As a professional interior decorator I am often asked how to paint kitchen cabinets questions and great home repairs. Not long ago, someone I knew asked for advice on painting their kitchen cabinets. I know a lot of do-it-yourself websites and many TV shows promote the painting of your kitchen cabinets. My opinion is a little different. I want you to know some unpopular truths about painting your kitchen cabinet.
The work needed to properly prepare the door surface and boxes that require the release of hardware, wash several times, and sand all surfaces, clean all sanding dust can take a long time. Now add to the ones attached to the area in the kitchen. You don’t want to get paint and remove items in the drawer, removing all the front doors. You need to place the front of the door on a flat surface.
The next step is to polish all the surfaces and let them dry. Now you can really start painting but make sure to do a few layers of thin paint and paint completely dry between the coats for the best results. This is a 2 weekend project if not 5 to 6 days to do the job properly and not make it look like an amateur. After all the cabinets are painted, leave them dry and cured for 2 weeks – yes, weeks – before you reassemble and use your kitchen.
