February 9, 2010

Newly painted kitchen cabinets.How do I refinish kitchen cabinet doors? I want to paint some old cabinets and replace the center with frosted glass. It looks like there is a gloss finish on the cabinets and they are old. I don't want to hurt the wood.

Don't worry too much about the wood, we did the same at our house, hit it with a sander and then hand sanded the detail (a bit ornate) then primed and painted, was a lengthy process but thoroughly worth it!

Go to http://www.thisoldhouse.com and enter 'paint kitchen cabinets' in the search box. I used their instructions on my cabinets and they turned out beautiful. It took me 2 weeks to complete the project. I painted my cabinets white and changed the hardware. I also left off two cabinet doors and glued red & white check fabric to the back.

Completely refinishing them would be a lot of work---you would have to take the old finish off first. I would take the doors off and pick a color of paint you like and paint them and then paint the actual cabinet part in either a matching color or a contrasting one.
