- brushes and/or roller
- painters’ tape
- palm sander or 150 grit sandpaper
- microfiber towel
- The first step to painting your bathroom cabinets is to take a degreaser cleaner and fully clean your cabinets. You will want a nice clean surface for the paint to stick to. Removing all residues will give your paint a nice clean surface to stick to.
- Remove the doors hardware, handles and drawers. Unscrew any hardware and remove it from the doors and drawers completely. You will want your cabinets to be obstruction free when you begin to paint.
- Use painters tape to mask off the walls and under the vanity above or near your cabinets. Make sure the tape is straight and pressed down firmly in place.
- Pull out your palm sander or sanding block and sand down your cabinets. You will want to give the cabinets a good sanding to give the paint something to stick to.
- Use a damp microfiber towel to wipe down the cabinets and drawers to make sure that all the sanding dust is wiped off before you paint.
- Once you have cleaned off all of the sanding dust you will want to coat you cabinets, doors and drawers with a coat of primer. This will give the paint a nice surface to stick to and help to make your paint more uniform.
- Use paint roller or paint brush to cover the cabinets in a layer of paint. Make sure you get into the edges, corners and grooves.
- After the first coat of paint is dry, paint a second coat. This will help to give your cabinets a finished look and clean look.
- Let cabinets fully dry.
- Once dry, you can re-assemble the cabinets and drawers by applying the hardware and putting everything back together.
Giving your cabinets a quick coat of paint can help give your bathroom a facelift without the extra cost of replacing the cabinets.
