Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cabinets look AWESOME! We recently purchased a new home. The cabinets are 30+ years old. They are beautiful but we’re an old ugly brown. After some blood , sweat, and tears I successfully scraped and sanded them. Kilz paint transformed my cabinets and my kitchen. It went on so smooth and covered the old ugly doors and interior woodwork! Love, love, love this paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect Interior Bathroom Matte finish This Matte Interior finish is perfect for the master bathroom. You can choose the next color up or down in shades between your bedroom color from the KILZ Tribute matte finish to match both rooms perfectly. I also used wooden shutters on my wall once the interior paint was complete by painting my shutters with exterior paint for my western theme decor as saloon doors and added Lighting in hanging mason jars. The low lighting will enhance the color choices, and give you the perfect look! Use both and get a completed look with KILZ paint choices.
