know you get what you pay forlets be honest you buy a $20 $10 pane you know that's that's the type of resultsyou're going to achieve so the product that we'll be using today i'm going toleave a link in the description so the the primer that we're going to be using is aurethane acrylic called stix and the top code is going to be benjaminmore advanced alkyd between oil-based primer and the sticksthose are really my top to go to of primers and the benjamin moore advancedthis you know it's it's so easy to work with its self leveling it's easy to sandand the finish that you get is very it's


a solid it's like a almost like a like a shell is it really are even if you if you're not an experienced painand you know that the stuff kind of works with you you know is it's veryforgiving so this is going to make this project rip really easy for anybodypretty much. so with kitchen cabinets usually they tend to be very dirty andvery greasy on especially the ones that are located directly over your stove andoven tend to have a high buildup of grease and oils so what you want to dois you want to make sure that you clean these thoroughly for you before you doanything so what i like to do is spray this heavy duty degreaser


it's a citrus degreaser but yet what you dowhich we do is you spray down your surfaces your doors is drawers you framepretty much everything that you're painting. soak it with the degreaser . what you are trying to do you're trying to get rid of the oil andgrease, anything that the paint won't adhere once you spray on your degreaser let that sit for a couple of minutes then wipe it off with a clean rag whati'll suggest i would let it sit for like five minutes at least five minutes i'malready did it with this one so for demonstration purposes you know i didn't let this one sit too long but anyways what you want to go around you want toyou know see if there's anything that


you need to knock off any dirt that youmissed what i do i take my 5 in 1 you can take pretty much anything acredit card work sometimes knock off any dirt and debris go ahead and wipe itagain and this goes for pretty much for everypart that you're painting you know whether it's you drawer , your frameeverything that that's being painting you want to make sure you prepit correctly you want to degrease it make sure you get all the debris offbefore you go ahead and start sanding and you start sanding it you want to usea 150 grit and lightly scuff up the surface what you're trying to do is you'retrying to take the gloss you try to de


loss it and you're trying to give your primer and your paint something to grab onto so what i like doing and thisimportant to if you're doing this if you you know if you got somebody helping youyou want to make sure you guys are on the same page as far as sanding you wantto go pretty much always go with the grain when you're standing and you knowthe same pattern that you're doing this the same way you're standing you wantyour partner to send the same way just so later on you know there's no youdon't see any difference once you put the paint on you know and one personwent against the grain dealing with the grain you know you're going to havetexture difference to than you finish so


what else to just either you know youdesignate one person to sanding or you know you you guys talk it out before youfor you sin and make a plan on how you gonna tack it so yeah take your 150grit and just like you scuff up the surface you don't even have to put much pressure same thing in here. what i'm using is a sanding sponge to wrap my paper around. make sure you get your corners and that's it. make sure you know youhit every spot look at it in the light and if you see any glossy spots you knowyou it goes again then you take your rag and wipe off any dust you want to getrid of heavy dust especially in the


corners because if you start painting thisand they're still just dust or debris in the corners or anywhere on the surfaceit's going to show in your finish alright just looking pretty good so whatyou will do you know you do both sides and you do that with every every faceplate of your drawer every go work and put your frame you you would go about the same waythen our next step is to prime this alright i let us sit up for about eighthours and ended up doing something else what is looking pretty good so what youwant to do is first thing you want to do you want to do a fingernail scratch testyou want to see this is this is solid and as you can see the theprimarily adhere to the to the surface


so we're good to gonext thing you want to do is you want to take some 220 grit sanding paper and seeif you have any imperfection it's just very lightly wipe over those up and overthose five just to knock off any any debris anything that contaminated thesurface this is pretty good and see anything so we're good to go here whati'm going to do now is i'm going to wipe it off with a rag and get ready to applythe topcoat another thing i want to mention real quick whenever you touchingthe surface make sure your hands are clean make sure you don't have anygrease or you know you naturally have oil isn't on your fingers so you want tomake sure you need to wash away with a


good soap on like a distant ocean soapor some duramax and clean your hands are really good because if you touch thesurface and you have oil grease on it when you go to paint over it you knowyou can have spots where the tea won't adhere to the surface and you know youwant that's what you're trying to do it's another resented everything andlooks good and everything's smooth we are ready to apply our topcoat so you'redoing the same thing like you did with your primer i'm going to take our tankhit the edges make sure you don't put too much shot up too much paint in yourcorners because it'll build up then we'll take our 4 inch 3/8 inch naproller and apply our pain


tape thing your last rope you alwayswant to go in the same direction make sure there's nothing running ordripping off our side and that's it so we're going to do nowwe're going to let this dry there's a suggested dry time of 16 hours inbetween coats so we let this sit overnight come back see if we have tostand anything before we apply our second coat and then do the same thingwe're going to do that with everything with all the other doors the drawers andthe frame and then we'll see what we have at we're going to do that witheverything we're going to live with the doors the drawers and the frame and thenwe'll see what we have all right so


everything has a first coating on theframe the drawers or the doors now what i'm going to do is i'm going to takethem 400 grit sandpaper send out any imperfections if i have any runs whati'm going to do is i'm going to take a little bit of water just lightly wetsand it and then go ahead apply the second coat and then we should be goodto go all right so just a quick recap of whatwe did is we degrease we d gloss b prime and we paint it that's all it is it'sthat simple arm and like i said the prep is about 90percent of your job 90% is your prep and 10% is your product so you want to makesure you prep the right you get the
