Intro to Painting Cabinets

Whether you're here because your cabinets are dated and worn, or you're here because your cabinets are builder-grade and boring, rest assured, you are in the right place!

Maybe you've been inspired by Houzz and Pinterest cabinet makeovers like these:

The good news is, regardless of where you find inspiration, and what color you desire, you can transform your kitchen and bathroom cabinets without spending an arm and a leg to have someone else do it for you. Not only that, gone are the days of investing hundreds and hundreds of dollars on expensive pre-mixed chalk/mineral paint in a limited color palette. You can choose whatever brand of paint you prefer (take note of some of our favorites below the above photos) in the color of your dreams!

In this course, you will learn how to prep, paint and seal your cabinets affordably, in less time, in whatever color you choose, and with less effort than the old-school methods you may have heard of.


You will learn it all in this course. Lessons are divided by project type and application method. The first section is a bathroom cabinet makeover taught painting with a brush and sealing with wax. In the second section we teach how to paint and seal kitchen cabinets with a roller. The third section is a kitchen taught painting with a sprayer and sealing with poly. It goes without saying that any of these methods and cabinet types can be swapped out to meet your circumstances. In other words, any method of sealing can be used with any method of application, and any application method can be used for kitchen and bath (or laundry, office, etc.)

If you have your heart set on one application method or one sealing method, we still encourage you to check out the other lessons, because you will learn tips and tricks to make your cabinet painting experience the best it can be!

NOTE: BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder referred to in videos throughout this course is now called BB Frösch Paint Transformer. It's the same incredible powder with a new and improved name.
