Repaint Furniture with 1 Little Box!!!

HI friends!

I am SO excited to share this new product with you guys!

Most of the questions that we get asked each day are about repainting and revamping furniture.  One of our very favorite brands has answered all of those questions in one small box!

Our great friends over at Rust-Oleum have made such a great new product!

It’s called Furniture Transformations!  With the purchase of 1 box, you can rejuvenate outdated furniture pieces with a great, durable finish!  The best part?? No need for stripping, sanding or priming!! 

Now that’s my kind of product!  For those of you that have been here a LONG time, you may remember this chest of drawers I turned into a hutch!  I originally gave it a coat of blue, but a few scuffs later I turned it black.

When I heard about Furniture Transformations, I immediately knew this would be the piece I would try it out on!

This product is amazing.  You can paint just about any surface in 3-4 very easy steps.

Step 1 is a degreaser.  Simple.

All you do is use the included scrub pad and give your whole piece a good rub down.  This gets rid of any grime and fingerprints.  After that dries you move to step 2!

Step 2 is your bond coat.  This is the can that you will get tinted when you purchase the kit at Home Depot.

I chose the color called Winter Fog!  It’s a really pretty light gray.  Furniture Transformations can  be tinted to any of the 24 different colors shown below!

I used a roller brush and paint brush to apply mine.  The dry times were quick.  It went on like a thin latex paint, which I loved because it eliminates seeing brush strokes.

After your bond coat dries you are ready for step 3!  That is a optional decorative glaze.  Many of you know love the look of glaze and how it catches the lines of your furniture.  I decided to skip this part on this piece, but to apply it you just brush it on, and then wipe it off!  Easy!

Finally is your top coat!  I used a foam brush to apply mine.  It went on great, and took the dull finish of the bond coat to a perfect satin finish.  Just shiny enough!

It is really that easy!!

Some of my favorite things about this product before I show you the results….

~ You can paint almost any surface including laminate!!

~It is a durable finish that will withstand scratches and 5 kids over time 😉

~ One-Stop Shopping! I love the fact that you can get all you need in one easy purchase!  This comes especially in handy when pushing a stroller and cart at the same time… Just saying!

~ Great color options!

~PRICE!  The entire kit sells for just around $39 at Home Depot!  Seriously!  How great is that?? By the time you purchase 5 other products to possibly achieve the same results, you will be way more out of pocket!

And finally…

~One kit covers up to 35 square feet!  That’s the size of a kitchen table and 4 chairs!

Did I mention it’s only $39?? 😉

Want to see how mine turned out???

I love it!! It makes me happy when I look at it!  And I have some product leftover, so I may just go find something else that needs to be Winter Fog!

So… What would you paint?? Table, dresser, maybe a bed??   CLICK HERE TO ENTER TO WIN YOUR OWN FURNITURE TRANSFORMATIONS KIT!!!

Thanks so much friends and let me know if you have any questions!  I would love for you to spread the word and pin this product below 🙂 !! Thanks again!!

    I have a buffet I have been wanting to do for a long time! Your Hutch came out so nice!

    Love this! I need to redo my pie safe/hutch that I got when my grandmother died. Right now, it’s green, and I think it would be beautiful in Winter Fog!

    I have an old dresser I got in college that I would love to redo. It’s got good bones but the color is horrible.

    This looks so easy and your hutch came out beautiful. Would love to try this and have the perfect pieces to try it on and do believe the winter fog would be the perfect color also.

    This is great! I was intimidated to try to revamp any furniture until now! Our house is filled with hand-me-down furniture just begging for a make over!!

    We are going to be painting bedroom furniture for our twin girls (moving out of cribs). I think this product just answered all my questions and eased my fear of painting furniture since I haven’t done it before! 🙂 If we were wanting white furniture, I guess we don’t select a color/tone or is the winter fog white?

    i think i’m in love. i bought a hutch several months ago that i’ve done nothing with (picking the color has been the worst). i am def going to try this little box on it. thinking cabernet…..

    Oh my gosh! This stuff looks awesome! We just bought our first house and are furnishing it with all used furniture. I’ve been “treasure hunting” for te past few months and I have a dresser that will be my first project. I plan to make it a changing table for our baby girl! I’m so excited!!!!

    I have a set of dresser drawers that definitely need a makeover. Love all your projects! 🙂

  11. Amy on May 16, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    I’ve got a couple headboards that need to be painted. Would love to win! This looks like a very cool new product. I’ll have to look for it in the store.

    I’ve been hearing A LOT about this stuff! I’m super curious to see how well it will work on laminate. I have a bedroom set that needs some major love and I’m even thinking our master bath cabinets. I’m sold. Thanks for trying it and sharing your experience. I’m sure I will be trying this soon 🙂

  13. Pam Robinson on May 16, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Love this project SOOO much!

  14. Erica on May 16, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    We used their Cabinet Transformation kit for our kitchen last summer, and it was AMAZING!!!!! We got a whole new look to our cabinets for $140 bucks.

  15. [email protected] on May 16, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Wow! Love what you did to the hutch! I definately have a few projects in need of this ‘little box’!! I wonder if it comes in a weatherproof outdoor kit! That would be awesome!


  16. Natalie on May 16, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    I have an old fashioned closet that needs a little “rustoleum makeover” how fun !!

    Thanks for sharing this with us

  17. Amy on May 16, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    What a great idea for a new product! It’s perfect for a headboard and dresser I need to redo!

  18. Lindy on May 16, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    This is just what I was looking for. I just bought 2 used desks that are in desperate need of a makeover.

  19. Jackie Toye on May 16, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    I love the before and after. I’ve got to paint atleast piece of furniture “the right way, one day. I’m “one of those” …
    Thanks for the tip

      Can you do this with kitchen cabinets?

  20. Shannon on May 16, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    I love the wood in the back. I would love to add the wood to the back of some old IKEA bookshelves I have. What did you use? Hopefully something not too heavy.
