The Ultimate Guide To Painting Cabinets (Tutorials)

More than 100 different tutorials on how to paint your cabinets.  Sorted by paint type, sanding, priming, and more!  The BEST collection of painting tutorials available today.
Recently my post about how I painted my kitchen cabinets broke the 2 million pageview mark.  And I was reminded that back when I was figuring out the optimal technique for painting my cabinets, that I did research,  A LOT OF RESEARCH,  into how other professionals, bloggers and homeowners painted their cabinets.  It was google search after google search, asking my friends, turning to social media…  I was trying to get as much information as I could and it was a lot of work.  What I really needed at the time was a place to go where all that information was gathered in ONE spot.  With lists of options and links to actual tutorials.  A cheat sheet to cabinet painting.



So know you know what I did?  I CREATED THAT LIST.   I talked to all my blogging friends about how they paint cabinets, I asked for tutorials and searched out links. I found as much information and I could** and organized it to make it easy to find.   So now, if you are ever contemplating painting your cabinets, you have a one-stop-shop for advice.
