Great idea for older cabinets cute, I highly recommend this if you have old cabinets, these are basically the steps I took when I painted our kitchen cabinets last month except I used TSP to wash them before painting and I didnt sand. I wasnt sure if I would regret not sanding but so far so good, no chipping or peeling, I think the TSP is the key to prepping them Idea, Cupboards Makeovers, Distressed Cabinets, Cabinets Redo, Paintings Cabinets, Kitchens Cabinets Makeovers, Kitchens Cupboards, Bathroom Cabinets, Kitchen Cabinets
Kitchen - Steps - Sand, degloss the frame surface with Krud Kutter, prime, allow to dry 24 hours, sand again, paint cabinet frames with 2-3 coats of paint.
I haven't seen a better photograph that TRULY epitomizes how to refurbish something...Look at this door you would NEVER know it was a very outdated 1980's oak kitchen cabinet door! I have the same oak cabinets!! using the rope detail is brilliant!!
I did this and the results were fabulous! I used high gloss paint on the cabinets. I also painted the old brass-colored hardware and the base of the light fixture with matte silver. It's amazing how well the spray paint holds to the knobs and hinges.
