For best results, we recommend removing cabinet doors and all cabinet hardware. It will be easier to get a smooth finish when coating the doors while they are laying flat.

Not at this time. To obtain the same color of the bond coat, a new kit will have to be purchased. A few products are available in the linen color but it will not be an exact color match to the cabinet kit since the formulas of the products are different. The only part of the kit that is available for purchase separately is the decorative glaze.

Ryan, depending on which color you use, two coats of base coat the color should match on the different surfaces. If using a white or very light color, to be extra safe and ensure color uniformity, start with a primer such as Zinsser Cover Stain. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-qt-White-Cover-Stain-Oil-Based-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-3504/100398403

When applying Rust-Oleum Transformations Cabinet Kit we recommend allowing the surface to dry for a minimum of 12 hours before reattaching the doors and drawers and at least 24 hours before full use. Allowing ample time for the paint to dry before attaching will prevent your doors from sticking after they are painted.

You'd need to make the top coat a faux finish by applying it with a wood grain tool, linked below.

You would use this to give you that rich wood look.

It is possible to lighten the color Sea Meadow, but by doing this you will void the warranty of the product and it will be hard to match this color again. If you ever have to do touch ups, or recoat. You will have to take this kit back to Home Depot's Paint Department and they would add the paint for you.

There are better products. You MUST prime if going from dark to light. They lie about that! Seriously, consider Insl-X CabinetCoat or Benjamin-Moore Advance. Google others. This one is terrible. (And, yes, I did all the prep and used a good paintbrush. Still terrible)

Use Chalk Paint and Wax! This stuff will last for many years. I'm in the processing of doing mine right now. Just ensure that your cabinets are free from grease/dirt before you start painting them. Sanding not required. Do two or three coats, let dry in between for about an hour or so, then apply the wax with an old white tshirt (buffing lightly). Look up the process on the internet. It's so much easier than the Rustoleum kits.

We would recommend using the Cabinet Transformations Kit, but the color choice is up to you. We provide colors to view on top of the kits.
The knots, like those in knotty pine, can be an issue when coating. The resin in the knots can bleed through and ruin a finished surface. Simply prime the entire surface with a pigmented shellac base primer such as Zinsser® B-I-N® Primer and proceed with your project.

Yes it can be used on painted cabinets. Sanding is probably less labor intensive than using the deglossing method in the kit. Sanding is going to cause more mess/dust but will smooth out more imperfections that you may have in your cabinets.

Yes, it can be used on painted cabinets. Personally I would wash them in TSP first to remove grease, then lightly sand to remove any imperfections. Then just follow the kit instructions. If you prefer a kilz type primer could be used to cover the old paint (especially if it is dark and your going light) for a worry free finish.

Yes, you can use this over painted cabinets. You use the deglosser first; then the base coat and, finally the glaze and the seal coat. The deglosser will remove any shiny finish from the paint, but should not remove the paint itself. Be certain to watch for drips in the base coat so that you can remove them before they dry. Also, make sure you set aside twice the amount of time you think it will take, as this is one project that you will need to take your time with in order to achieve a great end product. Good luck!

Rustoleum's topcoat is a water based polyurethane sealant, so there is no reason you could not use another water based sealant on top of the Rustoleum top coat. They're basically the same thing, so you're just adding a second coat.
