kitchen cabinet paint prep


Ok, so I have my SW adhesive primer, the SW ProClassic acrylic paint, and have lightly sanded with 150 grit my cabinets that were previously painted and coated in satin oil based poly. Also cleaned them really well. Anything I'm forgetting?

Sounds like your ready to rock. You did clean them, particularly where anything greasy was, right?

Oh ya, check!
Are you going to remove doors/ hinges? If you are, tape a label to each thing to exactly where it was from, tape screws to it. Come up with a numbering system. (I've seen some use baggies)
Also mark the doors out of sight- on top of top doors, on bottom of bottom with a putty knife or something ( roman #s work) so they are easy to figure out what goes where when you're done.
More important that you can realize- will save hours!

when using s/w adhesion primer start off by spraying some water on the bristles especially at the heel of your brush then drying off any excess water.also with this primer you will need to clean your brush more often.its great primer but its brutal on brushes

Great advice thanks! esp. keeping track of hinges/screws/door placement, I've only removed a couple doors and put the hardware in baggies so I will definitely start labeling each set as to where it goes. I did prime those 2 doors and it is an interesting primer, dries very quickly holy cow, can barely work it in and its starting to dry but I'm getting the hang of it. As far as cleaning goes, just around the oven is pretty grimy so got a box of magic eraser and cleaned thoroughly with that then cleaned that residue with windex. i do plan to magic eraser everything though, it works great on grimey dust, grease etc. plus its a mild abrasive.

Not sure that ME is enough to remove the grease. I personally like to use Dirtex, its a powder that works, plus doesn't leave any residue that would cause adhesion probs with the primer.

You will really need to rinse that Windex, it will leave a film the paint will not stick too and as Brush said, the magic eraser is a great tool but probably not enough for removing kitchen grease, Dirtex is the way to go.

If you're using a full latex system, I use a bleeding type pen/marker and write the door number on the spot that is covered by the hinge or someplace that won't be seen. Good point BJ, an extemely important point.
If they seem to be set with adjustment screws I'll also put a marker line where the screw sets to get a rough start when reinstalling, that's if you can't get the doors off without messing with the setting. All cabinet systems are different, just be sure to be mindful of how to put it all back together properly or you'll have a real aggravating puzzle to solve.

Dirtex it is then. I didn't think about Windex leaving a residue but I can certainly believe it. Yes, I can imagine not labeling everything would leave a nightmare puzzle esp. since my cabinets are probably 40 yrs. old and have settled a certain way it would be important to put it all back just how it was. Out of curiosity- what would happen if you did mix up the hardware? Would the door not close and align properly?
