Step 3: Remove also Label the Doors, Drawers also Hardware
As tempting as it may be to paint your cabinets with the doors in‐conjunction with hardware (including hinges) still attached, don't do it — that "time saver" shall cost you in the long run. Remove the cabinet doors together with drawers, making sure to label where they came from. A simple piece of masking tape with a location written on it would save you a lot of hassle later.
If you are replacing the existing hardware with new pieces, drill the holes for it at this stage filling all other holes also spots in the wood. Take the hinges off of the cabinet fronts as well. Storing them inside the now‐open cabinet is easy, as well as they won't get lost while you are painting.
Step 4: Prep Your Surfaces
No matter how unblemished your kitchen is everyone (yes flat you) needs to scrub the cabinet boxes, doors together with drawers. Kitchens are work zones, in‐conjunction with there is more dirt as well as grease there than any of us care to admit. Paint won`t stick to dirt or grease, so make certain your surfaces are prepped properly.
Mixing one part trisodium phosphate (TSP, found at the hardware store) with four parts water shall produce an effective degreaser. Use proper safety gear (gloves plus goggles) when handling the cleaner, also give your cabinets a good wipe–down. Allow the cabinets to dry totally before mobile on.
Step 5: Sand Everything You Are Painting
We know you don`t desire to, but you need to lightly sand the painting surfaces to get them ready; paint won´t stick to the finish. Wood cabinets must be sanded fair sufficient to make the conclude matte.
If your cabinets have previously been painted also there is no chipping or peeling, then the same plan applies. But if you have painted cabinets with flakes of paint coming off, you shall need to get down to naked wood.
No material how much sanding you are doing, make sure you don´t round or wear down any edges (try a sanding block), with take supervision to vacuum away any dust. Finish with a tack cloth so no residue remains.
