Four coats of paint, one protective top coat and ten days later…my newly repainted kitchen cabinet box. This is going to be a long project.
The protective top coat is the trickiest part because you have to keep dust from settling on the newly painted and very sticky surface. It wasn’t too difficult doing the box in the house (as I mentioned, my cabinets are site built, and so cannot be taken down), but painting the doors out in the garage has been painful. I did dutifully clean the garage before this project began, but a few weeks of Glop and the girls trekking the car, ride-ons and bikes in and out has totally negated my efforts. It’s just not possible to stop the flow of traffic in and out of the garage altogether. We will need to find a new location for painting the top coat on the doors. Or live with lots of little dirt and fiber particles adorning our cabinets. Yuck.
