    White RECLAIM
 

Dear Caromal Colours Team:

Well - here it is, my new kitchen thanks to Caromal Coulours! We are extremely pleased with the way things turned out. I think the absolute
hardest part was cleaning the cabinets. The cabinets had so much grime on them and about 6 different hardware holes, so I had a lot of hole patching to do on each door and drawer. It did take a few more coats than I had anticipated, but it was so easy to put on and I was so excited, that I'd have given them 10 coats if they needed it!

    Licorice RECLAIM
We did cabinets in a 1979 condo over the summer with Reclaim and are extremely happy with the results.

The paint was actually really easy to apply - we did not go for the antique look, we just went with straight application. Our cabinets at the condo were in pretty rough shape and it did a great job of
covering 20 years of wear and tear. It seemed crazy to spend $100 on a gallon of paint, but the fact that the only prep we had to do before
painting was to wash them, vs needing to sand/strip etc, more than made up for it. We did apply two coats of polyurethane after we painted them for durability. Time will tell how durable they are, but we didn't ding up the paint at all as we continued to work on the kitchen.

Here's our blog of how we updated - has some before and after pics -

I just painted my kitchen cabinets with reclaim. It was the easiest painting job I have ever done. I am so pleased and happy with the results. My kitchen is so much brighter. It looks twice as large as it actually is. I enjoy cooking in my kitchen again. Thank you for this great product. I plan to order other colors and start painting some furniture.

Off White RECLAIM, distressed, & Antiquing Glaze  
I just wanted to say Thank You for all your help with my project. This was my first time using your product, and my first time ever painting anything but walls! I was very nervous..but I have to say I love love my cabinets!! They came out exactly how I wanted them to!! I'm attaching some before and after pictures. I also painted the stove hood...looks awesome!
 
I do have one question...can I purchase a very small bottle of reclaim off white with toner just incase I need to touch up areas? I'm not sure if you sell smaller bottles.
 
Thanks again,
Lori
 
PS - I will be ordering your textured black and mustard for my next project!!

I wanted a new (OLD) look for my kitchen without having to spend a fortune doing so. A friend of mine suggest I use your Country Living paint. I was going for a very primitive look....I LOVE the end result! I was able to achieve the look I wanted by using your paint on my cupboards and countertops and purchasing only a new sink and faucet!

Love this paint! I can't believe how well it covered our very dark kitchen cabinets without showing brush marks. I will be using it again!

Dear Caromal Colour Staff,

I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful support. After two years of hesitation I've finally begun painting my kitchen cabinets. I was nervous because I am not a skilled painter, and my cabinets were grainy oak. Your product is perfect. I cut in the edges with a brush and rolled the rest. It's looking great. Special thanks to Sue, at your toll-free number, who was so helpful when I needed specific guidance mid-project.

I am expecting compliments on my "new" cabinets, and will not hesitate to steer my friends to you.

Gratefully,
Martha



I wanted to send my Caromal Colours makeover your way.
My husband is a Navy Reservist who was activated. I completed it by myself.
This was a labor of love because this house was built by my mother, which I purchased after her death. It was a project she would have loved to do herself as well.
Thanks again

Wanted to share some pictures of our kitchen makeover. Love them, love them, love them. Cost a little more because we had to do them twice. Found that with the two of us doing them, one person needed to do one step on all of them and then the other person did all of the next step. We used different techniques and it showed when they were finished so that is when we figured that one person needed to complete the process on all the cabinets. Did that make sense? Anyway love the finished outcome.

The blue cabinets are what we started with. Love your product.

Nancy, Sykesville, MD



I had old, dark cabinets in my kitchen and I used Parchment with Toner kit on the main and Cobblestone and toner on the island and they turned out BEAUTIFUL. It looks like a brand new kitchen and looks "professionally" done! I am proud of the work and SO IMPRESSED with the finish. I am looking around the house to see what else I can bring life into!





Received the caromal colours order in mustard, and absolutely love it.  I did my kitchen cabinets, and everybody has raved about them.  This process does work well, and soooooooo  easy to use.  It inspired me to go on and do more.  Thanks for the product-love it.

Here's another one that we did.

After - Peppercorn Distressing Kit
 
 

The Details...    
 
We really layered up the colors in this accent piece:
Start with Peppercorn, then Pumpkin, and finish with Bayberry & Toner. (And remember to put Chipping Creme between each color of Basecoat.)
  We created a medium amount of texture in this finish. 
Control the amount of texture by using more or less Textured Basecoat.





After weeks of searching online for a product that could be applied directly over high gloss poly, I found a site that had examples of your products (fabfinisher.com). I emailed Patty several times with questions and after a few days, I was convinced that this product would work. With Patty's heplful hints and encouragement, I am happy to say that my kitchen cabinets are gorgeous!! I liked them so much that I did the countertop too...and am working on gilding a mirror and then it is on to bathroom cabinets and an experiment with tile. I love your products!!
