    All that work and a boob light over the sink!!!! When I see that I instantly think “cheap”!!

  2. NXTCHP FORME on August 7, 2020 at 12:52 am

    7:09..get to the point. ..rambling about handles..

  3. jordania moore on August 7, 2020 at 12:53 am

    The difference between the paints is that the added urethane bonds into the wood like a furniture stain. The other paint is for more porous surfaces like drywall that readily accepts the paint.

  4. Sylvia Soto on August 7, 2020 at 12:54 am

    Curious….why is this video only about the cabinets? If it’s a remodel you should include what you did to the countertops and the price.

  5. Aqsa Chaudhry on August 7, 2020 at 12:54 am

    Kevin, have you tried chalk paint on cabinets ? I am thinking about a kitchen cabinet makeover using chalk paint as it saves time again from the sanding but not sure about how it will look once finished. Also will the brush stokes show on chalk paint ?

  6. NXTCHP FORME on August 7, 2020 at 12:54 am

    11:34..use from.primer..ramble.

  7. Stephen Baker on August 7, 2020 at 12:54 am

    Thank you for the helpful advice we are trying to save some $$ and the last two videos were great.

  8. Omar Galvan on August 7, 2020 at 12:54 am

    Can anyone let me know if the course is worth it. Also, if it does how has it helped you start or be where you’re at ?

  9. Bob on August 7, 2020 at 12:55 am

    You didnt take the hinges off, but did you remove the doors before painting? Thanks.

  10. MrCougar214 on August 7, 2020 at 12:56 am

    Sorry but your remodel vids are seriously misleading. $245 bucks would cover the cost of paint and MAYBE the door/draw pulls. Not everyone has a $10k credit card they can throw a new range/hood on and it cost them nothing up front.

  11. FPM on August 7, 2020 at 12:58 am

    Hey Kevin – thanks for the awesome videos! What kind of counter tops do you recommend to install in rentals?

  12. John Johnson on August 7, 2020 at 12:58 am

    Misleading title. Never shut up. Process not shown. I don’t give a crap about your course. Take your downvote.

  13. louie Rockefeller on August 7, 2020 at 12:58 am

    Dont go to IKEA

  14. Romy on August 7, 2020 at 12:59 am

    I really enjoyed this one! Our daughter just did the same thing to our weathered oak cabinet kitchen! Someone had broken into our home and left a door open which caused wood damage but it was only surface. So much work was created by this but we are doing it ourselves…. We are fixing up our cabin home which has a panoramic open water view…on an island in WA state with no stores or businesses…yep you have to own a boat to live there or take the very limited ferry rides for groceries etc. Its 5.5 nautical miles from Everett. We get everything budget for our home including like new used appliances! Yes we redid our entire kitchen with new paint, a like new dishwasher and spent a whopping $80 for an overhead stainless steel fan/light combo,. Our counters are in good shape so we saved them as is…our kitchen was transformed just like you suggest for so cheap! For now we are using the fridge there but have to repair the flooring below the vinyl before we replace it. I agree with you completely…reuse, repurpose and redesign saving as much as you can!

  15. guchol negro on August 7, 2020 at 1:00 am

    So the labor is free or what, you are super skilled

  16. Shawna Batteford on August 7, 2020 at 1:00 am

    Loved this video! How much was the sink faucet, built in microwave, and range?

  17. CrazyShyt on August 7, 2020 at 1:04 am

    So basically this video is about him cutting corners because someone else will live there and he doesn’t give a fukk.

  18. Rebecca Lopez on August 7, 2020 at 1:07 am

    You could DIY epoxy that countertop too instead of buying real stone.

  19. Bruce Haas on August 7, 2020 at 1:08 am

    Can you do a good video of you spray painting equipment and how to get a good look. I have owned and worked on rentals for over 18 years and every time I have tried to spray paint it always go’s bad. So I normally just roll and brush

  20. iHEARTamplify on August 7, 2020 at 1:09 am

    he spent thousands on this kitchen. $245 on the cabinet paint…

  21. Tina Brown on August 7, 2020 at 1:10 am

    So did you take down the cabinets to spray paint them?

  22. Roy Morris on August 7, 2020 at 1:10 am

    Kevin, I am a fan but $245? you didnt paint on new counter tops, range, vent Hood? was the $ 245 just paint?

  23. #1Imaginaryhomegirl on August 7, 2020 at 1:11 am

    Can you recommend a good paint sprayer?

  24. Leslie Dugger on August 7, 2020 at 1:11 am

    Most kitchens have WAY too many cabinets

  25. Barbi Bimbo on August 7, 2020 at 1:11 am

    I cant believe it takes this guy 15 minutes to say: remove the hardware (except hinges), use a good primer, use a good paint. Oh………My………..God……Verbal……Diarrhia.

  26. Media Production Pro on August 7, 2020 at 1:13 am

    In Austin, repainting cabinetry typically runs $2400-3800. I’m guessing you must have done this all yourself and skipped sanding and priming… how did you do this for under $250?

  27. Adriana Marie on August 7, 2020 at 1:15 am

    ugly attitude

  28. Shadow Walker on August 7, 2020 at 1:16 am

    Click bare ads hole. Told me shit I knew. Plus all that counter, range ,microwave handle hardware ect cost $$$$

  29. NtoHealth on August 7, 2020 at 1:16 am

    I would of liked to see the floor updated too

  30. momo mimi on August 7, 2020 at 1:18 am

    Awesome Video and information, but I would have love to see the actual process, like a time-lapse and how did you find someone who removed mortar bed tile counter tops without destroying the base cabinets?

  31. JKtheChosen on August 7, 2020 at 1:18 am

    What about the countertops though

  32. Eddie3074 on August 7, 2020 at 1:19 am

    What sprayer do you use for the base layer and top coat?

  33. Alex Gianos on August 7, 2020 at 1:21 am

    What do you use/ recommend for a paint sprayer. I have heard seen a lot about Wagner recently but i would be more interested in quality i think.

  34. Nazr Irfan on August 7, 2020 at 1:21 am

    Can you please mention the sprayer brand and type. Or paste the link for it.

  35. A A on August 7, 2020 at 1:24 am

    What about labor cost?

  36. c Davis on August 7, 2020 at 1:26 am

    I bought a house where the previous owners painted the cabinets and they did a crappy job so now I’m going to remove the paint and repaint them. I’ve painted cabinets before and used a brush with no brush strokes. I also removed the hinges and it looks much better. Agree with primer and paint choices. I will paint white but my counters will be butcher block. Fortunately my appliances are fine.

  37. Samuel Blount on August 7, 2020 at 1:30 am

    What paint sprayer do you recommend?

  38. renee harrison on August 7, 2020 at 1:31 am

    How much did the nice black handles on all the doors?

  39. Eduardo Tijerina on August 7, 2020 at 1:31 am

    Thanks G

  40. GravityGamerXCII™ on August 7, 2020 at 1:32 am

    LMAOO $200 doesn’t even cover the paint what a load of crap what about the counter top?

  41. Zhen Qi on August 7, 2020 at 1:33 am

    Man, what a misleading title…

  42. Trevor Cathey on August 7, 2020 at 1:34 am

    We need more videos like this. Perhaps a series going through cheap alternatives for each room.

  43. Ricky Ryan Ray on August 7, 2020 at 1:36 am

    Hahaha kitchen remodel? You spent $245 painting the cabinets. However you spent thousands on the flooring, counter tops and appliances. This, sir, is not a $245 kitchen remodel. This is a click baiting video.

  44. Gotmath8 on August 7, 2020 at 1:36 am

    You showed me the specific products you used and talked about your experience with them. It felt like getting real talk from a friend who has done this before and is trying to help. Right there you surpass every single DIY show ever. You got the sub. Loved this video.

  45. dan gom on August 7, 2020 at 1:37 am


  46. Ay D on August 7, 2020 at 1:42 am

    Pretty kool ideas…i will use this on the next house

  47. DV on August 7, 2020 at 1:44 am

    you literally didnt talk about the new counter top you put in…. so $245 is not accurate

  48. CaedenV on August 7, 2020 at 1:45 am

    We use to resurface bathtubs and counter tops with a spray-on 2-part epoxy paint (no idea what brand, it was purchased wholesale with company branding). While it was nice a durable (and cheap!) to use on tubs and counters, it looked awesome on cabinets. And because it was an epoxy, you really had to try hard to chip or peel the stuff.
    General workflow:
    1) Remove all the things! Handles, stoves, etc. It it isn’t bolted down, then it has to go!
    2) Paper and tape to cover everything that you don’t want paint on. We used a HVLP sprayer, so paint got everywhere
    3) Repairs; Normal bondo to fix chips or gouges, and fiberglass bondo for holes or larger repairs. Sand it down when you are done and hope the texture isn’t too bad of a miss-match
    4) De-Grease/Sand; We mostly worked in really bad section 8 apartments, so we often had to find the wood under all the grease and grime, and a light sanding just to give a little extra grab, but due to the paints used, we didn’t spend more than an hour sanding.
    5) Wipe-Down with pint thinner or a damp cloth. Don’t want all the dust to prevent stuff from adhearing
    6) Primer; We used lots of different primers, but I think mostly Killz? Again greasy apartments… gotta cover thick!
    7) Paint; Dust coat, and let partially cure, and then 2 real coats. Between the kilz and epoxy paint, it was pretty rare for any marker or things to bleed through
    8) Cleanup; Once it was dry (which took all of 10 minutes) then you pull the paper and tape off. If you put it all on right, this part takes no time at all!

    First time doing this took me ~12 hours. After I had done 4-5 of them I had it down to ~6 hours (Paper and tape applicaiton and removal is really the time waster, everything else goes quick), but I was slow, some of the guys had it down to 4 hours and had a better looking product than me! Half a day for new looking cabinates was pretty satisfying… hated that job though. Working in IT is a much better fit for me, but I am glad I know how to do it, because I have done something similar to my house, so that was kinda great.

    is that an app that lets you create your own 3d tours? what is it?
