There are many ways to paint kitchen cabinets, but most of those ways will leave you with a disappointing finished product full of dried brush strokes, paint dribbles, or rough texture. There are two ways, in my experience, to do it right. One involves spraying, which is difficult in an existing kitchen, and the way I’m showing you today. I’ve used this technique to paint many a cabinet– from bathrooms to kitchens to furniture– and if you’re going to update your current kitchen, while living in your home, this is the way to do it. Today I’m sharing my technique for how to paint kitchen cabinets.
Painting your cabinets is no doubt a big job. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you start.
1) It’s important to do it the right way. If you can paint your cabinets and make it look professionally done, it raises the value of your home. If it’s done the wrong way, it’s easy to tell.
2) This is a project that takes some time and patience. It’s best done in phases so it doesn’t disrupt your life too much, and so you don’t get burned out.
3) It takes a combination of using a brush and using a roller, and knowing when to use which tool.
4) The quality of the products and paint you use makes a huge difference. In the video I give specifics about the paint and rollers we used. It’s been through trial and error we have found our favorite products and I recommend them thoroughly.
I hope this video tutorial helps explain a bit more, and visually helps you get the idea.
It’s a lot of information to digest, but I promise if you follow these steps, your kitchen will look amazing!
We still have a lot of work to do in there, but it’s starting to take shape. I can’t even express in words how amazing it is every time I see those bright white cabinets. Hoorah!
