Do I need to strip kitchen cabinets before painting them?
Janet Pizaro on Apr 04, 2018They will ,look better if you remove the paint.Use Citristrip a safe non-toxic paint removerHelpful Reply
Landsharkinnc on Apr 04, 2018in this case, I would recommend it; CITRISTRIP is a low odor gel that is very easy to use and does a great job; remove doors, and all hardware and follow directions for subsequent paint application -Helpful Reply
Johnavallance82 on Apr 04, 2018Possibly used chalk or emulsion type paint and did not seal them, so unless you don't mind the Shabby Chic look. then yes you have to remove old paint.Helpful Reply
Joanne lueke on Apr 04, 2018Without seeing a picture it's hard to tell, but your cabinets could be a laminate. Either way they were not properly prepared to paint. I would remove the paint and then lightly sand, wipe clean. then prime before painting. Then seal with polycrylic. Best of luck.Helpful Reply
Missy Burch on Apr 04, 2018I would have to agree, lightly sand or do a full strip. I would try sanding first- stripping it is so much more mess & time, even using Citristrip.Helpful Reply
