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.
For one thing, while it goes on smoothly, oil-based paint takes a long time to dry in between coats—up to 16 hours. Without good circulation (such as inside of a cabinet), waiting for the paint to dry can really become an issue. Keeping your cabinets emptied for days as you let the paint dry between coats can be a nuisance that many people are not willing to deal with. Latex paint, however, is ready for another coat in as little as two to four hours. This means you can easily paint in a day and put your kitchen back together pronto.
Determine which areas are large enough to accommodate the roller. Pour a small amount of paint in the tray, soak the roller cover, then thoroughly roll out the excess. Roll these large spaces of wall in a W-pattern, covering sections of about 4 feet by 4 feet. Bring the roller to about an inch or two of the painter is tape.
They should be correctly ready before the cabinets are painted. A few mild sanding methods are needed if the wood finish or ancient paint is soft and glistening. The surface must be rough and easy to adhere to the new paint. Clean them with soap and water after sanding the wardrobe surface. After drying, the cabinets edge, floor, counter tops, walls and other surfaces should have painting tape to prevent the color from entering places that you do not want. The painting should be applied.
