Frequently Asked Questions:

Can you paint over the old cabinet paint?

Painting over painted cabinets requires good prep work. Before you begin, the surfaces of the cabinets need to be roughed up. This will help the paint to adhere to the surface of the cabinets. Use a sanding block or sponge and go over every surface, corner and groove of the cabinet.

Why Do You Want To “Rough Up” the Wood?

Roughing up the wood, with a sanding block or anything gritty, is so important for many reasons:

  • It removes any finish that may be on your wood to begin with to give it a clean base to start
  • It helps removes any scratches or tiny dents to give a more even surface
  • Most importantly, it allows the new paint to adhere easily.
