January is typically when the month when homeowners look around their Home, and start planning Home Renovations. You may be living with an outdated Kitchen, and would like to update it, but may not have the budget for a complete redo. Perhaps you want to put your house up for sale in the Spring. Normally we would hold Kitchen Cabinet paint classes in January, so you can learn about the whole process. You do not want to be practicing on your Cabinets. So we have put together an 'Ugly Duckling" DIY at-home kit, with everything you need to paint a Cabinet door.
The biggest first step is Cleaning your cabinet doors, and drawer fronts. We recommend using Cottage Paint Furniture Clean and Prep. Pay close attention to cleaning around handles, raised edges, and the parts of the cabinet door which gets handled the most.

If your doors are very dirty, you may have to clean them 2 or 3 times. Paint will not adhere well to a dirty surface.
There are 3 types of Cottage Paint - Expression, Serenity and Reflection. The above finish which is distressed, and stencilled, is Cottage Paint Expressions. This cabinet is 30+ years old, and gets a lot of traffic in a Mudroom. The most popular Kitchen Cabinet colour is White. White is not for everyone, it shows up every bit of dirt and every spill. We have curated our 16 most popular Cottage Paint Cabinet colours here: https://iwindowshop.ca/collections/cottage-paint/products/kitchen-cabinet-paint-package.
If you want a modern, solid look, as in the photo above, you need Serenity Cottage Paint. Colours like Driftwood, and Anchor will be easier to take care of.
This kit will have a wooden cabinet door which you will paint, like the door above, it is indeed, quite ugly. Kitchens are busy places in the Home, they get a lot of use, and food often spills on the cabinet doors.
Your kit will contain 1 Furniture Clean and Prep, Serenity or Expression Paint, along with a roller and brush kit.
Instructions will be included, and a list of resources for Painting your Kitchen or Bathroom Cabinets.
As we all want to stay safe ( no in-person Classes), we are introducing our UGLY DUCKLING Cabinet Door Makeover DIY Kit. Included will be a wooden cabinet door, Cottage Paint cleaner, 1 can of Cottage Paint, a Roller & Brusk kit, with instructions. You need to make 2 decisions:
-do you prefer a solid painted look, or a distressed finish?
- what colour do you want to paint your Cabinet door?
