Tips for Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets (Part 3)

Welcome to the third and last part of my short series on helpful tips for painting your kitchen cabinets. Yesterday, I posted two videos that went over the importance of lighting and in what order to paint your cabinet surfaces for the best result, and today I have two more videos that cover how to and the importance of sanding and cleaning your doors/drawers/frames before moving on.

This first video goes over the type of sanding tools I use and how to sand your kitchen cabinet doors in between coats of primer and paint.

This second video goes over the importance of why and how to clean your kitchen cabinet doors after you sand.

That's it folks for my little series on helpful tips for painting your kitchen cabinet doors! I hope the videos shed a little extra light onto some of the minutia of prepping your surfaces before those two, final coats of paint. Believe me, that extra work makes a difference!

I've had a my house painter, Bill, who paints houses and cabinetry for a living compliment me on my work and even ask ME for tips, so I take that as one of the highest compliments. The extra work also ensures the quality of adhesion, which in the 6 months that we've been using our "new" cabinets, we've not had one chip or flake come off, so that says something.
