Once we have made the decision that we want to paint kitchen furniture, it is important to know the steps that we must give to be impeccable.
They are essential steps that will give us a professional result that lasts a long time.
It is very important that the products and brushes or rollers we use are of high quality.
We will need a flat surface where to place the doors to paint them and a boat where we will put all the hardware, hinges, screws and handles, which will then reuse or we can choose new ones.
Step 1: Degrease all surfaces we are going to paint
Any surface to be painted should be clean of grease. We remove the doors of the cabinets to access well to all the areas where the fat accumulates and that are of difficult access when they are placed. As we will paint later, you can use any product of the market as it does not matter that it deteriorates the brightness or the current painting.
Step 2: Apply a sealant primer
The primer is used to facilitate the adhesion of the paint to the surface we are going to paint, in the kitchens, the furniture suffers many products and we would not like that after the work done, the painting began to rise or wear out. If our doors have a shiny finish, it is advisable to apply the sandpaper before the primer, but without removing the existing paint, only the final shine.
Step 3: Paint with a synthetic enamel or acrylic
Because of its characteristics, synthetic enamel is the most durable. In this room of the house, paint manufacturers advise the products to the solvent because they are the ones that will guarantee us a more durable result and are those that best resist the abrasive cleaning products, do not absorb so much light and prevent that the paint Change color over time. If you have it within reach of the enamel of Mary Paint, is the water and you can also use it in the kitchen, as it does not yellow and resists the same cleaning products, and this new product already contains by its technology, a primer which would save the second step mentions ado. I leave an example of a kitchen door with Mary Paint.
With two coats of paint well extended, is enough to get the desired color, if white will require three layers.
Step 4: Sand between layers of paint
Whether we choose to paint with a brush, as with a roller or a pistol, it is very important to pass a fine hand of sandpaper to the primer and then to the paint between layers.
With a grain sponge sandpaper 180 or 140, remove all impurities from the paint, as well as any hair that the roller has been able to leave or the dust that has accumulated during drying.
Step 5: Use a final protector
We have already reached the end of our work and we only have to protect it. Choose the final finish of the furniture, Matt, Satin or shine on the final protector and apply a thin layer of a product that absorbs light as little as possible and that is resistant.
Of course for 72 hours it would be advisable not to cook
