If you are having cabinets that are old and outdated, but you’re unable to replace them yet, painting them is one of the best methods that you can consider in order to update them. There is no arguing with the fact that paint can work wonders on everything, and kitchen cabinets.
However, the fact of the matter is that painting kitchen cabinets can be tiring and you can easily hire a professional to do the job for you but if you don’t want, try doing it yourself.
1. The best way to paint kitchen cabinets is with a paintbrush and small roller. If you want the process to move more quickly, just spray painting is also an option you can think of. When you’re ready to get started, make sure clear off your kitchen counters, empty your cabinets, and keep a cloth on all over your appliances. Remove all of hardware, doors, and drawers from your cabinets. Always keep this in mind that if you can fit a worktable in your kitchen, paint the doors would become much easier.
2. Another important thing that you should do is you’ll want to prep all of the doors and drawers properly, ensuring your paint will stick. Make sure you start this process by scrubbing your cabinets that will help you to get free from any residue. If you’re planning to use new hardware, it is important for you to cover the current holes with wood filler. For an effective cleaning, you can use sandpaper to make all of the surfaces smooth and make sure to wipe away any dust with a cloth.
If you want professional-style results, then you should prime the boxes, door fronts and drawers before you started with the process of painting. Once your primer has dried, use an angled brush and apply your paint.
3. For painting kitchen cabinets, spray paint is another option, but this process is best done in a designated workspace so you don’t have to worry about overspray. If spray painting your cabinets, you can follow the above process as above but instead of working with a paintbrush and roller.
