Now it is time to choose between grey stained cabinets and a grey paint. When you paint your cabinets your color will be solid, and you will be able to choose between a mat and a gloss finish. By staining your cabinets, you will create a translucent effect. If you are using wooden cabinets, the grain may show through, adding interesting detail.
Wood Veneer Cabinets:If your cabinets have a wood veneer—essentially a very thin layer of real hardwood over a pressed material—you will also need to sand before painting your kitchen cabinets. But before you break out the sandpaper or paint, carefully inspect the veneer for loose edges, chips, or cracks. Repair these first with wood glue before sanding the veneered surface.
Let the paint dry for about two hours. Dip the paintbrush in the paint can and manually paint the areas that the roller could not reach. Avoid drips by minimally applying the paint and by re-brushing. Areas that were painted more than a few minutes ago will likely already be filming over. So, confine your re-brushing to areas that were only recently painted.Apply Additional Coats Paint colors deepen and reach their full potential by being applied in two or even three coats. At a minimum, let the paint dry for at least a couple of hours, then re-roll and re-brush the paint one more time.
