Cabinet Transformations GIVEAWAY

March 4, 2011

Greetings all, TGIF!  The sun popped out and all of a sudden and I’m soooo wanting to visit the garden department this weekend to fill up some planters.  Spring fever has definitely set in! 

1306Announcing the winner of last weekend’s Campbell Hausfeld giveaway.  Over 1,500 entries, wow you peeps love power tools!  Guess who gets to choose either the brad nailer/compressor combo or a big bad 2 ½” finish nailer?  #1,306Mom in High Heels.  Congratulations!

Also, there’s a new blog I think you’ll love: Favorite Paint Colors.  I met Kristin in Nashville when this site was just getting started, and now she has a gallery with paint colors from rooms all across blog land.  It’s so helpful to see colors on real walls in real homes!

Hey, speaking of spring fever, are you in the mood for a DIY makeover in your own home?  Remember a few weeks back how I reviewed the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations kit?  Several of you have used this kit already (like Mallory and Sarah and Debbie) with fantastic results.  And so many more mentioned how you’d seen it at your local Home Depot or Lowes and really wanted to use it in your own homes. 

Here’s your chance to get your hands on one!

rustoleum cabinet transformations kits

The kind folks over at Rust-Oleum have offered to give away not one but two of these kits!  You can choose either the small Cabinet Transformations kit ($79 retail) or the large Cabinet Transformations kit ($149 retail). 

Rust-Oleum will tint it for you in your color of choice, or you can take it to your local Home Depot or Lowes and have them tint it for you to whatever color you love.  I can’t wait to get my hands on it later this spring for my hall bathroom cabinets!



Want the skinny on how easily this product works?  Read my full review.  

Some Home Depot employees recently tried it out, see their video here

And of course you can visit the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations website for full details, including their how to guide and instructional video

The kit is designed for kitchen and bathroom cabinets, but can also be used on other furniture, cool right?

  59. Julie says:

  60. Karisty says:

    What doesn’t need a touch up at my house. The bathroom and the kitchen both need it! I’d have to get my husband to weigh in and see which one should get the facelift first.

  61. Celia says:

    I have been working on my kitchen cabinets for the past few years – yes years – time and money always an issue. Initially I used some left over flat latex paint, after cleaning and sanding, but alas, something always comes up. When I was finished with the flat paint I was going to have to buy the semi-gloss to match. This product ROCKS! My kitchen cabinets are 25 years old and dark brown. My scheme is to lighten up the kitchen without making it cold and the Linen color would be perfect for the remodel of my kitchen. It would go well with the butcher block counters I’m going to install. Here’s hoping. Thanks!

  62. Bonnie says:

    My kitchen is in need of a major overhaul!

  63. Ashley says:

    My kitchen needs a new refreshed look and this kit would be just what it needs.

  64. Marla says:

    How many kits to do all the woodwork in an entire house?
    Wish I was LOL.
    Ah, but since I am only one person with two arms, will settle on just doing the kitchen, first.

  65. Kirin says:

    I would use it on my sister’s kitchen cabinets–ever since she bought her first home she’s been eager to change them, but it’s seemed too overwhelming. This makes it seem simple!

  66. Holly says:

    We have plans to re-do the cabinets in our kitchen and both bathrooms. We’d probably start with the kitchen first, though!

  67. Jenn M says:

    We live in a rental and I would LOVE to paint the ugly oak cabinets in our tiny kitchen white. I can’t imagine what a difference it would make to the entire space!

  68. Lori B says:

    I would use it in our guest bathroom that has the ugly builder grade oak cabinet. Can’t wait to try it!!

  69. Melanie S. says:

    I can’t decide where to start with this product! The guest bath, master bath or kitchen…they ALL need an update!

  70. Rachel C says:

    I would use it for my outdated bathroom cabinets. totally ugly room that needs a major color change!

  71. Erin B. says:

    The only room left on our 1st floor that needs a renovation! THE KITCHEN!

  75. Amber O. says:

    My poor kitchen cabinets are in dire need of a makeover!!

  76. Marriah says:

    I have a dresser from my room as a teen that’s in the blond oak wood color my mother (still) loves. The dresser is all wood and extremely sturdy so I hate to get rid of it but it doesn’t match my and my husband’s style AT ALL. This would be a perfect item to transform it into a beautiful piece that we’ll love for years! Now, which color should I choose?

  77. Tracey says:

    IN MY KITCHEN! It’s this ugly, oakey, nasty little place, that makes me feel like I’m cooking in a hunting lodge!

  78. Shannon says:

    My best friend is DYING to re-finish her kitchen cabinets and just can’t afford it right now.

  79. AshleyG says:

    Freakin in my bathrooms! The 90’s called and they want their gold back. Poor things need an update :(

  80. Sara says:

    I would totally paint the 1980’s “golden oak” cabinets in my kitchen!

  81. vksiev says:

    We have been going back and forth on painting our kitchen cabinets for TWO years. I am so nervous that we’ll botch it, but this seems like it would give me some piece of mind and courage to bite the bullet and DO IT!

  82. Lori V. says:

    Hello Kate,

    Because of your review a couple of weeks back, I went to HD to get a pamlet for this product so I could show my husband. I totally need to paint my kitchen cabinets until we can do a full-on renovation (probably at least 2-3 years off). The problem is my kitchen cabinets were “re-done” sometime during the 80’s with a horrible dark oak laminate veneer on top of the original wood! Since they aren’t even real wood shells anymore, I’ve been debating on painting them or leaving them until we could replace them. After your review, I was confident that this product would work and be an inexpenisve way to update a dark small kitchen for a couple of years.


  83. Jennifer says:

    Even though I love all things retro, I do not love my ugly brown circa 1970’s kitchen cabinets. I fantasize often about how cool they would look in a fresh new color like eggshell blue or a creamy off-white…sigh.

  84. Darla says:

    I would love to try this on my kitchen laminate cabinets that need to be warmed up a bit. Could be a huge money saver! If it works, I could recommend it to so many staging clients before they spend big bucks on a kitchen redo they never get to enjoy.

  85. Lani says:

    I would totally use this in my kitchen. I’m dying for an update from my builders standard finish!

  86. Lani says:

    Linked this on FB too!!!

  87. stacey says:

    Would definitely try this out on my super ugly, outdated, half real wood oak cabinets. I’ll try anything to extend the life of them since new ones aren’t quite in the budget yet!

  88. Wendy says:

    OHHHHHH!!!!! I NEED this!

    I would definitely redo my kitchen. Actually I am tentatively budgeting to purchase this and do it this spring. My cabinets are a grungy oak color and definitely need some attention.

  89. Katie says:

    OMG! I have had my eye on these kits for months. I desperately want to redo my kitchen cabinets. I’ve just been waiting for the weather to warm up and get my DIY juices flowing. Thanks for the giveaway.

  90. Molly says:

    I would use this is my master bathroom. It is rough looking in there!

  91. D'Arcy says:

    I would love to use this product in my kitchen and bathrooms!

  92. Jessica F says:

    I would use it to paint my bathroom cabinets!

  93. Diana says:

    My house is FILLED with oak cabinetry: kitchen, laundry room, two bathrooms and hallway. It is a builder’s delight! I’ve been wanted to tackle them all since we bought our house two years ago. I guess I would start in the masterbedroom. One bite at a time.

  94. Melissa K says:

    I would use it on my kitchen cabinets. Winning it would be just the motivation I need to move forward!

  95. Sunnie says:

    I had already planned to paint my kitchen cabinets the end of this month!! I don’t have any supplies yet, so winning this would be amazing! Thank you for the giveaway :)

  96. Emily says:

    I would definitely use it on my kitchen cabinets. We don’t want to spend the money on new ones since we do not plan on living here forever, but they can use some updating!

  97. My kitchen cabinets are wretched, and the bathroom vanity matches so I’d definitely paint those!
