On the off chance that your cupboards have plastic overlay surfaces, first, check with a learned paint merchant, and test an example of the paint you wish to use in an unnoticeable territory to guarantee that it will attach to the material.

Level front entryways and drawers are effectively repainted, however woodwork with raised boards, directed profiles or other structural itemizing will require more opportunity to prep and paint. In the event that the woodwork is distorted, gravely worn or harmed, or breaking into pieces at the stuck joints, you can select to purchase new incomplete entryways and drawers and paint them alongside your current cupboards.

Instrument alternatives for repainting incorporate splashing, rolling or brushing with either a characteristic or manufactured swarm brush or a froth brush. All have their favorable circumstances and weaknesses; pick whichever is most suited to the measure of the woodwork to be repainted and your own style of working. The best tool likewise may rely upon the kind of paint or complete you pick.

Step 1

Remove Doors and Hardware

Begin by expelling the Bureau entryways and drawers and evacuate all pulls, handles, locks and other equipment from these parts. Place the equipment and fastens plastic packs inside the cupboards where they will be anything but difficult to find when you're prepared to reassemble everything.

Number every entryway and its relating area as you expel them. Try not to blend them up or the pivots may not arrange legitimately when you reinstall them. On the off chance that you are painting just the drawer fronts, you won't need to expel the appended slides. On the off chance that you do need to evacuate the slides, check them and their areas also.

Step 2

Clean Surfaces

Kitchens are work regions, so oil, steam, and nourishment splatters are normal. Before you start sanding or painting, clean the majority of the surfaces to be repainted with an answer produced using one section tri-sodium phosphate and four sections water. Flush, however, don't douse the cupboards. Enable them to dry completely.

Step 3


Daintily sand the entryways on all sides and faces. Utilize a wood sanding square to avert adjusting over the wood edges. On the off chance that you're repainting venture is only a facelift for the cupboards, you don't have to sand and paint within the cupboards; veil off the insides with painters' tape for a spotless complete and sand just the front surfaces and unmistakable edges of the bureau confront outlines.

While sanding, there is no compelling reason to evacuate the greater part of the old paint on the off chance that it is sound and all around followed; simply roughen the surface to furnish the new paint with a firm, clean base for better grip. Give careful consideration to particularly worn regions of old complete, which regularly get the most utilize. Additionally, make certain to sand over sparkling ranges to deglaze any staying past wrap up. Stiff-necked completions may require rubbing with denatured liquor and fine steel fleece.

In the event that the old paint is chipping off in places, it demonstrates the complete did not stick well to the wood surface. This is ordinarily because of dampness or oily buildup getting under the paint layer or into the wood itself, which can be normal in kitchens. Sand these ranges to uncovered wood and spot-prime with a stain-executing groundwork/sealer before repainting. Wherever you sand down to uncovered wood, attempt to mix or "quill" the edges where the old paint meets the wood so the new paint will lay level, and the paint edges won't be noticeable or "transmit" through the new wrap up.

Completely vacuum the sanding dust from all surfaces. On the off chance that you have a pneumatic air compressor, utilize high-weight air to blow the tidy out of hole or embellishment points of interest. Wipe down the ranges to be painted with an attach material to get any outstanding sanding buildup.

Polished veneer paint was at one time the favored complete for kitchen cupboards since it opposes stains and water and is effectively cleaned, yet the present water-based completions are less demanding to work with and give a similarly strong wrap-up.

Step 5

Apply the Paint

Begin by painting within edges and openings of the face outlines, at that point the external bureau sides, lastly the face outline fronts. This enables you to work rapidly in the less basic regions, and empowers you to see and right any dribbles or smirch on the most noticeable ranges.

Next, paint the bureau entryways and drawer fronts, alongside any different wood pieces or moldings. In the event that these parts have raised or steered highlights, make sure to stream the paint into fissure and corners, yet don't enable it to aggregate in these spots.

Continuously apply paint in thin, light coats, however make sure to cover all regions. Thin coats leave less obvious brushstrokes and dry all the more rapidly. Try not to lay the complete on thickly and don't exhaust the brush — an excessive number of brush strokes will make air rises in the get done with, leaving knocks and pits when it dries.

Enable the paint to dry for no less than four hours between coats. Whenever dry, resand all surfaces gently to set them up for the second coat, wipe away all sanding dust with a tack fabric, then repaint. Two layers of value paint are generally all that is important, yet you might need to include a third coat since kitchen cupboards take bunches of discipline from cooking warmth and everyday utilize, and wood surfaces require all the insurance they can get.
