What is the best way to go about painting oak cabinets?


Answer by  Mazer (173)

Whether the oak is finished or unfinished, start by lightly sanding the wood and coating it with an all-purpose primer. Then either spray or brush on two coats of a high quality enamel paint, lightly sanding between coats. Alkyd-based paints give the smoothest results with the fewest brush strokes showing.

They should be sanded using a 150 grit sanding block and then wiped down witha tack cloth to remove the dust. Prime them with a highly adhesive primer and paint with a premium product in a gloss or semi-gloss finish.

Remove doors & paint them in garage. Roughly sand all surfaces to remove gouges and so primer will stick. Remove all sanded dust. Prime with a stain blocker primer, using a small foam roller & a small brush as needed. Then use one or two coats of enamel paint.

Sand them with a medium to coarse grit sandpaper and then apply a high-bond primer such as Gripper or UniPrime. Paint them with a high-gloss paint using an airless sprayer.

This is one question I hate to answer. I am not for painting any wood. Once it's painted you can't go back without stripping the wood. Maybe the wood need a cleaning, sanding and a little poly to make them look better.
