Updating formica cabinets
The one I use comes from X-I-M, a company that manufactures bonding primers; they have several solvent-based products suitable for your application.I find that the spray-applied primer actually holds better than the brush-on version.Allow two or three days for the primer to cure before sanding it lightly with 220-grit paper.Then you can apply either a latex or oil-based paint; I prefer oil in kitchens because it gives a smoother finish and is easier to clean.Paint, concrete, and wood are all readily available choices for those willing to try their hand at something new.I hope this series has given you the resources, courage, and inspiration needed to implement some improvements to your kitchen in the near future!And Stillwater Story shares how to achieve a rich, stained finish to your butcher block counters.
Q: Is there any way to paint over dark-brown plastic-laminate kitchen cabinets?
I can remember second guessing myself after we put in our offer for the house knowing that the ugly cabinets were apart of the deal! I really hoped to add some type of open shelving to this empty wall.
The previous curtains were my first attempt at sewing and it showed.
I even found a trio at the thrift store for a great price!
But once my husband helped me hang them on the wall, the shelves made the room look cluttered. All the ceramic pitchers I've been collecting over the last few years to display on said shelves are now being stored in the cabinets. *A huge thank-you to Beth @ Home Stories A2Z, Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Stephanie Lynn @ Under the Table and Dreaming, Home Dzine and Kristi @ Addicted to Decorating for featuring my kitchen on their blogs!
