Tools You Will Need:

- Sand Existing Finish: Put on dust mask, place drop cloth on floor and use electric sander to remove existing finish from cabinet. Wipe cabinet with damp cloth.
- Pre-drill Holes for Hardware: Using tape measure decide where to place hardware and mark with pencil then drill selected front door holes with drill.
- Spray Primer: Add an even coat of primer to the front door of cabinet by using paint sprayer and a quart of tinted primer.
- Spray on Color: Load paint sprayer with semi-gloss paint and cover exterior and interior cabinet, making sure that coverage is even by moving paint sprayer from left to right slowly and carefully. Wait about three hours for first coat to dry then apply second coat of paint.
- Attach Hardware: After paint is dry, using screwdriver and wrench add new hardware into pre-drilled holes.
