changing the look of my living room cabinet

My cabinet is very light wood. How do I make it shiny black to match my shiny bookcases?

Welcome to our community Kathiemac!

 

Thank you for your question!

 

Here is what I would recommend for your cabinet.

 

First, lightly sand the cabinets with medium grit sandpaper. The point of this is just to lightly scuff the surface.

 

Second, prime the surface with an oil- based primer. Apply it with a 1/4" nap roller. To clean the roller, use mineral spirits.  

Lastly, once the primer has dried, paint it with a high gloss black paint. Again, I would recommend using a 1/4" nap roller to apply it.

 

If you have any more questions, please let us know!

 

Christine :)
