Been in the new Pennsylvania house for 6 days. I can’t stand all the wood on wood tones so I’m tackling the island to break it up.
The first step is to clean and degrease the surface.
I like TSP on a rag- you can find it at any hardware store.
Remove any outlets and hardware. Then tape off along the floor and underside of the countertop.
I used Kilz for my primer.
I removed the drawers, doors and hardware. Use a sheer coat of primer.
For the island I used Valspar Cabinet and Furniture paint from Lowe’s. It goes on thin so you have to keep watching for drips. The bonus is that it doesn’t show brush marks and a brush really works best.
It ended up taking one coat of primer and 3 coats of paint. When I paint the rest of the kitchen cabinets I’m going to prime them 2 or even 3 times first!
Can’t wait to finish the WHOLE kitchen. It will be so much brighter.
If you are thinking about painting cabinets the island is a great place to start❤️
Happy painting~ Kristen
