Before you start, make sure you have the following;

• Drop Cloths
• Painters tape
• Chemical wood stripper or primer
• Sandpaper
• Paint (or stain)
• Paintbrushes or a high-volume, low pressure (HVLP) paint sprayer
• Gloves

Then get on with the job by following these simple steps:

• Spread a drop cloth on the floor and cover all counters.
• Use painters tape around plugs and hardware to avoid drips and spills
• Remove the cabinet doors and drawer faces
• Remove handles and hinges from the cabinet doors and store safely, along with the screws, if you plan to reuse them.
• Sand or strip the doors. This may take some time, but it is a necessary task.
• If you’re painting the cabinets a significantly lighter color, you will need to apply a coat of primer.
• Repair any small nicks, chips or cracks in the cabinets
• Paint or stain the cabinets, doors, and draw faces. Apply as many layers as you need to get a nice smooth finish and allow the paint or stain to dry between applications.
• When the paint is entirely dry, and not at all tacky, use a small brush to fix any nicks or blemishes
• Put the old hinges and handles back on or add something new and trendy.
• Reattach the cabinet doors and drawer faces.

And voila, you have a whole new kitchen.

If you know nothing about DIY and have never tackled a home improvement project by yourself before, then it is probably better to call in a reliable, professional kitchen cabinet painting company in to help you refinish your cabinets. But whether you opt for DIY or to hire an expert, it will still cost you a fraction of the price of replacing your cabinets.

“When deciding whether to do it yourself (DIY) or hire a professional cabinet painting company, make sure you get an estimate from a professional. The cost to get the job done right the first time will save you money in the long run.
