How To Paint Bathroom Cabinets

How to paint your bathroom cabinets to give them a new look.
Here are what the cabinets looked like before. To start, I removed all the drawers and doors from the bathroom cabinet. Next I protected the floors with a drop cloth and masked off the surrounding areas with painter's tape to help prevent paint from going anywhere it shouldn't be.
The prep work for getting your cabinets ready is rather simple. Use a deglosser and rub it over the cabinets with a sponge to remove dust and dirt. Next wipe down the cabinet with a damp cloth to remove the deglosser and then dry the cabinet with a dry cloth.
To paint the cabinets use a paint brush and paint in the direction of the wood grain, starting with the outer edge of the doors.
After the edge is painted paint the remaining areas on the top side of the cabinet. Every door will need 2 coats of paint on both sides. Once all the bathroom cabinet has gotten two coats of paint and fully dried, you can then paint the protective top coat on which is included in the Rust-oleum Cabinet Transformations Kit again with a brush.
For your reference, here is what the bathroom used to look like.
Here is what the cabinet now looks like with the doors and drawers reinstalled along with some new handles.
