If you want to update your kitchen but don’t want to tear down your current cabinets there is an alternative. Painting your kitchen cabinets is an easy way to bring your kitchen up-to-date without doing a full-blown renovation. I’ll show you how I painted my cabinet bases and new cupboard doors to update my kitchen with a fresh and modern look.
How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets
Today I’m sharing the second part of my Kitchen Makeover series.
This blog post will focus on painting cabinets. Painting is an easy way to update your space without major construction.
I will have a blog post explaining how I installed the glass panels you see in the three cabinets on the right of the sink soon.
I was provided new cabinet doors by Fast Cabinet Doors. They arrived unfinished which gave me the opportunity to paint the new doors as well as the cabinet bases to match.
If you decided to replace the doors like I did with cabinet doors from Fast Cabinet Doors you can choose to have them paint them for you. Check out the finished cabinet doors that they offer here.
Painting unfinished cabinets is not difficult or very different from painting any other kind of surface. The main thing to consider is that you use the appropriate type of paint. You want a paint that is super durable that can be cleaned and scrubbed on a regular basis. It needs to protect the cabinets from the moisture in the kitchen.
Most hardware stores carry a paint that has specifically formulated for cabinets. Peep the video where I show you the exact steps I took to paint all the parts of the cabinets. Oh, and if you’re not subscribed to my channel, make sure you hit that red button and subscribe!
