Cabinet refacing has become commonplace and popular among many homeowners, and do it yourself is something that will provide a special experience for homeowners. When we intend to do a DIY kitchen cabinet refacing, then there are some things we must do and the following is a guide that will help us successfully do cabinet refacing. The first is that we can place an order on the supplier for kitchen cabinet doors and kitchen cabinets drawers. Supplier or trust carpenter will make kitchen cabinets with exact measurements so that we can get the doors and drawers are appropriate and suitable. Suppliers will also ask the type of wood that we want to use to the type of finish that we want to apply. Make sure we know the need to consider the look we want and give all the information on the supplier.
The second is we have to move all the existing items in the kitchen cabinets ranging from plates, bowls, eating utensils, a variety of seasoning, to cookware (skillet, pot, spatula, and others). Anyway, do not forget also to remove all existing shelves in kitchen cabinets so that we will find an empty space in the kitchen cabinets. The third is we have to remove all doors and drawers in kitchen cabinets and put it in a safe place for a while. Do not forget also to take off all the hardware such as knobs to handles. The fourth is we can throw all doors or drawers or hardware that is no longer our use of the old kitchen cabinets.
The fifth is to do a light sanding all the surfaces of kitchen cabinets with fine-grit sandpaper. Anyway, sandpaper surface we apply the veneer will be, but if we intend to apply a veneer to all surfaces, then sandpaper it. The sixth is the sandpaper to clean the rest of the surface with a clean cloth and make sure that all surfaces are completely clean. The seventh is to apply coating on any surface that has been sanded using wood coatings for the cabinet. Remember that doing the coating should be applied lightly and because wood coatings is quite expensive, so make sure we do not make mistakes. The eighth is to install back all the doors, drawers, and hardware on the kitchen cabinets a new one, and voila we have done the DIY kitchen cabinet refacing with success.
