Lazy Girl's Guide to Painting Cabinets

1 Hour
Easy

I wanted to give my master bathroom vanity a makeover, but I was feeling rather lazy at the time. I didn't want to spend days sanding, priming, and painting. I came up with "lazy girl's plan" to completely transform my vanity with only about an hour of work time.
My guide to completely repainting your cabinets without tons of sanding and priming.
First remove all the doors and hardware. Quickly run a sanding block over all of the surfaces, then clean with a TSP substitute.
Paint your cabinets using a high quality paint. I like to use a combination of a foam roller and high quality brush to get the best finish.
After letting the doors dry completely for 24 hours I reattached them and all of the hardware.
What a difference an hour and left over paint can make!

    Your bathroom cabinets look great I decided to try painting my master bath using two coats of primer first then two coats of chalk paint Many areas on doors are chipping , not holding paint I sanded those areas after doors dried but haven’t added the clear wax sealer Any suggestions would be wonderful This project has been a work in progress for three days now 😟
