Paint and Glaze Cabinets with Behr Paints
Kitchen furniture that have been surpassed can knock down the look of even the most modern kitchen. But the old, stained kitchen furniture can be finished with a new coat of paint to give the whole kitchen a quick face wash. Behr paints have been offering homeowners the ability to update the color of a home since 1947, when the company began selling their paint outside a 800-square foot family garage in Pasadena, California. Today Behr paints are manufactured throughout the country and sold worldwide. You can find them in paint shops and home improvement.
1. Remove items from inside the cabinets and drawers and from the worktops. Place a cloth on the countertop surface, and design another piece of fabric in a well-ventilated work area, such as an open garage. Tape of the area where the wall joins the cabinet frame using a 2-inch wide edge of painter’s tape.
2. Remove doors from cabinets and drawers and place them on the piece of fabric. Remove hardware such as knobs, handles, and door hinges and drawers and set aside.
3. Sand door surfaces, drawers and frame cupboard with 220 grit sandpaper. Work with the natural grain of the wood as you sand and avoid going against the current. Sand until the stain is rough to the touch, then clean the clean surfaces with an antistatic cloth.
4. Immerse the 2-inch nylon brush in the fully blended paint. Apply the paint to the inside edges of the cabinet frames where the doors come together and close. Run the brush with the grain of the wood for the uniform distribution of the paint.
5. With the paint-cutting brush on the edges of the cabinet frames where the wall cabinets meet.
6. Pour the paint into the container of the paint tray and push a paint roller through it. Distribute the paint evenly by running the roller along the fluted part of the paint tray.
7. Apply paint to the large surfaces of the cabinet frames with the roller, making sure to pass it over the areas where the brush was used to cut around the edges.
8. Apply a thin coat of paint around the edges of each cabinet door and drawer using the brush. If the doors of the cabinets have a recessed panel, paint the inside with the brush as well. Use a paint roller to paint the inside and front of the cabinet and drawer doors. Hover over the areas where the brush was used to minimize the appearance of brushstrokes.
9. Allow the paint to dry, then apply a second coat if necessary. Allow cabinet parts to dry overnight before re-connecting hardware and drawer and door installation.
