GrandmasHouseDIY on Dec 26, 2017Hi there, I would give them a good overall sanding and then two coats of a primer and then two coats of a paint color of your choice. Because it is in a bathroom you will want to seal them as well and two coats of a poly acrylic will work then.Helpful Reply
William on Dec 26, 2017Make sure they are clean and dry. Lightly sand the doors and cabinets to remove any gloss and roughen the surface for paint with 120- to 220-grit sandpaper. Use a tack cloth or damp rag to remove dust after sanding. Prime with a stain blocking primer like Zinsser 123, KILZ,or BIN and have it tinted to the color of the top coat. This will prevent dark or stained surfaces from showing through the top coat. Acrylic, or water-base, paints are low-fume and clean up easily with water. Alkyd, or oil-base, paints require good ventilation because the paint contains solvents that can irritate your lungs and make you feel sick. Alkyd options require mineral spirits for cleanup, but they provide a hard, durable paint finish. Seal with at least three coats with a water based polyurethane. Use a small foam roller and foam brush for a smooth finish.Helpful Reply
Suellen Hintz on Dec 26, 2017Do thorough prep and use primer. Then use Floetrol in your oil paint.Helpful Reply
