After transforming the cabinets with Rust-Oleum
We have used Rust-Oleum about three years ago to transform our front porch, and love the results. Due to our trust in their products my husband and I undertook a DIY project during the holidays using the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformation kit. Using this kit to transform the kitchen cupboards to our preferred colour is less costly compared to changing the entire cupboards or doing messy demolitions.
