After all was done, I ended up with just under half a gallon of the milk paint left and was really surprised at how much coverage I got out of the paint. I did both the front and backs of all the cabinet doors and, of course, all the frames too. I took the doors off the hinges and sanded them down lightly before wiping clean and applying the first coat and did all the frames before mounting the doors back on. I put three to four coats of the milk paint on everything.
I used a good foam brush (or several of them) as suggested by the manufacture and I followed all their drying and reapplying directions. This was not something I wanted to redo after a few months of wear so I made sure I was doing it right the first time. I had doors everywhere for a couple of weeks while I let them all get good drying time in. Thankfully, I was able to find space in my house where they could be stored without my children's little fingers leaving their marks on them.
I did completely empty all my cabinets before lightly sanding down the frames. I used that time to then wipe them all out nice (we had been in the house two years at that point so it couldn't hurt to give them a little attention) and then I put everything back in them before painting the frames. I didn't paint the inside of the cabinets but left them the original color. I went back and forth on this but after some more research and just general asking around this seemed the best, and easiest, way to go.
I finished off all my painted areas with General Finishes Clear Top Coat. That stuff is also amazing! The paint is so thick but it doesn't clump or dry unevenly. I did three coats of the top coat on everything. It added a beautiful sheen to all my doors, drawers, and frames and is a great protectant!
It has been a year since I finished the kitchen now and everything has held up beautifully! We have three children and host very often, not to mention that I spend most of my time cooking and baking, so our kitchen gets a lot of wear but I haven't had to go touch up any of the paint. Nothing seems to be worn or rough and I am a super perfectionist so things like that would stand out to me like a sore thumb.
I added some pictures below so you could see the difference and little bit of the process. You can see in one image the cabinets before the top coat was applied and a couple of the other pictures show you the original wood over the new painted wood. Also, one picture has just a single coat of the milk paint verses the final result of three coats and two top coats. Don't worry about the right bottom cabinet on side. I had found some mold behind it in that area and behind the dishwasher so I ended up tearing the wall apart and rebuilding it and then replacing the cabinet with a new one. It had nothing to do with the painting process. I did some other things to the kitchen to improve the look other than just the paint too. I raised the molding up higher and added trim to cover the seals, I added bead board to the island and all the cabinet ends, I added molding around the island and to the bottom cabinet ends, as well as replaced all the hardware. People are amazed when they come over and can't believe the transformation and that I did it all myself. I have a whole new kitchen and the complete project only cost me about $400.
