Paint Kitchen Cabinets

You can simply paint kitchen cabinets to give the room a fresh and warm feel. When planning to revamp the kitchen cabinets you may think about replacing the whole cabinetry. It is absolutely not required to replace your kitchen cabinetry to change the look of your cabinets.

Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Apply fresh coats of paint to your kitchen cabinets to change the look of your old kitchen cabinets. Painting your cabinets is an easy job but may take some time to complete. So may be you would do well to plan the job during the weekends.

Before painting your cabinets you need to gather the tools necessary for the job. You will require different paint brushes, rags, paper towels and painting tape. Get primer and cans of the paint that you will use for painting.

You will need some flat surface to paint the cabinet doors, so you can use your garage area. Do not forget to cover the work area using newspapers or some other materials.

Painting kitchen cabinets is a job which you yourself can do. Start from inside and then do the exteriors. It makes your job easier if you remove all the hardware, shelves and drawers. If possible remove the doors from the cabinets.

A bit of preparation would be needed before you start painting old kitchen cabinets. Look for dents, scratches and other distortions and then cover them up with putty. Let the areas dry and then using sandpaper sand them mildly.

Clean the cabinet doors and inside using rugs and paint thinner. You may use soap and water too for the cleaning purpose. Let the cabinet and its parts dry.

Start applying primer to cabinet surfaces that you need to paint. You may need to apply the primer twice in order to get a better finish. Allow the cabinet to completely dry.

The next job of course is to start painting the cabinets. Use a short handle brush to paint the interiors of the cabinet. Paint the interior walls, inside top, bottom area, top area and the edges of the shelves. Let the paint dry.

Now paint kitchen cabinets beginning with the interiors and external surfaces which include the cabinet doors. Painting wood kitchen cabinets may require some time as the wood grains do not get covered up. You may need to apply coats of paint to cover the grains completely.

Do not forget to pain the fronts of your drawers. Once the paint dries up completely you need to check the surface and decide on whether it needs another coat. Normally you will need to apply the second coat.

While selecting the primer for repainting kitchen cabinets use oil based primers. They produce a stronger finish and hold the paint better. You may also choose latex primers but remember the oil ones are more durable.

When you paint kitchen cabinets choose a good quality oil paint. Select a colour and finish that augments your kitchen and matches your style. You may choose between satin or semi glossy finishes depending on your choice.

Do remember oil paints take longer to dry in comparison to latex paints. Once the cabinet doors and the interiors are completely dry, fasten each of the pieces you had taken out. You may add new knobs and other hardware to completely makeover the old kitchen cabinets.
