Cabinet Refinishing An Easy Home Fix

Posted on 18. Jun, 2013 by in Construction

An easy home fix is repainting your kitchen cabinets.  This can give your kitchen an updated look for little money.

This project can be accomplished in a weekend with a little hard work. The first step, is to remove all the handles and knobs from the cabinets. Before removing the doors, make sure each is marked so you know exactly where it needs to be put back up.

After removing the doors, lightly sand all surfaces to assure good paint adherence. Be sure to clean all surfaces before priming. There is no need to concern yourself with the inside of the cabinets, as these will be covered when you are finished. You can, however, use contact paper to hide any imperfections.

After the primer is dry, use a paint brush, roller, or power sprayer to paint the faces of the cabinets. A semi gloss paint, of high quality, is needed to ensure durability over time. Two coats will probably be needed to ensure good coverage. After giving the paint sufficient time to dry, re installation should be a snap following your previous markings. Finally, you can put all of the hardware in place. With all of the money this simple process has saved, you can even treat yourself to new cabinet hardware

Giving your kitchen a whole new updated look is an inexpensive Easy Home Fix. Whether you do it yourself, or hire someone to do it for you, it can save tons of money and give your kitchen a fabulous new look.
