What To Avoid When Painting Kitchen Cabinets
FORGETTING TO CLEAN THE DOORS
It is easy to go straight to painting without sanding or cleaning your cabinets down first. It is very important to clean and sand your cabinets for the best bond. When painting your cabinets, wet a rag with a small amount of water and wipe them down. If you have a buildup of grease or debris on your cabinets, use a degreaser. Examine your cabinets to make sure that all dirt or grease is gone.
NOT TAKING THE DOORS DOWN
Taking down the doors ensures that they will be painted easily. If you end up painting the cabinets while the doors are up, it makes it harder to avoid hinges and hardware. This will also save you lots of time.
NOT SANDING CABINETS THOROUGHLY
Sanding is a must when painting your cabinets. Make sure not to sand too hard as well or you could put a dent into your cabinets. It is also important to follow the grain of the wood when sanding, it helps to decrease chipping. Sanding is another important step that helps ensure your cabinets are bonded well to the paint.
