Step 1: Remove drawers, doors, and hardware Remove all of the drawers, cabinet doors, and hardware using a screwdriver. Step 2: Clean surfaces with cleanser and sponge Use grease-cutting cleanser and a sponge to gently, but thoroughly, clean the cabinets, drawers, and doors. Rinse the surfaces and let them dry. Step 3: Fill in dents or divots with wood putty Fill in any dents or divots in the doors and drawers using wood putty and a putty knife. Tip Do not cover the holes for the hardware unless you will be installing new pieces. Step 4: Sand surfaces Lightly scrub all of the surfaces with sandpaper. Step 5: Mark surfaces that won't be painted Use masking tape to cover all of the surfaces that you don't want painted. Step 6: Paint cabinets Paint the cabinets. Use a mini roller for tight spaces like the inside of the cabinet. Use a full-sized roller or a brush everywhere else. Tip Use an airless paint sprayer to smoothly and quickly cover large surfaces, like the door fronts. Step 7: Let paint dry, then reattach Allow the paint to dry completely. Reattach the hardware, and then remount the doors and drawers. Step back and admire your beautiful new kitchen cabinets. Did You Know? Did you know?
