SO excited to give you all a sneak peek at this kitchen transformation in Mindful Gray. The counters in this kitchen are gorgeous, and were crying out for something that was NOT white. I was happy to oblige! I really think kitchen trends are moving towards non-white cabinets, but light, neutral colors that still give you a bright kitchen at the end of the day. Would you dare to paint your cabinets in a color other than white? If I could start from scratch, I definitely would!
One thing learned from most famous paint designers is that the wooden surface is one of the best options for painting the cabinets. Any material that can be wiped off with sandpaper can be used, but the laminated parts are not so good for painting. The glossy surfaces should always be glossed, and a liquid grinder can be used with a combination of a rag. One thing that is really important and should be considered before painting kitchen cabinets is that preparation is as important as painting. You should work step by step and first the cabinets should be emptied and all things taken out and cleaned thoroughly and all dirt should be removed as this can cause problems in the lacquered kitchen cabinets. Drawers should be removed, but you should also label them with the sticky notes so that their real place will be known later. You can also think of removing the entire closet and then painting the picture in a different location, but this is really a time-consuming project that sometimes becomes uneconomical. The worktops and hinges should also be taped to protect them from paint splashes. Wooden spatulas should be used to fill the holes. One of the best rules to maintain the quality of the painting is that the finish should be hard, the harder the finish, the better the finish.[gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="52786,52787,52788,52789,52790,52791,52792,52793,52794,52795,52796,52797"]
