DIY Transform a Cabinet with Ultra Matte Finish

Supplies You Need:-

Rust-Oleum Chalked Spray or Brush On

Chateau Cabinet

Paint Brush


Drop Cloth

Latex Gloves

Respirator Mask

Tack Cloth

Medium Grit Sandpaper

Stir Stick

You should do this work in a well-ventilated area and you need to wear gloves while painting. If you’re using this paint in spray form, we would like to suggest to wear a respirator particularly when spraying in a limited space, like your garage. Ensure your cabinet is totally free of any dirt or dust before you start painting.

Step 1: Use a Drop Cloth

To begin, spread out a drop cloth to defend your work space from paint.

Step 1

Step 2: Remove Doors, Drawers, and Hardware

Utilize a screwdriver to remove all equipment and doors from the cabinet. This will make it simple to paint.

Step 2

Step 3: Stir the Chalked Paint

Utilize a stir stick to completely mix your chalked paint. If you're utilizing Chalked Ultra Matte Paint in spray form then shake the can for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle otherwise do it with the help of brush when it’s in paint form.

 Step 3

Step 4: Apply the Paint

You should apply up to three even coats of paint to the cabinet, letting 30 minutes in the middle of each coat. Constantly brush in the direction of the wood grain.

Once you're done with your last coat, let the paint dry for four hours before proceeding onward to the next step.

If you're utilizing Chalked Ultra Matte Paint in spray form, hold the can 10-12 inch away from the cabinet, and spray two or more light coats in a sweeping motion. Permit a couple of minutes in between each coat. Give the paint a chance to dry for four hours.

 Step 4

Step 5: Stir Chalked Protective Topcoat

Since the paint is dry, open your Chalked Protective Topcoat and utilize a clean stir stick to stir it carefully.

Step 5

Step 6: Apply Chalked Protective Topcoat

Next, you need to apply up to two even coats of Chalked Protective Topcoat to the cabinet. Brush the topcoat on with light, even strokes, and be cautious not to over brush it.

Permit 30 minutes between coats.

Step 6

Step 7: Let the Topcoat Dry

The Protective Topcoat will dry clear in around four hours.

Once your cabinet is totally dry, replace the doors and hardware.

 Step 7

Tip: Your beautiful new matte finish cabinet is complete, it’s great opportunity to accessorise it! 

Note: Want to give your cabinet a ragged chic look? You can simply distress chalked paint with medium grit sandpaper for a beautifully aged finish. Simply wait for your paint to dry for at least four hours, at that point follow the directions on the label to distress.
