Steps we take :
- Clean the cabinets thoroughly using a degreaser to remove any dirt, grime, or grease that may have accumulated on them. Rinse them with clean water and let them dry completely.
- Sand the cabinets with a fine-grit sandpaper to create a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to. Be sure to remove any dust or debris with a tack cloth.
- Apply a primer to the cabinets using a brush or a sprayer. Allow the primer to dry completely.
- Sand the cabinets again, this time with a very fine-grit sandpaper. This will help smooth out any imperfections and create an even surface for the paint.
- Apply the first coat of paint using a sprayer, brush, or roller. Use long, even strokes to ensure an even finish. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- Sand the cabinets again with a fine-grit sandpaper to remove any bumps or unevenness in the surface of the paint. Clean any dust or debris with a tack cloth.
- Apply a second coat of paint, using the same technique as the first. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- Sand the cabinets a final time with an extra-fine-grit sandpaper. Clean the cabinets with a tack cloth.
- Apply a clear coat of polyurethane or lacquer to the cabinets to achieve a glossy finish. Allow the clear coat to dry completely.
- Sand the cabinets lightly with a very fine-grit sandpaper, and clean with a tack cloth.
- Apply a second coat of clear coat. Allow the clear coat to dry completely.
With these steps, your cabinets should have a beautiful, glossy finish that will be the envy of all your friends and family!
