Are you afraid to paint your kitchen cabinets? Here is some inspiration as well as some help to get you started.
Life is a great big canvas, throw all the paint you can on it. – Danny Kaye
If you have been with us for a while, you may have seen our KITCHEN CABINET MAKEOVER.
It was our first time painting so we learned a lot. One, don’t rush the process. It seems obvious but I wanted so much done to this fixer-upper home before we moved in so it got a little hasty. I saw so many pictures of painted cabinets I thought it could be done quickly. It can, but not that quick.
Because of that experience, what we learned, and the fact that my mother-in-law took to doing all her cabinets by herself (info below) that I thought I would share some info for anyone who might be afraid to start the process.
So are you ready to start?

- Remove cabinet doors (place in order or number to keep track of what goes where)
- Sand cabinets
- Apply 2-3 coats of paint (this particular paint advises to sand after each coat but that didn’t work for us). Let dry after each coat of paint.
- Apply 2 coats of the poly (let dry after each coat)
