Kitchen Cabinets Paint Kitchen cupboards

By | December 5, 2017

Hi everyone, hope you're all well.

Welcomeback to my channel.

I'm here today with a bit of a renovation or makeover video I supposebecause I have just painted my kitchen cupboards and kitchen drawers or kitchen units, whateveryou want to call it.

So I thought I would share with you how I did it and also the processand let you know whether I think it's advisable or not, because this is something that I wasn'tsure about taking on because I've read all sorts of different things and seen all differentvideos on youtube about doing this and it looked like quite an effort.

Well it was quitean effort but I'll talk you through it anyway! And then you can decide yourselves if it'ssomething that you might want to try and do yourselves.

So hopefully this video will beuseful to you if you are considering painting your kitchen units.

So I decided the otherweek that I would do this as a little project, the reason being I really didn't like thecolour of our kitchen cupboards as they were, they were this kind of ash birch effect laminate,not for me, nothing wrong those if you've got those I don't mean any offence by that,they just didn't look right, I didn't like them.

So I picked up this paint in Wilko'sand this is furniture and cupboard paint.

So it is designed for this, it's not glossor anything like that it's specific.

So I picked up the paint and I picked up the primer.

And I'm slightly obsessed with painting things in our flat grey at the minute, there's loadof grey going on everywhere.

I think you can't go wrong with a bit of grey to be honest withyou! What I would say is that the colour if you hold it up against the farrow and ballpaint chart if you know your paints, it is almost identical to Manor House Grey so ifyou want to get an idea of the shade of grey it's going to come out it is pretty much identical.

I don't know whether to show you guys a before and after shot now or not, I don't know whetherto make you wait until the end of the video to see it finished because otherwise you'llprobably switch off.

I don't know.

Ok, well let's pop a quick one in.

This is before.

And this is after.

I hope that you think it's an improvement.

I hope that you don't thinkit's worse.

Let me know in the comments I'd be interested to know your thoughts.

So let'stalk you through the process.

So the first thing I did was remove all the handles fromall the cupboard drawers using a drill and a screwdriver for the ones that were a bittricky to access.

Then I went on to clean the entire kitchen with a sugar soap solution.

Sugar soap is a detergent it's really good for removing grease and things so if you'repainting anywhere you should probably be using this if you're painting walls you spray iton or you can mix it in with some water and just get a sponge and wash away the greaseand grime and everything.

Particularly paying attention to around the cooker and anythingthat's kind of above things where you wouldn't normally wipe it, it was absolutely grosstake a look at the cloth, yuk.

Yep, but you know who cleans up there on a regular basis.

Not me I can tell you that! The next stage is to sand it all down so you need to makethe surface more grippy? I've used these angled sanding pads so they're kind of like a foampad with sand paper all over them but the good thing about these is they're angled soyou can get in and behind corners and things so I'd really recommend those if you're doingany sort of sanding projects, if you've got a flat edge you can't and you're trying toget into a corner it kind of blocks it so that pointy bit on each side is really reallyuseful especially if like me you've been a little bit lazy and you haven't taken allthe doors off.

A I thought it would be a big hassle to take them all off, put them backon.

And B I didn't really have the space to lay out all the doors to paint them in myflat.

It did actually work ok so if you're thinking of if that's what's putting you offnot painting your cupboard doors, the thought of pulling everything off and putting it backon again you don't have to, it was fine.

The next thing I did was mask of any areas thatI didn't want to get paint on and cover all the kitchen worktops with extra large dustsheets that you can pick up in any diy shop and I put a tarpaulin down on the floor toprotect the floor.

And then I went onto the priming.

And I'm putting it on with an angledbrush and a good quality roller.

I say a good quality roller because if you get a cheaproller it's going to start to shrink with the paint and then when you're putting iton it's going to be uneven so one side might be more painty than the other side so definitelyjust spend a little bit more money on your roller and also your paint brush, becauseyou don't want a paint brush that's going to be moulting and leaving hairs all overit, so make sure you get, doesn't have to be really expensive but just make sure thatwhen you feel your roller it's got some firmness to it and when check the paint brush isn'tone of those horrible cheap ones that's got hairs going all over the shop because thatis just going to be making for a really messy finish.

So with those I just started to applythe primer and it went on really nicely, I applied quite a thin layer because you wantto have a really even coat as your base.

If you do see any little bumps and lumps justpick them off or you can sand them off and just get rid of all of those another littletip for you guys is if you've got any awkward areas that you don't want to get paint onsuch as the door handles, I couldn't get all of the door handles off because of the waythe doors were constructed so my tip is to use some tin foil because you can just scrunchit on and it moulds into shape, it's going to protect it from any paint and it's reallyeasy to pull off again afterwards.

You're not going to be left with any sticky residue thatyou would be left with from things like masking tape.

I'd also use tin foil to line my paintingtray so that when you've finished painting you can just pull the tinfoil out and chuckit in the bin and your painting tray is still good for the next day.

And I also use tinfoilto wrap around the roller and the brushes because again you can just get it really tightand scrunch it on to make sure that it's air tight.

So then onto the painting.

Having leftthe primer to dry overnight I started painting the cupboard doors.

One technique I did usewas to just to keep all of the doors closed, paint across all of the fronts.

Let that drya bit and then go around and do all of the edges either with a roller or with the brush.

I found that using the roller is definitely the best thing, so the roller just put iton really nicely you just keep going until you smooth out all the bumps and any streaks.

So once the paint had dried I gave it a second coat just to go over any areas that I thoughtsome of the white was still showing through.

I think it looks really smooth, I think italmost looks like it's been sprayed it's so good and it's really resistant so I've alreadydone a little test now it's dry where I've scratched at it a bit with a fork and it hasn'tscratched it so I think it's going to be really durable.

It's a nice in between it's not toodark and it's not too light.

It's got some bluey tones in it so it works really wellin the day light so throughout the day it becomes a lot lighter and brighter which Ithink is good for a kitchen, and in the evening all that grey becomes a little bit darkerso if you want just switch on the odd lamp or whatever it's all going to become a bitmore intimate and I think it looks really good.

So I would recommend giving this a goif A you've got the time and B you've got the patience because it is a bit fiddly andthere is a few stages to it.

But over all I did it in 3 days and on each of those daysI probably spent 2 to 3 hours max, so it wasn't like I was spending all day every day doingit so I'd say all in all it probably took about 8 hours maybe, probably with all theputting things away and getting things out and all the rest of it.

So I'd recommend thispaint and I'd recommend painting your cupboard doors if you want to give your kitchen a quickrefresh.
