kitchen cabinets


I want to paint my kitchen cabinets, what I have right now is a dark stain wood. Can I paint over the stain? thanks for any suggestions.

Sure, use a sealer primer and you'll be fine.

I will do that, sales person at HD said to use a fine sand paper on the wood before applying the primer for better results. Thanks for your help.

My Ideal Cabinet Repaint:

Clean with ammonia/water solution
Let dry

Sand with 180
This is to rough up the surface, not sand it off
Wipe with Tack Cloth

Prime with shellac based primer
Let dry

Sand with 180
This is a light sanding to smooth out the shellac a bit
Wipe with tack cloth

Paint first coat, with a proper brush, quality oil-based, high gloss enamel
Let dry over night

Sand with 220
Wipe with tack cloth

Second coat quality oil based high gloss enamel, also with a brush

Enjoy beautiful cabinets

*Substitute quality oil-based primer and quality waterborne enamel as needed/preferred

Also, I'd recommend going to a paint store rather than a paint dept.
You'll get much better product that will help your project go much quicker and look much better

i started to do my cabinets today. the shellac primer (i used BIN) was awkward to work with. kind of runny. and it dried almost TOO fast. everything looks blotchy, but i'm assuming once i put on the real paint it will look better. our kitchen looks like an institution now, since EVERYTHING is white now hahaha

Yes, it is
Yes, it is
Yes, it does
Yes, it does
Yes, it will
Yes, it will

It's kind of stinky too
I hope you had some windows open

It's really the best "surefire" way though (the BIN I mean)
The oil primer will work for a lot of them
But the BIN always works
