Wood Cabinets: Paint adheres best over a scuffed surface, making true wood cabinets a great candidate for painting. Sand the surface to prep it for paint and the result is a better bond and smoother finish. This is especially important if your wood cabinets are already stained or have a glossy finish - you will need to get through this finish layer first, either with sandpaper.
Tools and Supplies You Will Need:Interior acrylic-latex paint,Primer,2 1/2-inch paintbrush,Roller frame and roller cover,Paint tray and liner,Canvas drop cloth,Masking film,Painters tape,TSP-3 sodium phosphate,Random orbital sander and sandpaper of varying grits,Dust mask or respirator,Tack cloth,Shop vacuum,Soft, clean cotton rags
Now that you have chosen your new cabinets, it is time to pick a color for your countertops. If you have chosen a kitchen with grey cabinets, you will have a range of different counters to choose from.Grey cabinets go with attractive tiles in bright colors such as aqua or red. You could also install a marble or granite counter top, which will create an attractive, monochromatic look to your kitchen, with the grey in your cabinets repeated in the veins or patterns in the stone.Alternatively, if you are looking for an industrial finish, steel or zinc countertops are a great choice.
To maintain quality and beauty, wood needs to be polished with high-quality alternatives occasionally. Choose not toxic kinds so you can keep your food secure even when it falls into the cabinet.
