Has anyone painted kitchen cabinets with the Rustoleum paint? I've seen the professional paint jobs all over the place but was wondering about this product.

RE: Rustoleum Kitchen Cabinet Paint + Ikea Adel Cabinet

Are you talking about Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations? I know someone who recently used it on some older golden oak cabs. They went very dark, nearly black, which I didn't care for in the first place. However, the cabs felt rough, gritty, like they hadn't been properly prepped or sanded. These are experienced DIYers, so it's not like they didn't know what they were doing. They said it took FIVE coats! Ugh. It wasn't a great look or feel.

I tried the black on an oak bathroom vanity, and it didn't adhere properly despite following directions with the deglossing first step. Kind of slid off and peeled. It's a lot easier to use gel stain.

Yes, that's te product I had in mind. It's not sounding like its going to work or look good. Boo.
