In the end it took us five days along with other activities such as teaching the boys to ride bikes and hosting new year’s sleep overs for them.

The solution to our desire to update our cabinets was the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations kit. I bought mine at lowes and had it tinted with the Tudor color, but it looks like you can order it from Amazon also.
