Tips for Painting Your New Doors

Ordering pre-primed doors makes painting your custom cabinet doors so much easier, but there are a few tips you should keep in mind. As you prepare to jump into the painting process, make sure you do the following.

Sand Your Doors

Before you start painting your new cabinet doors, be prepared to spot sand the primer in grooves if needed for the best results. Sanding is crucial to guarantee that the paint will correctly bond with the primer.

Ensure an Even Coat

As you get ready to paint the doors, ensure a smooth and even coat. Natural grain raise is a common part of the priming process as the natural grain of the wood lifts up. If you notice any parts of the wood that are uneven with the rest, you should do another pass with sandpaper.

Once you start painting, take your time and apply the paint evenly across the surface of the door. If you notice any brush marks, pass over the area again with a little more paint to smooth it out before it dries.

Test Your Product

Before going all-in with your paint, make sure it will work with the door. Try applying a small amount of paint to a small portion of the door. If the paint does not seem to adhere to the primer correctly or smoothly, then you should do another light pass over the doors with the sandpaper.
