I love wood, but even I have to admit that there is such a thing as too much wood in a house. That’s where paint can help. Prepare those old, brown varnished cabinets properly and a new coat of paint will make them look amazing for a long time. In fact, painting your kitchen or bathroom cabinets might be the most effective, inexpensive and rapid way to transform a major part of your home.
I’ve achieved the best results with a low-sheen or flat paint, since these hide defects much better than glossier sheens. Also, a small roller is th best tool for applying paint to cabinets. You’ll still need a brush to get into the nooks and crannies around door panels and such, but do these areas first with a brush. Follow up with a roller everywhere you can reach, and you’ll have a beautiful result.
