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  With the purchase of 1 box, you can rejuvenate outdated furniture pieces with a great, durable finish!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!!!

In the meantime, you can read more about Rust-Oleum Furniture Transformations HERE and also watch a video on the product HERE!!

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 used this on a perfectly good, but dated, bathroom vanity. Brought it right into the 21st century! Inspired by how good the vanity turned out, I also stained the railings and banisters in my loft. I liked the “no sanding” part. It’s an easy process!

  3. Celeste on January 21, 2018 at 6:25 pm

    Wow, as always beautiful as ever. Very nice, warm, clean color. Looks like a great product. I was wondering what the back is made with and stained? Thank you for all the wonderful posts.

  4. Jennifer Stout on July 12, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    I’m concerned about how a kitchen table would stand the beating on this finish? Heat? Water marks from glasses? I hate to do the process ( I’ve used it on my kitchen cabinets and love it, so I’m not actually worried about the process) and have it “marked” by heat marks or water marks and have to cover the table with a table cloth again anyway??? What do you think about using a higher shine polyurethane finish, rather than the top coat in the kit? It does not leave much of a shine.

  5. Susan Walker on June 22, 2014 at 1:28 pm

    Can you use a paint sprayer with this product?

  6. Kim {Pinspired Home} on May 16, 2014 at 8:24 am

    I have a dresser that I’d love to paint!

  7. Sally Poe on December 30, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    How many coats of the Bond Coat did you have to use to fully cover the black?

  8. Jill on September 9, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Did you have to sand down the piece of furniture first ?!

  9. Kristin on October 2, 2012 at 7:26 am

    Hey I stumbled across your blog when I searched for rustoleum furniture transformations. I really wanted to refinish an antique vanity in white but it looks like that color isn’t an option. The photo of the paint looks grey, but your hutch looks white–what is the winter fog color really like?

  10. Erin on June 12, 2012 at 9:24 am

    OhmyWOW is all I have to say. I stumbled on your website via pinterest and cannot leave! Love your blog-it’s been a fabulous start to my day. 🙂

  11. Sara on June 5, 2012 at 7:53 am

    Hi there! Just found your blog via Pinterest (it was your fabulous farmhouse table!) and I just wanted to tell you that I am so excited to follow you! My finance and I will be moving into our first home soon and I hope to revamp many old pieces for our home. Thanks for sharing great ideas and techniques!!!

    • Shanty2Chic on June 5, 2012 at 11:29 am

      Thank you Sara!! So glad to have you here!! Thanks for your sweet message ;-)!

  12. Mary @ Ms Redo on May 22, 2012 at 11:50 am

    Love it! I so want to try this on some things around here! Mary

  13. France's on May 19, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Hi, I really want to try this on an old ugly piano! Is the paint stinky? Do I need to wear a mask to paint? Thanks!

  14. JENNIFER on May 18, 2012 at 10:11 am

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the hutch!! I have an old dresser that could SO use this product!!! It would look so great!

  15. Heather S. on May 18, 2012 at 9:15 am

    It looks gorgeous! Great job!

  16. Kris Aikens on May 18, 2012 at 3:52 am

    Just bought a cute old side table and that will be my first refinish with this product! Liked it Facebook!

  17. Jennifer on May 18, 2012 at 3:29 am

    That looks great and easy! Thanks to you I now know how I can fix the nightstand in our guest bedroom! Thank You 🙂

  18. Joyce on May 17, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    I plan on doing 2 counter tops with 1 kit, then who knows what will be next!

    Wondering which other stores carry this product, Home Depot I checked doesn’t carry Onyx.

  19. eranfaraway on May 17, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    This kit seems so handy! No more wandering around wondering what is compatible with what! I would repaint my old craigslist dresser. It’s in serious need of a face lift!

  20. tina on May 17, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    I would use it on so many things… I love Rust-Oleum… I have a certain dresser that could use a new re-do….

  21. hazelruth on May 17, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    I would refinish several pieces of old furniture that I’ve had for years that need a makeover! Almost as bad as I need a makeover but that’s a different story…..thanks!

  22. hazelruth on May 17, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    I’m following Rustoleum on Pinterest!

  23. Lissette on May 17, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Thanks so much for showing this one! I have been trying to figure out what to do to revive a couple pieces of furniture at my place. Now I know!

  24. Kristy A on May 17, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    I just bought a large wood and laminate desk that needs some serious love! I’ve been researching on the best way to go about refinishing because it has some deep scratches and areas where the stain has been rubbed off. I was at Home Depot literally an hour ago to buy some spray paint and saw this and my face light up like a kid on Christmas! But with all the issues with my piece I didn’t pick it up. I’m glad to hear how great the product is. We also used the countertop transformation kit and it came out beautiful! I’d love to win this and give it a try!!!

  25. Jenn on May 17, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Would this work on kitchen cabinets – doors and drawers????

  26. Tracey on May 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I would love to paint the vanity in our main bathroom! This sounds like a great product and would love to try it!

  27. Doris on May 17, 2012 at 10:35 am

    I am currently trying to redo an office. Would live to try this product on my built-in bookcases!

  28. Cara Christensen on May 17, 2012 at 10:34 am

    I am dying to paint my beautifully outdated dresser from my childhood bedroom and move it to my baby boy’s nursery. I’m wanting a professional look (not my usual spray paint job) without days of sanding and priming. This kit sounds perfect…thank you!!!

  29. Erin on May 17, 2012 at 10:23 am

    I would use this to redo my daughter’s bookshelf. It has seen better days.

  30. Nichole on May 17, 2012 at 10:01 am

    They have a cabinet transformation kit also – we used it and LOVE the new look of our previously run down kitchen cabinets!

  31. Melynda Tran on May 17, 2012 at 9:18 am

    What a great product! I have a console table that I really do not like the color or style much but kept because it was my daddy’s (he passed away already). So I REALLY want to refinish it so that it will match my taste and decor but yet still be able to keep something of my dad’s. This would be PERFECT for it! I was thinking of fun colors maybe yellow or a turquoise….

  32. Jenny on May 17, 2012 at 9:16 am

    This sounds amazing and your hutch turned out beautifully! I have a bedroom dresser that is the last piece in our bedroom to get updated and I have procrastinated because of all the sanding/stripping part….. this sounds like the perfect solution to get ‘er done!

    The dresser has some dents, can filler be applied first?

  33. Cati Basile on May 17, 2012 at 9:07 am

    Oh my gosh this is AMAZING! I’m going and getting one of these today for a dresser makeover!!

  34. Karen Klager on May 17, 2012 at 8:38 am

    I have wanting to do my kitchen cabinets, I wonder if it would work on that?…A lot of the work is in the sanding & prepping & to be able to skip that part is great…Anyway, your hutch came out beautiful!!

  35. Kelly Brannan on May 17, 2012 at 8:16 am

    I love it! I have an old dark hutch I would use it on! 🙂

  36. Tammy Henderson on May 17, 2012 at 8:10 am

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

  37. Vanessa Shows on May 17, 2012 at 8:07 am

    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!

  38. Melissa Blinson on May 17, 2012 at 7:39 am

    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.

  39. Karen J on May 17, 2012 at 7:36 am

    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.

  40. Amy T on May 17, 2012 at 7:01 am

    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!!

  41. ashley on May 17, 2012 at 6:59 am

    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?

  42. tammie on May 17, 2012 at 6:43 am

    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…..

  43. Barbara Mars on May 17, 2012 at 5:45 am

    WOW! How great is that?!?!?!? Would love to try this on my bedroom furniture! Thanks for the giveaway and love your blog!
    Thanks again –
    Barbara in TN

  44. Brandy on May 17, 2012 at 2:08 am

    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!!!!

  45. Sharla on May 16, 2012 at 10:38 pm

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

  46. 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.

  47. Sonya @ So Simple on May 16, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    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 🙂

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

    Love this project SOOO much!

  49. 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.

  50. [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!


  51. 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

  52. 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!

  53. 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.

  54. 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

    • Lisa on June 1, 2014 at 5:46 pm

      Can you do this with kitchen cabinets?

  55. 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.

  56. Debi on May 16, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Would love to use this to redo a kitchen table and chairs that I have used for 25+ years!

  57. Jill on May 16, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    That is just too beautiful! Thanks for the advice. I have a desk that needs redoing and this is just the ticket!

  58. gina on May 16, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    Oh, I have a den coffee table that needs doing…among other things. This product looks like just the ticket! Your hutch is so beautiful.

    • Sunny on May 16, 2012 at 3:46 pm

      Beautiful! Can you distress the edges with this kit too?

  59. Ele on May 16, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    It looks lovely. Great work. I will have to try it!

  60. Embroidery Fashions Boutique on May 16, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    Just bought one of Rust-Oleum kits yesterday to do a old hutch for my kitchen. Haven’t started the project yet. Hope my results are as beautiful as yours.

  61. Carol on May 16, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    Wow! This product was made just for me, since I have always been afraid to paint anything because of the sanding and priming involved. My grand-daughter has an old wood dresser that we got for free that I would love to paint. I think I see a summer project coming on.

  62. Becky on May 16, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    Perfect timing! I was going to purchase all the products to paint my bedroom furniture this weekend! You just saved me a bunch of time and money! I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  63. Vershawn on May 16, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    I. LOVE. this. I can’t wait to try it!

    I am DYING to re-do a headboard!

  68. melissa mathews on May 16, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Ah! I can’t wait to use this! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the wood you added to the hutch!

  69. Karey on May 16, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    I am not sure what I’d use it on. But I do have my eye on a chandelier @ the restore shop in town. thanks for the chance to win.

  70. Eric on May 16, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    I just got a cheapy laminate bedroom set for $75 (headboard, long dresser/mirror, tall dresser, night stand) that I would love to try this on! Curious to see how well it works on laminate!

  71. julie on May 16, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    I would paint a headboard and nightstands! love the seaside color!

  72. Leigh Ann on May 16, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I would love to try this on my dining room table and chairs!! I have been wondering how well it works.

  73. Tasia on May 16, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Ah why didn’t I think of that. The hutch looks GREAT!

  74. Amanda udy on May 16, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    I have two night stands and a head board I want to make over!

  75. Cassie on May 16, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Could you use this to paint countertops for a quick makeover?

    • Elsa on May 16, 2012 at 4:55 pm

      Rust-oleum also sells a countertop transformation. We used it on our countertops. The company is easy to work with if you have any questions 🙂
