Kitchen Cabinet Painting Gone Wrong

There are many ways the process of painting your kitchen cabinets can go wrong. They usually start with not hiring professionals attempting DIY procedures or hiring the wrong painters for the job. 

Not allocating enough time: When it comes to painting your kitchen cabinets, each product has a specific drying time that must be carefully followed. If you rush your project, the paint, primers, or coats will not give you the results you want. You might ruin your cabinets, and mending mistakes could be more costly than you imagine.

Not cleaning the wood: You must properly clean all surfaces before you paint for all layers to apply as they should. You can’t over-rely on primer because it won’t fix what a good cleaning will fix before any primer application. Cleaning with grease removers will give you optimal results, as it should be thorough. 

Not removing or labeling doors and drawers: Removing hinges, knobs, doors, and drawers is crucial. You won’t save time by painting over everything as-is; they will chip and show signs of wear very quickly. When you do remove everything to paint your cabinets, make sure to label them to be able to put them back in place correctly. Save yourself from a complex puzzle when you’re done painting.
