To painting bathroom cabinets, please buy your paint and primer. If cabinets are made of knotty wood or have stains that can bleed through the new paint, buy a stain-suppress or “blocking” primer. You have to choose between oil-based and latex paint. Latex paint is an attractive choice because it dries fast; mold is resistant, is low odor and cleans up with water. Choose a gloss or satin enamel paint for extra durability. Two; prepare your work area by adding paint drop cloths or newspapers to the floor and some nearby furniture. Three, remove all cabinet doors, drawers, shelves and hardware, using a screwdriver.
Next, clean all surfaces you need to paint bathroom cabinet’s ideas. Most bathroom cabinets will come clean with a general household cleaner. For very dirty or greasy surfaces, use tri-sodium phosphate (TSP). Rinse all surfaces with water and allow them to dry. Wipe loose or floss paint, use a paint scraper. Fill any deep scratches or dents with wood filler or putty, with sparkle. Wipe excess kittens away. When the putty is dry, sand the surface smooth with fine sandpaper (180-grain). Sand all surfaces to paint. This will create a “teeth” or rough surface so that primer and paint will follow properly. Use 150 or 180 sandpaper. Remove all dust from the cabinet surfaces with a tack cloth or damp cloth. Tape off in any adjacent surfaces or fixtures that you do not want to be accidentally painted.
Prime on cabinet doors, shelves and drawers. Apply a thin layer of primer and let it dry. Prime the inside of the cabinet, if you plan to paint it. Let it dry. Apply first coat with paint to doors, drawers and shelves. Use long, even brush strokes and apply a thin coat of paint. Re-coat when the first paint layer has dried completely. Apply a coat of paint to the inside of the cabinets, if necessary. Re-coat once dry. Set cabinet doors and install trays, shelves and hardware once the paint is cured. Late dysfunction may take 14 to 30 days to cure completely. Cure times will noted on the paint can.
Tips and warnings of best paint for bathroom cabinets: first, do not scrimp on the drying time between the coatings with paint as this will prevent paint from curing properly. Recommended drying time is noted on primer and paint boxes. Second, take the time to touch the paint well when it can be opened first and periodically while painting. Third, some bathroom cabinet surfaces are not suitable for paint. Grass, veneer and metal cabinets can be painted with good results. But the paint will not follow well to plastic laminate cabinets. Fourth, if you are scratching and brushing a previously painted wood surface, it is a good idea to wear a mask and goggles.
