I have been getting a ton of questions via lately about among our Facebook postings in which I painted our kitchen cabinets and walls. Most people are curious and want to learn how to paint kitchen cabinets, and how much it cost to get our cabinets looking like new.
Our house is quite old and so are our cabinets. It did not bother us at first but eventuallywe got sick of looking at that ugly veneer seem so we decided it was time for a makeover.
It is not so difficult to paint over veneer it just needs the ideal prep work. If you hire an expert I would suggest trying to do as much as possible yourself like taking off the doors and hardware and possibly sanding them gently with a 220 grit sanding block. Only a light scuff can do (imagine you’re cleaning a window). That will save you a few dollars. But if you choose to do it on your own here are a few hints on how to paint kitchen cabinets and get amazing and long lasting results.
Planning When Painting Kitchen Cabinets
After you remove your doors (or simply masking your hinges) lightly sand/scuff the surfaces which are being painted with a 220 grit sanding block. Use a Sort of degreasers like Windex or Zep Citrus Degreaser.
Next, you’ve got two options.You can use a 220 grit sandpaper and lightly scuff your surfaces or use Krud Kutter-Gloss Away which you can wipe on using a rag and let it sit for 10 minutes. Your surfaces will be deglossed without having to sand them.
Your next step is to prime the surfaces with the ideal primer. I used one coat of”INSL-X Stix” that is a urethane acrylic You can find it online or at your local Benjamin Moore Supplier.
Using a good quality Pest Control Services can help you get the best finish possible. I propose using Benjamin Moore Advance Alkyd. It is quite easy to work with and dries to a tough and durable finish.
Using a 2-inch Nylon paintbrush begin cutting in around the hardware (if you did not get rid of the doors) and any places your Whizz™ roller will not reach. Then use your Whizz™ roller to apply your ALKYD enamel. Try to paint in exactly the same way as your grain (if your cabinet has a fake wood layout ). Let it dry overnight and repeat. You can hang your doors now but bear in mind that although the enamel will dry overnight, it still takes 30 days to fully cure so be careful and try to avoid scrubbing them until those 30 days.
