Correctly Paint and Glaze a Bathroom Cabinet

Updated:2013-12-27 11:28:56
Changing the appearance of the bathroom cabinets can be a step in changing the entire look of your bathroom. A new coat of paint and glaze can update the cabinets to match a new decor or restore the appearance of an old, worn cabinet face. The paint provides the main color for your cabinet, while the glaze serves as a highlight for that color. The combination can go much further than the application of paint alone, adding a complexity to your cabinet's appearance not possible with other finishing methods.

Instructions as follows:

                                                    

Firstly, remove the cabinet hinges and handles with a screwdriver, and place the cabinet doors on a flat surface. Clean the cabinets with a pH-neutral cleanser, using a damp sponge to remove any dirt or debris. Rinse the cleanser from the cabinets with clean water, and then pat them dry with a piece of cloth.
Secondly, remove existing paint or finish from the cabinet and cabinet doors with a chemical paint stripper. Apply the stripper to the cabinets with a paintbrush. Allow the stripper to dwell on the surface of the cabinet for the manufacturer's suggested length of time to dissolve the paint or finish. Scrape away the stripper with a putty knife, then wipe the surface clean with a rag.
Thirdly, prepare the cabinet for paint by sanding it with 220-grit sandpaper. Use a circular motion with the sandpaper to smooth the surface, removing any paint or finish left after the paint stripper. Wipe the surface with a rag to remove sandstone residue.
Fourthly, place a strip of masking tape along the edges of any surfaces adjacent to the cabinet, to protect them from paint spills.
Fifthly, apply a layer of primer to the cabinets and doors. The primer creates a surface to which the topcoat of paint can adhere, as well as concealing any imperfections in the wood. Wait for the primer to dry completely, and then sand the primer with 150-grit sandpaper to remove any high points or signs of brushstrokes. Wipe with a rag to remove sanding residue.
