FAQ-Project Cabinets

I want to paint my cabinetsPainted Bathroom Cabinets

BB Frösch Paint Transformer gives you the ability to take on projects like kitchen and bathroom cabinets affordably and with a professional-looking outcome.

However, we recommend a couple of things first:

  1. Consider taking the Ultimate Guide to Painting Cabinets online workshop! In addition to valuable tips and tricks that will save on frustration while building confidence, you will learn several methods for painting and sealing so you can best decide which approach(es) meet your needs. All this in an online setting that will help make a project like this enjoyable and professional looking.

  2. If you’ve never chalk painted before, start with a smaller project to get a feel for how to make chalk paint work in your favor. There are many methods and techniques for achieving different looks. Practice will give you an opportunity to discover what suits you best.

  3. CLEAN your cabinets WELL! Use a de-greaser! Cabinets can be challenging to bond to, not because of the material of the cabinets, but because surface dirt and grease create a layer between your paint and the surface which means your paint is bonding to the grease, not the cabinet.

  4. Don’t be chintzy on your powder. Use a little extra, even double to recommended amount, to aid in bonding.

  5. Seal your work! Cabinets are a high traffic area so we recommend at least two coats of BB Frösch Premium Finishing Wax or polyurethane/polyacrylic.
