Bathroom Cabinets Reveal Using Reclaim Paint

Bathroom Cabinets Reveal

Repainting our bathroom cabinets had been on our list of home projects since we painted our kitchen cabinets with chalk paint this summer.  This bathroom is the bathroom our guests use… and the décor is dramatically different from the rest of our house.  As a newlywed, I gave Taylor reign over design of this Razorback bathroom.  (In hindsight, maybe there should have been some stipulations.)


But anyways we knew the cabinets would look best painted black because Taylor built a black frame over the builder grade mirror when we first moved in.


This is what we were dealing with before.

I loved the chalk paint we used for the kitchen cabinets, but Reclaim paint appealed to me because of the built in sealant.  This paint deserves it’s very own blog post.  Read my “All about Reclaim Paint” blog post!  I am. in. love. with. Reclaim. 3-in-1 paint.

This photo was after one coat of paint.  It only needed one more light coat.  No sanding.  No priming.  No sealing.  Not too good to be true!  Real life.

supplies for cabinets

These were the only tools and supplies I needed for the entire project.  You can totally do this too!

It’s a good idea to mark where the doors go by labeling a little piece of painting tape on each door.

Hardware made all the difference on these cabinets.

Cabinet hardware was provided by D. Lawless Hardware.  Please keep in mind all opinions are my own!

This was such a fun package to get in the mail!

The hardware pictured is the stainless steel bar pull and the satin nickel cup pull.  I loved them so much that this happens to be the same exact hardware we used on our kitchen cabinets.

    Does it have the same soft look as chalk paint? I need to touch up the front doors and seal it. Wondering if this is what I need to get.

    I just purchased the Reclaim paint and don’t like the finish with a roller. I thought it would be smoother. Can you see any brush strokes on your cabinet?

      Hi Gena, I do not use the roller!!! I use an angled brush with all of my RECLAIM projects. I think it is a matter of preference, but I did not like the fabric roller either. Try a clean angled brush. Mine do not have brush strokes.

    Hi, I am thinking about painting my kitchen cabinets with chalk paint (went to a Maison Blanche class last night). Now that it’s been a while since you did both your bathroom and kitchen, do you have a preference for future projects? Is one holding up better than the other? Does the Reclaim paint have a satin-varnish type of finish?

    I love the transformation. Would you mind emailing me the details of your experience with chalk paint and relcaim? I am wanting to repaint my kitchen cabinets-if you had to do it again, would you use reclaim in the kitchen? Thanks!
