Repaint Cabinets for an Instant Kitchen Facelift


Looking for an inexpensive update to your kitchen? Check out these tips. 

If your kitchen cabinets have seen better days, a fantastic weekend DIY project is to give them a fresh coat of paint. Make dreary, dated cabinets look new, without the cost and hassle of replacing them! Being prepared is the key with this project, so have a plan and pick the right paint!

Visit your local home improvement store to find numerous products designed specifically to make this job easy and be sure to ask the experts which paint is the right choice. Take pictures of your cabinets to ensure the experts know the type of cabinetry you are preparing to paint.

Prep – Begin by removing the cabinet doors and the hardware. Be sure to note where the doors are located before removing them, as this will make reinstalling them much easier. Before you paint, the cabinets will need to be cleaned so they are free from any dust or debris. Cabinets may also require a light sanding.

Paint – Depending on the kind of paint you choose, a primer may be necessary. Apply primer to all surfaces you are going to paint. Once the primer has dried, apply the paint. You can apply the paint using a spray, brush or roller, depending on your surface type. To view modern color options, click here.

Hang – Once paint has dried completely, carefully position cabinets back into their original place and secure them tightly.

Hardware – Modern hardware can do every bit as much to update cabinets as paint does. While home improvement stores have some variety, endless choices are available online to make your cabinets stand out. Amazon alone has thousands of options.
