DIY Cabinet Painting with General Finishes Products

One of the greatest parts about DIY projects is the satisfaction you get from completing a project yourself. Whatever your starting point, be it a worn cabinet or brand new wood plank, you are not limited by creative restrictions and can do anything you want to make the project turn out exactly as you hoped. Or better.
