singing the praises of Beyond Paint. I wish I could remember the publication, but my memory is shot on thast point. My interest was piqued when I read about it and even more so now since you have used it and I can see what it looks like.
    How would you rate this for use on kitchen cabinets? We have a studio apartment in the lower level of our house for guests and the kitchen cabinets there are begging for new paint. Just wanting your opinion, I know your advice would be the best.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Judy – We may end up taking the doors off, but are still not sure since we do use the top of the washer and dryer to place stuff on from time to time. It can get a little messy looking. :-)

      Beyond Paint would be a great choice for kitchen cabinets since it is super durable. When rolled on it does have a slightest texture, it is not entirely smooth. If you want shiny cabinets, then I would not use it since the sheen is very subtle. I did learn from the company after posting about it, that you can use a brush to paint it on, but you will see show brush strokes. If you want once and done, the paint would be a good choice.

  30. mary wilson says:

    Thanks for testing the paint and sharing the close up so we could see the finish/texture. I so do not like the finish/texture and would only use the paint damaged walls.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Mary – The paint would hide imperfections well. I am thinking of using it on damaged walls in my upstairs bathroom.

  31. Diane,
    I love these products. I have painted two kitchens for clients, table and chair sets, vanities, you name it. The paint does hold up well. I would do a couple of coats on the darker colors. I painted a friend’s kitchen and her cabinets were dark and I painted them the creamy color and they are still holding up well after 3 years.

      Like your site very much. Love to paint. But, lent all my brushes to my older son & he can’t remember where they got to. Never loan out supplies again. Expensive mistake

  33. Kimberly Bruhn says:

    Hey Diane…do you think this paint would work on metal garage doors? I bought some ASCP in a darker gray to use but, whoops, used it on cabinets in our house instead. I just don’t want to have to buy one kind of paint to do the plastic(? I think?) trim around the windows and another kind on the door panels themselves.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Kimberly –

      I have only the paint so far on the cabinets, but on the product label it does state any surface inside or outside. I would ask the company since they would know for sure. Here is the link to their support page:

  34. Looks fabulous! Might have to give this a whirl whenever I get around to painting my kitchen cabinets!

  35. Sheryll $ Critters. says:

    I have never, ever seen a more beautiful laundry room!!! The map wall paper is cat’s meow! I would feel like a queen if I had half as gorgeous. I just wish mine had sheetrock and another light!

  36. Theresa Ball says:

    I just adore your wallpapered laundry closet. I think you must stand there looking at the maps – doing laundry – folding clothes – while amusing yourself about “all the places you’ll go.”
    Love your blog!

  37. Looks great! Love the idea of no sealing the finished product. Definitely going to give this one a try!

  38. It looks fantastic!! I too would love to know if a little goes a long way given the price?? Also, did you paint the inside of the cabinets or the back side of the cabinet doors?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi MK – Yes, a little does go a lona way. I used 1/2 a quart to paint the cabinets. If you use a darker color, you would probably need less. I did paint the back of the doors and thought I added that picture to the post. I will add it right now.

  39. Linda Weeks says:

    I heard about Beyond Paint on the Thrift Diving website, and looking it up, I saw that it was also beyond expensive! But if it does well with no priming or sealing or sanding, it may just be worth it! Did your paint go a long way or did you need many bottles to cover the cabinets? Thank you!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Linda – It is expensive paint, but a little does go a long way and since you don’t need to buy any other products like a primer or sealer, you would be saving money not having to buy 3 products. I just went to see how much paint it took since another reader asked the same question. I used a little more than half of a quart to paint the four cabinets inside and out.

  40. So bright and cheery. Great job, as always!

  41. ‘ Love the maps, and the paint is fine for a laundry room, but I’m not sure I’m crazy about the texture. However, I’m all for “easy” when it comes to doing cabinets. LOL Did you use a brush or a roller to do this job? Do you think it would make any difference in the texture between using a foam roller, brush, or fiber roller?

    I’m anxious to see a piece of furniture done with this paint. Where did you find it?

    Keep the ideas coming! I sure do love your work!

      Hi Tegmapat –

      I did try using a few different rollers, – foam, and cloth, but they all produce the same fine texture. It is the just how the paint is made. The paint is not made to be applied with a brush. If you do need to use a brush to go over a curved or carved area, you need to stipple/pounch the brush over those areas to cover. The paint is thicker than regular latex and totally different than the norm. You can buy the paint on Amazon, Home Depot and at the website.

      Thanks Susie – It is really quite a different style of paint. It rolls on easily and dries fast too. I am eager to see how the black color will look on a piece of furniture. I will keep you posted on that.
