Things to keep in mind
- We do not paint inside the cabinets.
- Oak grain will be minimized by our process, but not completely leveled and removed.
- For a second color option there is up to a $650 up charge.
- Walls will need to be painted after enameling cabinets, if walls will be left unpainted you will see an up charge to mask walls off properly and touch ups after the project is de-masked.
