Add Some Color To Your Kitchen

1. Remove It
Remove your cabinet doors and hardware. While you're at it, spray paint that hardware with a new, shiny coat of metallic silver. After all, your new cabinets deserve all the bling they can handle!

2. Clean It
Paint won't set properly on a dirty cabinet. Be sure to clean the cabinet's surfaces to remove any dirt, grease or grime. This is also a good time to sand down any unwanted knots or blemishes in the wood.

3. Prime It
Priming is one of the key steps to any paint job -- never, ever skip it! Feel free to use a disposable brush for this task, as the finish isn't quite as important.
 
4. Paint It
Use a high-quality brush and apply two to three thin coats of paint, letting dry between each coat. Always paint with the grain, as opposed to against the grain to ensure a clean, streak-free finish.

5. Hang It
After your paint has dried, hang those new cabinets and admire your new kitchen.
 
Break out the celebratory spritzers; you're finished!
