Kitchen cabinet painting

My cabinets have been previously painted white. Do I need to prime again or just sand for tooth?

  • If you are going to use regular paint, yes, first send them and prime. If you are using a chalk paint, you don`t need to use anything or sand.

    Depends on whether they have a sealant if some type I would think! A light sanding, wiping off the dust & ready for paint!

    Do not use chalk paint on your kitchen cabinets. It does not hold up well, and why waste all your time and effort in something that you will have to re-do in a year or less.

    Since yours are already white, I would clean really well, then very lightly sand, Use a good gripping primer, then paint. They will come out better if you use a paint sprayer, rather than a roller.

    It depends what kind of paint you use. If you use chalk paint, you could just give a light sand and reapply.

    I am planning on painting mine again soon, I plan on just a light sanding and repainting.

  • No, but you need to clean and send them before painting.
