Do not sand too much, since the veneer is just a thin layer hiding what is beneath. You are just looking to make the surface rough enough to give the primer and paint something to adhere to.MDF: Kitchen cabinets made from MDF are great candidates for painting, as long as you know how to properly prep them. You have two priorities when prepping MDF cabinets for painting: seal the edge and use an oil-based primer.The edge of MDF is more porous, and if it does not already have a finished surface, then you will want to use some drywall compound to seal it and keep moisture from swelling the material during the painting process.
If your wood cabinets are bare, natural wood, they may need little to no sanding. However, know that they will absorb a lot of paint - especially if you go with water-based latex paint. A primer will assist in making sure the coverage is even and through.
Painting the kitchen will help bring a much-needed sparkle back to it. In some ways, painting the kitchen is an easier project than painting bedrooms or living rooms because the amount of wall space tends to be limited. Most of a kitchen is wall space is dominated by base cabinets, wall cabinets, and backsplashes. On the downside, the small area that remains to be painted usually needs extensive cleaning and prep work. For an unfurnished kitchen, use either a roller or a paint sprayer for the walls. For window and door trim, always use a brush. For a furnished kitchen, use a roller on the large expanses of wall and a brush for the little strips, such as between the backsplash and the cabinets.
A range of kitchens can be used for a cottage style, with a wooden decorative hood, as well as a large ceramic pot or an apron on the front of a farm.
The cottage style kitchen furnishings can include pine or maple furniture. The detail of the furniture is an significant part of the cottage style. The furniture can also be painted white or lacquered, with characteristics such as curved legs on the foundation and ancient fashioned moldings around the table cabinets. Or a big job desk, which can also be a family dining area. Pieces may include a kitchen table in farmhouse style, with beech chairs in style.
