Can I spray paint my cupboards

by Marilyn

Hi,

I would like paint my maple colored laminated cupboards. Would spray paint work or should I use a brush and roller on them. Also, if I do spray them what would the process be to get them painted.

I want to put new knobs on my kitchen cabinet doors but don't want to buy new hinges and remove the doors.

How do I prepare the hinges so that the paint will adhere?

How to fix peeling paint
on cupboard doors & drawers

by Darlene

Hi,

I'm wondering if someone could help me with a problem that I'm having. I just purchased a home where I have found that the kitchen cupboards are painted with latex over an oil based paint.

Primer was obviously not used and the latex is now peeling. Is it possible to somehow remove the old peeling paint and then prime and re-paint the cupboard surface.


Hi Darlene,

I have a written an article called painting kitchen cupboards that deals with cupboards that have peeling paints. You might want to check it out.

Regards,
Shawn.

Staining un-finished Ikea type kitchen cabinets.

by Rob

Hi,

I'm thinking of purchasing those solid wood un-finished Ikea type kitchen cabinets.

Can you give me an idea as to the process for staining, sanding and applying a Varathane.

I am sooo frustrated with my finished cabinets

by sarah
(mississippi)

Ok. so, here goes. my husband and i decided to remodel our cabinets from a 1989 house we recently bought. the cabinet guy who was highly recommended to us recommended another guy. we brought him in and he gave us his recommendations.

he would measure all the openings for the boxes in the kitchen, laundry and 3 baths to order mdf cabinet doors and drawers. we kept all the layouts and existing boxes which were oak the same. he ordered all the mdf for us and used a latex primer by s williams and then painted them with sherwin williams promar 200.

well, the result was absolutely horrible. he had them at his "shop" doing them so we have no idea what he did and did not do, which according to him he sanded and re=sanded and put a lot of coats of primer and paint. no. we got several people to look at these. you can feel the roughness on all the edges and see the raw mdf.

the cabinets look absolutely flat and dingy. they show every imperfection. the paint was supposedly semigloss. well, now here we are....what next? i want to start over. we can't order new doors. my painter friend tried to take 15 doors and hang them in our carport and spray a velour oil based paint over them. they still are not looking great.

he then took one and put b.moore high build primer, then sanded and put velour on...still orange peel look.

help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
