Beyond Paint All-in-One Refinishing Paint, No Sanding, Matte Finish for Cabinets, Countertops, Furniture and Doors, 1 Quart, Bright White
About this deal
Before painting your kitchen cabinets, you’ll need to deconstruct them as much as possible. Remove the doors and drawers, as well as hardware, then set up a sanding station outside. Using 120 to 180 grit sandpaper, lightly roughen the front surfaces and visible edges. You don’t need to sand off the old paint entirely; you just want to roughen the surface to give the new coat of paint a clean base to grip to. Remember to wear a dust mask and safety goggles.
All-surface uniquely formulated paint solution: Easily refinish furniture, cabinets, countertops, doors, trim, floors and more Taking a few minutes to spray a test panel can save you significant time and money by avoiding repainting .BEYOND PAINT is a special paint that bonds, primes and seals all in one step. The time it took to finish this project was drastically reduced. In fact, I think it’s the fastest I’ve ever painted a piece of furniture! As noted, satin and semi-glossy finishes tend to be easier to clean than flat and matte paints. But many interior paints are also formulated specifically to be easy to clean, which is crucial for splatter- and fingerprint-prone kitchen cabinets. For instance, Sherwin-Williams and Glidden boast scrubbable formulas, and Benjamin Moore paint features a special stain-release technology.
The application process for this kit is much more involved than the other products we've featured in this roundup, but Giani provides incredibly detailed instructions to guide users through the experience. Although daunting, we can appreciate the freedom that comes with creating your own "granite" sponge pattern across countertops. The high-shine finish is comparable to real granite, making this kit even more worth the effort. Keep in mind that the layers require 24 hours to dry to the touch (refrain from using your dishwasher during this time) and you can replace light appliances on your kitchen countertops after 3 days. The full cure time is 14 days, which is incredibly long, but ensures the formula completely dries and seals to withstand regular wear. Since this is a water-based formula, you can only use soap and water to clean it, and prolonged water exposure can result in the top coat dissolving. If this happens, allow the area to dry fully before touching it, and then reapply the top coat. I’d seen many YouTube videos showing the application of Beyond Paint on furniture, cabinets and cupboards and even tile floors. Emma Phelps, an Updates Writer for The Spruce, revised this article to reflect the latest products available for DIY countertop refinishing. To better understand application methods, Phelps conducted extensive research on popular kit brands, necessary tools, dry time, and coverage possibilities.
