Tips on 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. For this DIY project, you’ll need a handful of tools and equipment including thumbtacks, liquid deglosser, grease-cutting cleaner, paint rollers, scrubbing sponger, painter’s tape, wash cloth, white cabinet enamel, screwdriver and paint brushes.
What to Do
Grab the scrubbing sponge and remove grime and dirt from the kitchen cabinet. Add a grease-cutting cleaner in wiping down every cabinet surface thoroughly; be sure to get every spec of dirt and grime Onwers that choose to paint kitchen cabinets without sanding will be opting for a liquid deglosser. Going for the liquid deglosser saves a considerable amount of time, money and other resources; pour some on a washcloth and start wiping the kitchen cabinets in small circular motions.
Keep in mind to label every door and hardware before removing them; you can use painter’s tape for labeling. The doors and hinges can then be removed with the aid of a screwdriver or power drill. To thoroughly clean the kitchen cabinet’s insides, first take away the shelving then you can wipe it all down.
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. Push a couple of thumbtacks on every door corner, flip them over once placed; the thumbtacks prevent the door from sticking to the ground so the backside dries while you’re busy painting the front.
The small paintbrush will be a big help in painting the molding, especially on the more detailed spots. Once you get to the front of the kitchen cabinet, switch to 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. When painting the walls of the kitchen cabinet unit, use a roller; cover everything including the shelving, outer edges and the center, specifically when the doors meet whenever they’re closed. Lastly, reattach the entire unit with the aid of the screwdriver; don’t neglect to attach knobs and hinges on the cabinet doors before returning the entire unit to its place. The last to go in are the shelves and then you’ll have a better looking cabinet and kitchen.
When deciding to update the overall appearance of the kitchen, painting the kitchen cabinets are the cost-effective and easy option. As you go from one color to the next, take into account your personal style and needs.
