Your natural wood cabinets looking a little old and tired lately? Try painting them! For the cost of a can of paint and primer, you can give your cabinets a fresh new appearance.
Using a color that is anything but neutral can give your kitchen a customized look but for resale value, neutral is the safest bet. White and black are always classic but if you want the cabinets to still appear to be wood, I love Behr’s Paint and Primer in One in the Espresso brown tint. I’ve also noticed a trend toward grays or sage greens, but those get a little more personalized. Some like the eggshell finish, I like the satin. Choose the sheen you like the best for your own project.
Ready to do it? Here are 5 easy steps to give your kitchen cabinets a quick makeover:
Step 1) Remove doors and drawer fronts. Remove any door hardware. A quick tip for hardware is to secure them with masking tape to the inside of the cabinet or drawer with masking tape so they won’t get lost or mixed up.
