I finally finished. Here is the after of the kitchen cabinets. I'll take you through it quickly.
Here's the before. No hardware and hohum cabinets that were kind of dark. I have no window in the kitchen area.
First I painted the bottoms. I had doors all over the place. I sanded, cleaned, primed both sides of the doors and did 2 coats on the backs and 3 coats on the fronts. I used Benjamin Moore Advance Decorator White and I loved it. It has a really long dry time, but flattens out any roller marks as it dries.Then you wait 3 days for it to cure-yes I said 3 days!
Put the lowers back together and started all over on the uppers.
Put them back and added the hardware.
Hardware was bought on the internet through Amazon. Cheaper then big box prices.
It really brightened up the kitchen. It also made a more neutral background. Was it worth the mess for 2 weeks and the back aches? Totally worth it. This is the 3rd house that I've painted the cabinets in and I think the BM paint was the best. I used Young House Love for a refresher on painting.
