How to Update a Kitchen with Paint | Ask This Old House



we do have a new solution I mean something we've never tried before but the idea is is that it's a paint that supposedly sticks to anything and that means that we can forego both the sanding and the D glossing process and the paint is actually the primer the color and the finish all in one so we might be able to paint these cabinets and get in and out with just two coats yep for trying that that sounds great all right so it starts with cleaning them so I think we should take all the hardware off the doors and drawers out and then clean them up all right sounds good so we want to make sure that we clean all the face frames all the doors and drawers and the manufacturer recommends that we use just a off-the-shelf biodegradable cleaner spray it on wipe it off all right everything is cleaned up so we're ready for the paint and there it is now you asked for gray and this company calls the grey pebble you okay with that color I love it all right now run your fingers over that you feel that little bit of texture mm-hmm well that's what we're gonna end up with you okay with that very cool I love it all right so this is the paint for us now the story with the paint is that was originally formulated to paint lines down an asphalt and you can imagine how much traffic that gets so this should stick to anything including our kitchen cabinets now normally we'd be doing this with a brush I mean that would help us because we'd have styles and rails and we'd have a panel in the middle but in this case we can use a roller we got a couple things working for us first of all it's one big flat panel that's great in second the paint has a self-leveling characteristic that should help it lay flat when we're done with the rollers ready yeah I'm ready get some gloves on get the work all right there you go all right Hannah Doerr fronts drawer fronts are all done so we're going to turn our attention to the face frame so the same process for you go over with the roller I'm going to use the brush because that's all that's going to fit in here up by the crown okay all right sounds good so the doors and drawers are all set up we gave them at least two hours to dry you can see that we've got decent coverage but they're going to need a second coat so let's roll that on okay so everything is dried overnight we've got all the frames done now I love the fact that we went all the way and painted the inside because they were kind of dirty so that freshens it up two coats on everything doors drawers frames even three coats on a couple doors what do you think so far I love it do ya it looks so good it is a big improvement all right so you said that you didn't like the yellow color of the tile and since this paint will stick to this we can cover this up if you want yeah I think that would be a great idea can we do wipeout sure absolutely same process we'll just clean it tape it off and then we'll roll on the white all right sounds good some equipment you all right it's been two hours and the first coat is dry so let's put on the second coat all right you now is the time to update the hardware in this case since you like what you have all you have to do is clean it spray-paint it we've got a brand new look so it took three coats in some places and you've got a little bit of texture but overall what do you think it's great I love it yeah awesome all right well just yesterday you had the natural wood look on the cabinet's yellow backsplash now you've got the crisp gray the white backsplash this kitchens deftly going to last you five more years oh yeah thank you so much
