I did make one big oops and accidentally marked and installed a knob on the wrong side of a cabinet.
The color I picked out was called Revere Pewter with a satin finish.
Since all my appliances are white, I didn’t want to go with white cabinets too.
We did two coats of primer (letting them dry adequately in between) and then two coats of paint. This was recommended by a trusted contractor as well as many other people who have painted cabinets.
This line of paint is made to be durable but is water based so it’s a lot easier to work with.
What’s a bit of a pain with painting cabinets is you have to wait for one side to dry before you flip it and paint the other side. This saved quite a bit of money but you run the risk of not seeing them before you purchase them.
I’m not super picky so the savings was worth the risk for me.
Before I jump in on how exactly we did it, I want to share a few thoughts on the kitchen cabinet painting process It is A LOT of work. Lastly, I want to make sure to communicate that I am NOT an expert.
I am simply sharing about the process we went through and the method we used.
Despite a few imperfections here and there (mostly likely I am the only one who notices) I LOVE how they turned out.
