With a screwdriver remove hardware, doors and drawers.
Clean the surface of the cabinets.
Gently sand the surface to help remove any gloss from the previous coating.
Wipe off the excess dust.
TIP: When painting over new cabinets, you will want to use a coat of primer.
Tape off the counter and cut in using a paint brush.
Using a roller, paint the panels and hard to reach areas starting from the inside out.
With the paint brush, apply paint on the top of the frame. Once the top of the frame is complete, move on to paint the side of the frame.
TIP: Apply paint in the same direction of the wood grain.
Now grab the cabinet doors and drawers and lay them flat on a saddle.
Start painting on the inside and move out toward the edges.
TIP: To ensure that color is as rich as possible, consider adding a second coat.
Allow paint to completely dry. Replace doors and drawers before reinstalling the hardware.
