Spray Painting Your Cabinet The Right Way

Your kitchen represents the most important place in the home, it is therefore just right that you make it look amazing. One of the ways to do this is by giving your cabinets a fresh coat of paint. Let us look at how you can go about this, and the best paint sprayer for the job.

Have all The Tools and Materials Ready

Make sure you have the right tools and materials for the job. Some of the tools you need include a paint sprayer, spray-can handle, damp cloth, dust mask, and many more. The materials you require include a can of primer and paint in your desired colors.

Prepare the Area and the Target Cabinets

Use a drop cloth to shield the surrounding areas. Use sand paper, or an electric sander (if you own one) to remove any existing finish on the cabinet. Wipe the surface with a damp cloth. For greasy stains, use warm water and detergent to wash it off. Paint and primer cannot adhere to greasy surfaces.

If the cabinet is in a state of damage, repair the holes, scratches and any dents using spackling compound. Work the compound in these spots to offer a smooth, even surface ideal for painting.
