Renew Kitchen Cabinets

Updated:2013-11-01 16:36:01
Renewing your cabinets is a quick and easy way to add value to your home and update your kitchen without spending a lot of money. Cabinet renewal consists of giving your cabinets a facelift instead of replacing them outright. This process can be completed easily with paint. Refinishing your cabinets can be somewhat time consuming, but the end result is well worth the effort. Patience is the key to having beautifully renewed kitchen cabinets.

Instructions as follows:

                                                      

Firstly, remove the cabinet doors and hardware. Start by removing all the doors from the cabinets. This makes the surfaces easier to manipulate as you work. Simply unscrew the hinges from both the door and the kitchen cabinet. Do this for each hinge and set them aside as you will be using them again, unless you plan to update the hardware as well. Unscrew the handle or knob from the door. The screw is on the opposite side of the door from the hardware.
Secondly, clean the outer cabinet surfaces and doors. Gently rub a cloth dampened with mineral spirits or acetone over the exposed cabinet surfaces and doors to remove oil, dirt and food particles that may hamper the adhesion of the primer. Make sure that you wear gloves during this process.
Thirdly, sand the exposed cabinet surfaces. After the solvent dries, gently scuff the surface of the cabinets with light-duty sandpaper. This gives the paint something to grab on to.
Fourthly, cover the cabinet doors and outer cabinet surfaces with a quality primer. This is one of the most important steps in getting a quality finish. Primers help block stains and give the paint a good surface for gripping. Carefully roll and brush the primer onto the doors and cabinet faces, making sure to apply an even coat. Attend to any runs immediately to prevent irregularities in the final coat. Allow the primer to cure thoroughly. The drying time will depend on the product you are using and ambient air conditions, but most primers will cure in eight hours.
