CLASSIC CUPBOARDS™
our paint

Formulated years ago specifically for hardworking kitchen cabinets, our thick and creamy Classic Cupboards Paint™ was designed to fill in wood grain and bond to nearly every surface. Classic Cupboards Paint™ is still mixed by hand and applied layer after layer to provide a tough and beautiful, long lasting finish.

CLASSIC CUPBOARDS™
our process

Our unique multi-step process includes the application of 11–14 layers of Classic Cupboards™ products, which create a thick and durable coating specifically designed to give your cabinets a long and happy life. We use this same process to not only complete your doors and drawers in our paint studio, but also to finish the base cabinets in your home.
