Default cabinets

You might be able to do it yourself easily or would you rather just pay someone?

I think that would require you to strip off the white to get the glaze to adhere. Come on, Staci...just spring for the new cabinets you know you want to!!

Yes. if you have a smooth surface, no peeling paint or little bumps. When you glaze it will Magnify any imperfections in the finish. You will need to sand or steel wool the surface to remove any wax, kitchen grease residue or silicone from Pledge or other dressing products (lemon oil, oil soap, etc.).

Use a product that doesn't dry fast so you can wipe it off if you feel you have made a mistake.

If you use a dark color over white the contrast will be beautiful. Just don't thin out the product much and it will cover well. Experiment on a test piece.

Lay the doors flat rather than doing them while hung. It'll save your back and the paint won't run.

It's tedious and takes practice to do it as a pro..

In N.J. it will be pricey but I'm sure there are great artist in the area.

In S.C. I have no idea. I know that in So. Fla. it's hard to find good furniture artists.

Cabinet refacing is covering cabinets and doors with plastic laminate (formica) or wood veneer. Sometimes the frames are covered and new doors are installed wth new pulls. Kinda makes the cabinets look new
