Painting kitchen cabinets
Choosing the perfect colour is the least of your problems if you’re planning to paint your own kitchen cabinets. “What many people don’t know is that painting kitchen cabinets are a lot trickier than a bedroom dresser,” says Newell Slade, a general contractor for Newell Building, LLC. “Often, there is a buildup of cooking grease and finger oils on the surface of the wood. Prep means extensive cleaning with a degreasing agent such as diluted TSP and using oil-based paint, fed through a sprayer.” This project is quite an undertaking and involves specialized equipment and safety measures than most homeowners don’t realize. A skilled painter knows how to paint cabinets in a timely fashion with beautiful results.
