Updating pine kitchen cabinets

And although you’ve all seen our newly renovated kitchen, we actually painted our previous 50-year-old knotty pine cabinets right after we moved in (to tide us over until we had the funds to replace them altogether). Bring home paint swatches and select the perfect palette, and if you’re planning to replace your hardware, purchase some before you move on to the next step.

Test your stain on an inconspicuous spot before staining larger sections.Pine is a porous wood that easily accepts a wide range of stains.You can modernize cabinets by stripping old paint or varnish, sanding and then staining the wood in a color of your choice.This can be accomplished with the aid of a feather duster, mini vac or a lightly dampened washcloth or paper towel.After purging every last trace of dust from your cabinets, place painter's tape along the cabinets' edges to prevent primer and/or paint from leaking into the surrounding areas.
