Updating oak cabinets
If painting cabinets white and updating countertops and a new backsplash aren’t in the budget or your husband refuses to paint perfectly good oak cabinets, you’re not alone.Behind many computer screens are hopes and dreams, even my own, but it’s not always a reality.I had to go along and manually sand the grooves that the palm-sander couldn’t reach too. Since it was mid-winter, we had to do the sanding in the garage rather than outside.I made the mistake of leaving my car in the garage during the sanding too. After sanding and sanding some more in order to remove the gloss and give the primer and paint something to grip onto, we wiped the cabinets down really well and put on the first coat of primer.
Despite what you see on Pinterest, you can do a kitchen makeover without painting your orange oak cabinets.
The primer we used was recommended by the paint store and was called Fresh Start.
