In getting ready to make your dining room look better, you can have a look around the space and think about what hasn’t been updated recently — and if your cabinets look worn or out of date, it’s well worth painting them rather than trying to replace them.
It’s worth knowing that in order to do a better job in painting your dining room cabinet, the best thing that you can do is to properly prepare for the painting project — for when you’ve done this, you will have painted cabinets at a better price and in an improved timeframe.
Let’s have a look at some tips for preparing to paint your dining room cabinet
One of the first things that you’re going to want to do when you’re looking to paint your dining room cabinet is to measure them well.
One of the ways this will help is how you are going to be able to calculate the amount of paint and primer that will be necessary for the painting project — knowledge of which will help you to buy enough of each without buying either too much or too little.
Another important reason you want to measure the cabinets is so that you can figure out how much time it is going to take to paint, and make a schedule for yourself so that you aren’t wasting any time.
It’s entirely possible that when you are painting your cabinet, you are going to stick with the same color that was already there — this may mean that you were happy with the color or colors but it was just starting to look a bit worn as it were.
However, if the cabinet not only looks worn but had a color or colors that no longer suit your needs or wants, you are going to need to think about what you will want to use for changing up the look of the cabinets.
The best thing that you can do is to have a good look around and based on what you see, choose a color or colors that are going to coordinate well.
An important thing for you to do as you are getting ready to paint your cabinet is to remove the hardware prior to starting the painting.
There are a few reasons you’re going to want to do this, one of which is that you may decide that you actually want to change up the hardware on the cabinet, and what better way to change it up than to have the hardware off first?
Moreover, even if you do decide you want to stay with the same hardware, it will be a lot easier for you to paint your cabinet if you don’t have the hardware on there — said hardware will just get in the way as you try to paint and you will paint that much slower as you try to avoid painting it.
Lastly, remember that you need to protect the floor near where you are painting your cabinet — during the process of painting your cabinet, the paint will almost inevitably drip down, and if you have nothing protecting the floor it will end up there and that will just mean a lengthy cleanup process.
The better thing is to put down a tarp or a drop cloth that will catch the paint, and which will be a lot easier to put down on the floor before you paint than trying to paint without drips.
