Kitchen Makeover Using Bauhaus Buff One Step Paint
Amy Howard At Home Contributor, Tamara Hudson, gives you all her tips for transforming kitchen cabinets!
Step One: I used a white lint free rag with Clean Slate to clean all the surfaces to be painted...including inside all of the cabinets and drawers.
Step Two: I painted 2 coats of Bauhaus Buff on everything, inside cabinets, drawers, the bases, the doors inside and out and the island.
Step Three: The home owner had an AWESOME IDEA!!! Since we were originally going to do a glaze on her cabinets but she decided to go with a solid fresh white...she decided to paint the INSIDE of all the cabinets and drawers with One Step Paint Atelier!!!! Oh my goddess, it's such a sweet surprise when you open a door!!! It puts Kandee's stamp on them and makes her SMILE!!!
Step Four: Using a large round brush I applied 2 coats of matte sealer to EVERYTHING. Anytime I am painting a kitchen I either glaze, apply matte sealer or wax because the one step paint is porous. I don't want it to soak up any messes I might make.
Step Five: The owner, Kandee, played around and did a GORGEOUS wash on her back splash to tie it all in.
Step Six: Waiting on the contractor to come install the new counter tops!!!
