How To Refinish Kitchen Cabinets

Do you want to know How To Refinish Kitchen Cabinets? We can help! If your kitchen cabinets are looking a little old and you want to add some life and style back into them. Here are some ways by which you can refinish your kitchen cabinets with our DIY Kitchen Cabinet Painting Kit.

  1. Remove Everything Before Starting

Before you start refinishing kitchen cabinets, make sure you remove and empty out all of the cabinets. Once you empty out everything, make sure that you are labeling everything, and putting them in designated boxes. This might sound insignificant but labeling things will make you remember where to put stuff back once you are done refinishing the cabinets. This is a very small thing, but it will make a world of a difference when you will be organizing stiff afterward. Also, while you’re at it, empty out all of the adjoining drawers and cupboards too, so you can work only on the cabinets. If you want, you can also disassemble the cabinets to make refinishing easier for you.

  1. Clean All The Cabinets

After you have the cabinets removed, you can soak the hardware in some cleaning solution to get rid of any dirt or murk on the handles, knobs, and hinges of the cabinets. This is an extra step, but it will make the end result look extremely professional and a lot cleaner than before. Also, cleaning the surfaces and compartments in the cabinets is a good idea. This will get rid of the dirt in the nook and crannies of the cabinet and can also get rid of some cobwebs and mites.

  1. Sand, Prime, And Paint

The next step is sanding the cabinets. This will make the new surface emerge from the bottom and paint and primer will adhere to the surface better. Sanding the cabinets is super easy, all you need is sandpaper, and sand the surface down till it becomes smooth. Next, apply a coat of primer to get the surface ready for paint. Next, is the fun part that is the paint. You can choose from an array of colors and apply a thin coat and let it dry, before moving on to the next layer.
