After wiping down my cabinet door with a soapy rag I cracked open my jar of Caromal Colours Bright White RECLAIM.
Layer 1 – Use chip brush and coat any detailed areas
then using the whiz roller (included in the kit)
I rolled my paint onto a plate because I didn’t want to dirty a tray for one door
Done. Took under two minutes.
Apply Layer 2 (just repeat process) if needed:
Completed door, 2 coats, drying. (*Note: the Bright White offers the least coverage over mid to darker tone surfaces, and can typically take 3 coats for solid coverage. ) If you don’t plan on glazing your cabinets then you are done. No sanding. No sealing. Follow the instructions on dry/cure time.
Glazing / Antiquing-
WAIT 3 DAYS IF YOU WANT TO GLAZE YOUR CABINETS. The instructions tell you that. Read the instructions. I didn’t read them. I couldn’t wait for the door to dry so I could see what the glaze looked like…. so I brushed on the glaze
You can brush or roll the glaze – I chose to brush it on
then a simple wipe off with a terry rag
But it may not be so simple if you don’t WAIT the 3 day cure period before glazing. I had a hard time wiping the glaze off in some areas – it got a little spotchy. Why? My door was about 1/2 hour dry….. if it doesn’t cure (3 days) then the glaze can actually start to re-activate the paint –
I learned the hard way. Don’t learn the hard way. Read the simple instructions that come with the products.
Remember the before?
Quite remarkable 🙂 Yup!

Are you ready to order RECLAIM?
Did you see Reclaim, by Caromal Colours, on HSN? Are you like me where you SEE something that grabs your attention, but you want to know more before you invest? So you hop online and surf the nets, searching for information – IS it really as easy as it says? Is it durable? Is it going to scratch off? What does it look like close up? Are the colors accurate?
Well, you found the right place – I have loads of information here, so stick around awhile and peruse all my Caromal posts. Here you’ll find concise photos, how to’s and tips on application.
I’ve been in the professional decorative finishing business for over eight years. 2 1/2 years ago I signed on to become a Rep for Caromal – we don’t get paid a salary – we are all Independent Reps, and our job is to offer you the information you need to feel more confident , more comfortable in tackling your own projects – then you will want to get your hands on the products and create your OWN fabulous creations.
So how are we compensated for our time and efforts? By your ordering and using our Rep codes – mine is PattyH (or PattyH 5 for orders over 75) this code not only identifies your connection to me, but also saves you 2-5 bucks off shipping.
I put alot of time and effort into my site. (ask my husband ) If you find my posts helpful and beneficial, then please consider helping me in return by ordering through me vs. HSN. (its all same pricing) If you order through HSN we Rep’s get zero credit for the sale – and this is the only way we earn anything. You don’t pay any more, any less – actually you’d pay a few bucks less because I’ll apply my rep coupon code.
