First remove all doors and hardware. Check your hardware wherever you are to replace or keep the existing one. All surfaces must be sanded very well with suitable wallpaper, after which you dust and sweep these areas. All cabinets must be washed with suitable cleaning and unloading. Time to choose the color you want. Before painting, all cabinets must be applied with an odorless oil-based stain blocking primer. Apply putty, wood filling, sand and caulk where needed. Apply an oil blend paint in satin or semi-gloss. Hold 2-3 coatings that sand between each color. It is time to change doors and hardware. It is only very important to prepare the cabinets properly before you start painting. The cabinets must be cleaned very well and make small rough edges on the surface so that the paint will stick. Oil-based primers are better because they have superior glue quality. It is also very important to apply the paint as soon as the oil primer has already been emptied. You can consider applying non-yellowish clear polyurethane to the painted surfaces when they have served for extra protection. You can also consider adding small wooden moldings to your cupboard doors and drawers and decorative crown molds on top for a brand new dramatic look for your newly renovated cabinets.
