How to Measure
Cabinet Transformations® comes in both a 100-Square-Feet and 200-Square-Feet kit size. To measure your cabinet project, use the following calculator or download measurement instructions to determine how many kits you will need.
Linear Feet
  • Measure the length of your top and bottom cabinets A + B + C + D = linear feet.
  • Each kit includes enough coating to cover 40-linear-feet of cabinetry with 2 exterior coats and 2 coats on the interior of each door and drawer face. Linear feet based on average height of standard wall and base cabinets being no more than 34-1/2" (2.4 feet).

Square Feet
  • Measure the length of your top cabinets (A + B) in inches and multiply times the height (E). Standard wall cabinet heights are: 12" – 18" and 30" – 42".
  • Measure the length of your bottom cabinets in inches (C + D) and multiply times the height (F). Standard base cabinet height is: 34-1/2" (2.4 feet).
  • Add these two totals together and divide by 144 to determine the total square feet you will need to cover. Each kit includes enough coating to cover 200-square-feet of cabinetry with 2 exterior coats & 2 coats on the interior of each door and drawer face.
  • This measurement excludes the inside of all cabinet frames.

Tips & Techniques
Make an easy project go even smoother with our helpful tips and techniques!
Before You Begin
TIP: Watch the instructional DVD. It's a helpful, step-by-step overview packed with information on how to easily transform your cabinets in a weekend.
Prepare for the Project
TIP: To fully transform your cabinets, consider new/updated hardware. You'll be removing old hardware to coat your cabinets, so this is a great time to select something new and complementary!
TIP: Using a cordless screwdriver to remove cabinet hardware will speed up the process. If changing the hardware, check to see if new or different holes are needed. Fill the holes that are not needed with wood putty or filler.
Application Tips
TIP: After applying the Deglosser, allow doors, drawers, and frames to dry 1 hour before applying Bond Coat.
TIP: Avoid drips when applying the Bond Coat, apply in even coats. Drips may be cleaned up with water.
TIP: For flat panel doors use up-and-down vertical strokes when applying the Bond Coat. Use side-to-side horizontal strokes on drawers.
TIP: Allow Bond Coat to dry 2 – 3 hours between each coat. It is critical to let each coat dry to touch. Dry times may vary depending on temperature and humidity levels.
TIP: The Decorative Glaze will stay workable for up to 5 minutes.
TIP: Allow the Decorative Glaze to dry for a minimum of 8 hours before applying the Protective Top Coat.
TIP: The Protective Top Coat dries quickly - do not rebrush previously coated areas that have started to dry.
TIP: Allow to dry 12 hours before installing cabinet doors and drawers. Allow 24 hours before full use.
