I have been getting a ton of questions via recently about among our Facebook postings where I painted our kitchen cabinets and walls. Most individuals are curious and want to learn how to paint kitchen cabinets, and how much it cost to receive our cabinets looking like new.
Our house is quite old and so are our cabinets. It did not bother us at first but finally we got sick of looking at that ugly veneer seem so we decided it was time for a makeover.
It is not so hard to paint veneer it just needs the ideal prep work. If you hire an expert I’d suggest attempting 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 couple of 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 enduring results.
Planning When Painting Kitchen Cabinets
After you eliminate 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.

With a good quality paint can allow you to get the best finish possible. I propose using Benjamin Moore Advance Alkyd. It’s quite easy to work with and dries into a tough and durable finish.
Working with a 2-inch Nylon paintbrush begin cutting around the hardware (if you didn’t get rid of the doors) and some areas your Whizz™ roller won’t reach. Then use your Whizz™ roller to use your ALKYD enamel. Try to paint in exactly the exact same way as your grain (if your cupboard has a fake wood layout ). You may hang your doors today but bear in mind that although the enamel will dry overnight, it still requires 30 days to fully cure so be cautious and try to avoid scrubbing them until those 30 days.
