1) Remove all the doors and any hardware such as handles and hinges. Number the doors so they go back up in the right order/position.

2) Thoroughly clean all woodwork with a good cleaner degreaser to remove all grease and oils that normally buildup on kitchen cabinetry over time. Sand your surfaces with a light scuff sand and prime with Fleetwood Bloxx-It. Let the primer dry and sand again using a “very fine” grit sandpaper. Wipe the primed cabinets with a damp cloth to remove any debris before applying your first coat of Fleetwood Advanced paint.

3) Apply the first coat of Fleetwood Advanced Satinwood or Fleetwood High Gloss with a 1″ or 1 1/2″ angled brush to the recessed/detailed areas of the cabinet door without getting the brush marks on the flatter and smoother areas. Next, immediately paint the remaining flat areas of the door using a 4”microfibre roller and roll over any overlapping brush marks or paint drips to smooth the surface.

4) Let your first coat of paint dry for 24-48 hours and then apply a second coat in the same manner. Again, wait 24-48 hours and once dry you can reinstall your hardware to complete your kitchen cabinet makeover.
