Painting Techniques for Rustic Kitchen Cabinets
If a complete kitchen remodel is not in the budget, painting rustic kitchen cabinets is a cheaper alternative and can quickly update old cabinets. Use an oil-based paint or acrylic enamel to paint the cabinets, especially if they are structurally sound and in good condition. Prepare the cabinets; remove cabinet doors by turning the hinges with either a drill or a screwdriver. This will make it easier to paint the doors and ensure even coverage. Clean the cupboards before painting, so the paint will stick to the surface. Mineral turpentine or a similar product can effectively remove all the dirt and dirt that has built over the years. A fine sandpaper grains canvas sand out for the current coating paint. After grinding, apply a paint primer with either rolls or a brush. You do not have to paint the inside of the cabinets unless you just want to.
A paint sprayer can ensure a smooth, professional paint finish for kitchen cabinets. The syringe should be kept several inches away from the cabinets. Ambient surfaces must be covered in plastic to protect them. Sprayers can be hired at some hardware and home improvement stores. A paint spray can also be a suitable way to apply primer to ensure a smooth finish. If you use a high-volume paint sprayer, low pressure setting must be applied so that the paint does not spray everywhere.
Painting with a roll will ensure thick, even coverage in a shorter time and without the brush strokes from a paint brush. Use a brush to reach any tight or areas difficult to reach. The reel can paint all wide, flat or open surfaces.
