Want To Paint Cabinets? No Problem

You might think that this job is for professionals only but nope you can do it in your own and the advantage is you don’t have to pay labor fee for anyone you will hire.

First thing you need to do is to remove doors and drawers, this is for better access. You also need to include removing the hinges and all other stuffs. Clean the surface thoroughly and then give a light sanding with 150 grit sandpaper enough to make the surface rough to provide tooth for the paint.

Fill the holes and dents with wood putty, make sure you have the non-shrinking one, let it dry for a while and sand the area smoothly. Put a prime in the cabinets, doors and drawer fronts. Apply two or three light coats enamel paint on the doors and face frames, this is to provide durable appearance.

Fill in also the interiors, make it light colored paint for new look. Be extra careful not to clog shelf hanger holes. You can paint also the shelves if they have the same material with the boxes.

Let it dry. Let the final coat dry maybe for days before you reinstall doors and hardware to prevent them from sticking.
