Kitchen Design – Painting Cabinet Doors without Sanding
Renovating an entire kitchen, or any room for that matter, sounds as tiring as it is so for your renovation you may want to consider kitchen repainting instead. Before everything, the materials that you’ll need for the task include wash cloths, paint brushes, paint rollers, grease-cutting cleaners, painter’s tape, scrubbing sponge, thumbtacks, silver spray paint, liquid deglosser and white cabinet enamel.
Repainting Your Kitchen Cabinets
Grab the scrubbing sponge and remove grime and dirt from the kitchen cabinet. For better cleaning, add a grease-cutting cleaner; ensure that the whole surface is cleaned. Onwers that choose to paint kitchen cabinets without sanding will be opting for a liquid deglosser. By opting for the liquid deglosser, you’re saving a lot of time and effort; just pour a good amount of liquid deglosser on the washcloth and begin wiping the kitchen cabinet in circular motions.
Don’t forget to correctly label the doors and hardware before you begin removing them; label the parts with some painter’s tape. Use a power drill or screwdriver in removing every hinge and part. Remove all the shelving and make sure to wipe the entire inner parts of the kitchen cabinet.
Now would be the time to paint the backside of the kitchen cabinet doors, place the doors flat out with the back facing up; when everything’s set, grab the pain roller and apply a coat of white cabinet enamel. Securely place thumbtacks on all corners of the door and flip them over afterwards; the thumbtacks lift the kitchen cabinet’s backside from sticking on the surface, allowing you to paint the front as the back dries.
With the help of a smaller paint brush, you can paint the moldings more efficiently, especially with kitchen cabinets that feature detailed areas. As you’re painting the front side of the kitchen cabinet, don’t forget to use rollers for the flat surfaces. Wait for the doors to completely dry before adding a new coat of paint; add even more coats if needed. Next would be to spray paint the hinges with silver and leaving them out to dry. Switch to a roller when painting the unit’s walls; completely coat the inside of the kitchen cabinet unit as well as the shelving, outer edges and the center where the cabinet doors meet whenever they’re closed. Once every is dried, rehang the kitchen cabinets with the help of a screwdriver; attach the knobs and hinges on the dry cabinet doors before you rehang them. The last to go in are the shelves and then you’ll have a better looking cabinet and kitchen.
Upgrading your kitchen doesn’t need to be expensive, just grab a few materials and start repainting the kitchen cabinets. As you go from one color to the next, take into account your personal style and needs.
