Wood Storage Cabinet – Your wooden cabinets can start looking dirty after a while, and the finish can make them look old-fashioned. It is not necessary to go to the expense of buying new cabinets. Refinishing the finish of the cabinets can make them look like new again. It is a simple process, but it requires a little time, a lot of energy and hard work. As long as you do not mind that, the results and the money you save will be well worth it.
Place the tarps on the floor. Remove all hardware, including the handles and hinges, from your cabinets with a screwdriver. Place all hardware and screws in a safe place so they do not get lost if you are going to use them again. Seat the doors that are now removed on the tarps. Put on rubber gloves and mask, and make sure the room is well ventilated. To apply the paint or separator, follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Apply with a rag, removing all the old end of each piece before moving on to the next door or cabinet.

Sand the doors and cabinets to remove any residue or to smooth the rough edges. Clean the dust with sandpaper from the soft cloths so the doors and cabinets are free of dust. Apply the new finish or paint, following the manufacturer’s instructions with precision. Again, make sure you are wearing the mask and the room is well ventilated. Allow the new finish to dry completely, then replace the doors and hardware.
