I have some kitchen cabinets in my new home that are original. (1978) We
decided to paint these cabinets white and I did a test run on one of the
doors today just to see how it would work. I sanded it down with my trusty
black and decker orbital, wiped it down with a tack rag, then painted.
Now that we decided this refinish would look good, (rather than buying new),
should I use stripper to remove the old varnish, or is it okay to just sand
these bad boys down to bare, then prime, then paint?
Thanks for your thoughts.
Oh, by the way...I have no idea what type of wood these are. They seem
fairly run of the mill, in fact, the middle of the doors seem like "fake
wood paneling," however the majority of the door is a light wood. AND, I am
going to have to do the frame attached b/c I cannot find any type of screws
that hold the cabinets to the wall.
