How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets in 4 Easy Steps


Looking to give your kitchen a whole new look? Refinishing your cabinets can be a daunting task, but with these tips from Country Chic Paint, you'll feel like a painting pro. Read this post to learn all about how to paint your kitchen cabinets.

In this tutorial we'll show you our tips and tricks on how to refurbish your kitchen cabinets with Country Chic Paint products for a beautiful and durable finish.

Step 1) Detach and clean your cabinet doors

The very first thing you'll want to do when refinishing your kitchen cabinets is to take each door off its hinges and give them a good cleaning. Since there are often food contaminants and oil in kitchens, they're prone to being quite messy. We recommend giving each door a good wipe down with a mixture of water and vinegar to start. Make sure you follow this with a wipe down using just water to remove any last remaining surface contaminants as you don't want cleaning products leaving a residue.

Step 2) Do you need to prime?

Before you dive right in, we highly recommend painting a few test patches on just one cabinet door to make sure you're getting great adhesion and the surface underneath isn't bleeding through. If you're not happy with the adhesion, it might be a good idea to start with a coat of our Clear Bonding Primer to guarantee your work will last for years to come!

Step 3) Apply your paint

Shake and stir your paint, then pour some off into a cup or jar to avoid contamination of your entire can. Apply paint in one direction to ensure a smooth, even finish with minimal brush strokes. Keep in mind that it's better to do two thin coats than one thick coat.

Make sure you allow the paint to dry for at least 24 hours before proceeding to the next step!

Step 4) Finish with Tough Coat

Because kitchen cabinets need to withstand a lot of usage, we recommend finishing them with our Tough Coat. It will give your cabinets a very high-end, durable finish that can stand up to daily wear and tear and will wipe clean beautifully. Two coats is best for optimal protection.

Keep in mind that it takes about one week for Tough Coat to gain full strength, so be extra careful if you decide to use your cabinets straight away.
