    I have that same brick in my kitchen and I white washed it and painted the grout white….the look is fabulous!!! with my newly painted white cabinets and new hardware.

    I have very cheap cabinets will this work on mine ?

  3. Milagros Fornet on January 13, 2021 at 12:17 am

    How do I clean my washing machine?

  4. Allie Hunter on January 13, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Did the primer keep cabinets from yellowing?

  5. Vita on January 13, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Perfect!

  6. Sawyer Ramos on January 13, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Yuuuuuuuuuuk! If u dont have the time to do it right please dont make a video about crappy work. Painting over the hardware, that paint will chip in a month. Home depot has paint with primer already mixed.

  7. Ronaye Tylor on January 13, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Kitchen looks excellent!

    I painted some doors and drawers in my kitchen with high-rated satin enamel, and it has not stood up regular use.

    I seriously need to repaint my kitchen cabinets. The previous owners painted them poorly and they are chipped. All the sanding I need to do to get the chipped paint off is keeping me from doing that project

  10. SUSAN PETERSON on January 13, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Brick needs a faux paint treatment and the countertops can be renewed with the Rustoleum Countertop Paint. Great start with the cabinets, looking forward to seeing more.

  11. Bea Ell on January 13, 2021 at 12:26 am

    I love that brick background. The cabinets turned out nice.

  12. Inez Sanders on January 13, 2021 at 12:28 am

    I have dark paneling on family room walls. I don’t want to remove or paint them. What are other options? Can I put paneling over paneling?

  14. Mermaid DIYArtist on January 13, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Looks great! If you donโ€™t want to paint hinges. Clean off with a special metal cleaner, then wipe with rubbing alcohol. Then tape hinges & use an exacting knife to have the perfect tape shape. Yes it takes longer but the hinges wonโ€™t be painted in. The other option is to take doors off but that takes a while. Itโ€™s the best way to do it.

  15. Innoversa on January 13, 2021 at 12:30 am

    CLEAN first THEN sand… Now you sanded the dirt and grease into the wood.

  16. Marcia Musiak on January 13, 2021 at 12:31 am

    looks nice bright and fresh

  17. Robyn Dismon on January 13, 2021 at 12:31 am

    When I saw that the doors and hinges were not removed I just clicked off.

  18. Emmy Guiang on January 13, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Hello hometalk, would you come to Ontario, Canada to help me upgrade my cupboards? Thank you

  19. Gay Preator on January 13, 2021 at 12:33 am

    I just couldnโ€™t get past -Painting- the hinges/hardware. The color did change everything. Love the simple cabinetry.

  20. Brenda Murray on January 13, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Can you not find paint that has primer in it?

  21. Sergio Leone on January 13, 2021 at 12:33 am

    My cabinet doors looked similar to these with the vertical grooves. Totally outdated. I made new shaker style doors over the summer, primed them with BIN, and painted them (3 coats) with Cabinet Coat paint. Came out great. I also filled in the hinge holes in the cabinets with wood putty, sanded them smooth and degreased them and painted them. The new doors got concealed hinges with the soft close feature and new hardware in oil rubbed bronze. The kitchen looks brand new. This job was kind of half assed by not removing the doors and hinges. Do it right, or don’t do it at all.

  22. Saadia Laureano on January 13, 2021 at 12:36 am

    I will never used again latex paint for cabinet..primer is good

  23. Aliaa Alsalmani on January 13, 2021 at 12:37 am

    So clean and looks nice.

  24. Mel Wee on January 13, 2021 at 12:38 am

    WOW, inspired to do up my dated kitchen cabinet as well…THX!!!

  25. Patricia Niedrich on January 13, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Too bad they didn’t take off the fake backsplash faux brick because it leaves a definite dated look. It would be easy to take it off, and if the walls are bad, to spray them either with wall texturizer, or put wallpaper over it. For what you saved on the cabinets, it would have been a nice touch to get a new countertop, and then your parent’s kitchen would look completed. All little touches add up to the finished look, but your family did a good job, and it looks great for now!

  26. Krissie Suter on January 13, 2021 at 12:40 am

    You should paint the brick white too

  27. Dezell Robinson on January 13, 2021 at 12:41 am

    Great transformation!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝโญโญโญโญโญ

  28. Maria Diaz on January 13, 2021 at 12:44 am

    I love it…I hope you do the top on a dark color to make it look even better

  29. Ms.Krueger on January 13, 2021 at 12:45 am

  30. MrGameFreak on January 13, 2021 at 12:47 am

  31. Sara Osman on January 13, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Good job guys๐Ÿ‘

  32. Semper Fidelis on January 13, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Painted over the hinges!!!
    Gahhhhhhhhhh

  33. Mermaid DIYArtist on January 13, 2021 at 12:50 am

    Great bones for the kitchen!! If youโ€™re looking to update the countertop, you could do it with Epoxy Resin. What color countertop would your parents want? There are specialty countertop brands on YouTube. One that I follow is Legari. It can make your countertops look high end. I havenโ€™t used them. So far Iโ€™ve used marble contact paper and a non yellowing uv resistant epoxy resin. It makes the countertop feel like marble. And itโ€™s waterproof. But if your parents want black or another color. Another cheap way of doing it, use a matte paint with fine glitter if wanted, then epoxy poured over.

  34. Cinnabon Bun on January 13, 2021 at 12:51 am

    That safe you $1800. I got a quote for my 13 pieces cabinet. They gonna spray paint instead. And watching your video . I m gonna do the same. Thanks 4 sharing.๐Ÿ˜Š

  35. J Burritt on January 13, 2021 at 12:52 am

    I love my medium dark oak cabinets.ย  We changed the counter top and back splash.ย ย  New floor too.ย  The cabinets look great.ย  We worked with them and came up with more beauty than we even dreamed of.

  36. Angelina on January 13, 2021 at 12:53 am

  40. mingbroadway on January 13, 2021 at 12:57 am

    You can buy paint with primer so you donโ€™t have to do it twice

  41. Nakagga Nusurah on January 13, 2021 at 12:57 am

  42. Amethyst Perez on January 13, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Nice jod!!! Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  49. NicolasCage ribcage on January 13, 2021 at 1:07 am

    So much white going on it reminds me of the time my fiance was in I.C.U. surrounded by so many white blankets, and the doctor walked in to tell me his organs were failing. I had to take him off life support because the massive stroke he had left him with severe brain damage. He wasn’t going to recover.

  50. Just Games on January 13, 2021 at 1:07 am

    The white was too much for that room
