Updating builder cabinets Adult card chat check credit free no no room

Think about the banging, food slinging, moisture, and heat that your cabinets are subjected to.As a highly visible and frequently abused kitchen element, you definitely want these babies to come out smooth and durable.You might be tempted to rush into painting, but let me warn you that your finished product depends entirely on this prep work.

My cabinets had a glossy veneer which I didn’t sand completely through-I just sanded enough to take the sheen off and give the surface some grip.

Be sure to wipe away the dust with a tack cloth or damp lint free cloth.

Above, Sarah of Smitten Studio renovated her Michigan cabinet and built these fresh white shelves in their small kitchen, which looks special versus expected. Gus and Lula used a jigsaw on some scraps of plywood and came up with feet that they then installed flush with the base of their cabinets.

This minor detail took very little time and added a significant selling point.

After much research and speaking with several paint experts, I decided to go with a new product by Benjamin Moore, “Advance” in a satin finish.

I did come across stories of good results with BM’s Satin Impervo (both oil and waterborne) as well as Aura.

If your kitchen has a complicated layout, you may want to label what came from where to make the re-install less of a headache.

Otherwise, get out your cleaning and sanding supplies.

I love working on this blog, posting pictures, writing articles and basically fluffing everything up to make it pretty.
