Kitchen Cabinets – Refinishing Yourself VS The Pros

Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets Yourself

This project is not as daunting as a complete kitchen remodel. Yet it will still be a serious undertaking. Be prepared to devote a couple weeks, a ton of elbow grease and endless brainpower. There’s not much carpentry involved, but you will have to plan wisely and measure accurately to get the cabinet doors just right. The painting is a matter of persistence and perseverance. You will spend a lot of time cleaning and sanding before you can even think about painting.
