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.
When we think of grey, a standard color may come to mind. However, your base grey color choice is worth thinking about. This is because there is no single grey color in which one size fits all.Instead, grey is influenced by a range of different undertones, from red to green to blue. Warm greys such as taupe or putty will make your kitchen appear warm and cozy, whereas a grey with a blue undertone will have an industrial feel.
Application Tips.Do you have flat cabinet doors, or do they feature inset panels and raised edges? If you have flat doors on your kitchen cabinets, you can make quick work of paint application by using a paint roller with ¼ nap (for the most even application and smooth finish). Paneled kitchen cabinets require a little more work—use a paint brush to evenly coat angled surfaces and inset areas. Remember to choose a synthetic bristle brush if you are using latex paint, since the water-based formula will swell the bristles of a natural paint brush.
You need accessories like home wares, cloths and furniture to look at for your kitchen in order to develop the cottage feel. Examples of the use of white, torn, butchered surfaces, strewn vintage towels and dishcloths, an antique kitchen clock and plates on open racks over windows and doors. Store pots, glazed ironware and glass jars might be other accessories. A pitcher of fresh-cut flowers could also be placed to produce more cottage charm.
