I want to paint our bathroom sink cabinets from the bland natural wood color that they are currently stained, to black or white. The cabinet doors are wood, but the sides of the cabinet base look to be particle board or some kind of shiny fake wood. How do you suggest prepping them for painting? Will it even work on fake wood?
Also, I don't want a semi-gloss paint because its too shiny. Would satin finish look and function appropriately in a bathroom?
I would like to welcome to the community tashamu2004 – thanks for stopping by.
Wow, what a way to kick off the new year with a DIY. This is a good resolution…start in the bathroom and work your way out to the rest of the house.
There are a couple of ways to come at this. First, there is a new product that we have recently added that helps transform “ugly” cabinets into brand new looking. It’s called Cabinet Transformations made by Rust-Oleum.
I have personally used this product and was very impressed with the results. The only thing is that I believe the final coat applied dries to a semi-gloss finish. Check out this link to watch the video on how easy it is to do.http://cabinets.rustoleumtransformations.com/
The other solution is the most traditional way: Prep-prime-paint. Here are the steps.
Please post some before and after pics so we all can all follow the progress. I hope this helped, and please let me know if I can further assist you along the way.
Several of our product experts, ChristineClaret, GoToGregg, and HDWetPaint teamed-up to show our Community how to apply this exceptional new product from Rustoleum.
