How To Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets Without Losing Your Mind
1. REMOVE CABINET DOORS:
The first thing I did was remove all the doors (don't remove and empty the drawers yet at this point.. ) Stack the doors up and save them for later but leave the drawers in the cabinets!
I know a lot of people label every door and drawer so they can figure out where they go back. I didn't bother to do that. There was enough variation in the sizes of my doors (and the fact my mounting hardware was standard) I knew they would only go back a certain way. When all was said and done, I had to sand, prime and paint THIRTY NINE door and drawer fronts. (This doesn't include four in the island I previously stained, or the two I removed to create open shelving.)
That is a lot! However, I wasn't even dealing with the doors/drawers at this point.
