How to start Painting White Kitchen Cabinets With Glaze

Home Improvement,Home Repair
White cabinets with a glazed finish are a beautiful design trend in the kitchen. Before painting kitchen cabinets white with glaze, be sure you have a clear idea of how to proceed. A cabinet painting job gone wrong is a disaster. The quality of your kitchen cabinets is an important factor should you later choose to sell your home. Be sure to take this project very seriously.

CHOOSING OIL-BASED PAINT Oil-based paint, known as alkyd paint, will result in a nicer finish with minimal brush strokes. The working time with this paint allows the best opportunity to achieve complete, smooth coverage before it begins to dry. This longer dry time will slow down the process of completing your project.

Working with alkyd paint will require turpentine to clean your brushes and any spills that may occur. Oil-based paint also provides a longer lasting finish and holds up much better than water-based paint.

CHOOSING WATER-BASED PAINT Water-based paint is commonly known as latex paint. Latex paint is easy to work with but may leave brush marks due to the quick drying time. Sanding between coats takes more time to accomplish due to the many brush strokes. Water can be used to clean brushes and spills.

SUPPLIES LIST This list of supplies should be gathered before you begin painting kitchen cabinets white with glaze. -paint deglosser/primer -paint -glaze -small foam roller brush for large flat surfaces of cabinets -2 small bristle brushes (one for paint, one for glaze) -rags free from lint -turpentine if using alkyd paint -220 grit sanding sponges -tack cloth

STEPS TO PAINTING KITCHEN CABINETS WHITE WITH GLAZE Use a sander-deglosser to clean all surfaces of cabinets prior to painting. This step is necessary to clean old grime off the surfaces. This eliminates the need to use sandpaper on the old finish before you begin painting.

After selecting the type of paint and the color you prefer, you will choose a tinted glaze. Glaze is a translucent paint that will add an antique look to your cabinetry. Now you are ready to begin painting kitchen cabinets white with glaze.

Before applying paint, coat everything with one coat of primer. Let dry and begin the painting process. Once you have painted two coats of paint on your cabinets, sanding between coats, you will let them dry thoroughly. Once dry, apply a thin layer of glaze. Wait a few minutes and wipe glaze with a lint-free rag to remove the majority of the glaze. Leave a small amount of glaze in edges and corners.

Be sure to remove an equal amount of glaze on each piece that you are painting. Unequal distribution on individual pieces will be very noticeable once your kitchen is put back together. After the glaze dries, you can go back and add more glazing where necessary.

When the glazing step is completed, you will need to apply two coats of clear sealer. This final step will protect your finish and add years to the quality of the project. Sand between the two clear coats just as you did with the paint coats.

Painting kitchen cabinets white with glaze will take quite a few days to accomplish. The result will be well-worth the time taken.
