Kitchen: Take Two

One couple’s adventure in kitchen remodeling

Painted cabinets?

Posted by kitchentaketwo on February 10, 2009

Our first thought was to brighten up the kitchen by painting the cabinets and paneling white and adding a neutral sand color to the walls.

So, we began this process, and with the help of Scott’s parents, we were sure it was going to turn out great.

What we should have done, though, was research. We used white latex paint on the cabinets…bad idea.

The cabinet doors have many grooves and edges, which makes painting them difficult and tedious.

The primer and paint looked gunky…and still do.

We should have researched how to paint the cabinets – which would have included washing, sanding, primering and painting with oil-based paint.

Hindsight is 20-20.
