Tips for Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets (Part 2)

So now you have some helpful tips to get your started, I wanted to show you some helpful videos I took on how to prime, sand, and clean your kitchen cabinet doors, drawers, and framing.

In order to have that pristine, almost sprayed-on-paint end result, it is SUPER important to prep your surfaces correctly. This includes sanding, cleaning, and priming. I rolled out the primer and paint on my cabinets using cabinet painting rollers and a 1 1/2 inch paint brush. This is pretty much what my normal set-up looked like (minus the primer):

This second video goes over the importance of HOW to prime or paint your surfaces for the best finish. There is a method to the madness, and again I apologize for the unedited videos and if I'm not entirely consistent on what I label things (flat surfaces versus edges/sides):

Stay tuned for the next video installment tomorrow, where I talk about the importance of and how to sand and clean your doors after priming and painting.
