A layer of fresh painting kitchen cabinets can transform, and it costs a lot less to replace them. However, before beginning, examine the state of the same. If they are made of agglomerate and are warped or rotting, not even a good paint job can hide the imperfections. Hardwood cabinets, on the other hand, can improve to look new with a coat of paint. Erase all cabinets drawers. Remove the drawers of the cabinets and remove all the hardware that connect the frames to the outer walls of the same. Repeal the doors from the cabinets. Remove the screws from the hinges and remove the doors from the frames. Once the doors are removed, remove all the hinges attached to the cabinetry frames. Wash all surfaces of cabinets. Use an anti-grease cleaner and a sponge or soft cloth to remove dirt and stains before painting.
Rinse with water and let them dry completely. Repair all scratches, or cracks in the wood with a wood or agglomerate filler. If there are scratches, scratches or other unsightly marks use a good filler. The painting of a professional-looking cabinet will not be complete without a smooth surface. Make sure you let the compound dry. At this point decide if you want new handles for your cabinets. If the new fittings require holes of different sizes, or with more or less distance from each other, you will have to fill the old holes with fillers and make new ones with a drill before painting. Sand the surfaces of the diy kitchen cabinet refinish. Gently rub all the areas you will paint with a 120º grain sandpaper. This will help the basecoat and paint to adhere better when painting the cabinets.
Start by giving a base coat to the sanded surfaces. The base coat is applying before the paint. The paint that is applied directly to the wood will dry prematurely since the wood is very porous and absorbs the solvent quickly. For this reason, the base coat or primer helps the paint adhere to it and dries more slowly, leaving the color brighter and the texture softer. Wait for the base to dry, and then re-sand the surface with a finer grit sandpaper. Once the base coat is completely dry, use a 240 grit sandpaper on the primer. Again, this will make the surface rougher for the paint to adhere to the primer. Contain the areas you do not want to paint. Tape all the inside edges of drawers or glazing kitchen cabinets if you are not going to paint the interiors.
