DIY Cabinet Redo

When we bought our house a few months ago we did a ton of renovations:

  • All new hardwoods
  • New countertops/Backsplash/Cabinet paint in the Kitchen
  • New Fireplace Tile
  • New Tile/Cabinet Paint in the Master Bath
  • New Fence (which Dave built and its AMAZING)

But there were still a ton of things we wanted to do (the cabinets & tile in both of our other bathrooms, new carpet in all the bedrooms & upstairs, A renovation of the Office into a GIANT master closet, and an exterior makeover. Most of them will require contractors BUT I found this article on Pinterest where a woman redid her Kitchen cabinets without sanding and thought I would try it out in our 2 smaller bathrooms.


This is the paint that the article said to buy (I bought it in Snow White). The paint is supposed to be thicker and covert cabinets better without sanding. TBH I did not find this to be true. It took me 3 coats to cover the brown that the cabinets were before and in hindsight I kinda wish I had just sanded them and used regular cabinet paint.

The paint did end up covering it (you can still see some brush strokes or some “bluish” areas where the paint wasn’t as thick) and looking pretty good after 3 coast (you can see the progression above) and 2 coats of Acrylic Polyurethane. Now it was a SUPER fun way to spend part of my maternity leave and I LOVE knowing that I redid them myself.

Plus I LOVE the white so much more than the old brown. We’re going to have the tile redone in a few months and I can’t wait to see how it looks after its all done. This bathroom will have gotten a new mirror, new light fixture, new faucet & cabinet hardware + the paint and eventually new tile. Its so fun watching the room transform!


Ultimately my review is – Sand & use regular paint but if you can’t this Milk Paint is actually pretty good and the white DID cover the dark brown with 3 coats.
