How To Paint Cabinets With A Paint Brush (and get a near-perfect finish!) Hi, I found this very interesting, as i am planning on painting my bathroom vanities and kitchen cabinets this summer. I was following another blogger who also used the same primer that you use, and she also made note
On a raised-panel cabinet door, notice that the panel is loose within the frame (even if it doesn't move when you touch it). That allows the wood to shrink and swell with seasonal humidity changes. When painting panels, use the tip of your brush to force paint into the tiny gap between the panel and frame.
To paint bathroom cabinets, start by removing the doors and hardware. Then, lightly sand the cabinets with high-grit sandpaper, which will help the paint adhere to them. Next, apply a thin coat of primer to all of the surfaces you plan on painting, and let it dry completely.
Thanks for sharing all the pros and cons. We painted the kitchen cabinets in our old kitchen using latex paint (no sprayer, just the old fashioned way!). Ours were 80s - or maybe 90s oak, too, and I was really happy with the updated look. It was a pain, however, with all the prep work, but much more affordable than installing new cabinets!
