Do you want a new look to your kitchen cabinets, but don’t want to pay a lot of money for completely new ones? A simple and inexpensive way to update your kitchen cabinets is with a fresh coat of paint. It’s so simple you can do it yourself! Here’s what you need:

  • fine-grit sandpaper
  • sanding block
  • paint applicator
  • primer sealer
  • painter’s tape
  • semigloss paint

Now let’s get started on how to paint kitchen cabinets in Hesperia CA!

Step 1

To start the process, you want to remove the cabinet doors. Taking them down and having them at a comfortable level will make the following steps a lot easier. After removing the doors, you want to remove any knobs or latches and place them and their screws aside in a plastic bag for safe-keeping. To keep things in order, number the doors as you take them down along with their corresponding location. If you don’t keep track of where they came from, you can mix them up and find the hinges don’t exactly match up when the time comes to put them back on.

Step 2

Clean the surfaces of the cabinet doors. The kitchen is a messy place and grease always seems to find it’s way onto things. Before any painting can begin, you need clean surfaces.

Step 3

Sand the surfaces of the cabinet doors. During this step, it isn’t necessary to sand off all the old paint. The purpose of sanding the surface is to get it nice and rough so the new paint has something to grab onto and stick.

Step 4

Apply primer sealer to the complete surface to ensure a well-bonded finish coat.

Step 5

Apply your choice of paint. Apply paint in thin, light strokes covering the entire surface. Thin coats dry faster and don’t show as much brush strokes as thicker coats of paint. Let the paint dry for about 4 hours in between each coat. When one coat is dry, sand the surface in preparation for the next coat. Normally two coats of paint is fine, but depending on your cabinets, a third coat may be required. Once all the paint is dry, replace your cabinets and enjoy your new kitchen look.
