Episode 4 – How to Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets

Last week on How to paint your kitchen cabinets we started prepping the remaining areas of your kitchen.
This week we are cleaning your cabinet boxes and priming them.

  • Using a spray bottle, spay the TSP onto the cabinet boxes and scrub using a scrub pad followed by wiping with a clean rag.
  • Once you have completed cleaning all the cabinet boxes it is time to lightly sand them using 220 grit sandpaper.
  • After sanding you will want to vacuum any debris and wipe your cabinet boxes with alcohol and a clean rag.
  • You are now ready for primer. Use white pigmented shellac primer with the appropriate roller and brush set provided in your kit.
  • Primer is used to block the original color of your cabinets. It also helps ensure even paint coverage.
  • Be sure to cover your roller completely with primer for even coverage.
  • Begin rolling your frames with primer. Prime carefully to avoid any drips or splatters
  • After all, cabinets are primed to allow the frames to dry. You can set up fans to aid in the drying process.
