How To Turn White Laminate Kitchen Cabinet With Black Paint

Kitchen cabinet remodelling project can be expensive, regarding the purpose of a freshly new look. refacing it with painting is one of less expensive solutions to give your kitchen a new look. It can take several days to weeks. With the right preparation, you can paint laminate. Indeed, you just cannot use any type of ordinary household paint. It needs to be specifically formulated in order to adhere to it.

Laminate paint is available in a large range of colours but you can tint it to virtually any colour that you desire. Painting the cabinets and doors is easy, but takes a while due to the time taken for the paint to dry between coats. I would allow one weekend to paint a medium size kitchen. In this project, we use satin finish to turn the white laminate cabinet into black laminate paint. The recommended product in this remodelling project is White Knight product. Follow these instructions to get the best result.

  • First, you will need to calculate the amount of paint you will need. You can calculate this by multiplying the length of your kitchen cupboards by the height.
  • Number all of your doors. Tear off a piece of masking tape and stick it to the back of the door. Write the door number on the tape. This will help stop confusion when putting back your doors later.
  • Remove all of your door and drawer knobs / handles and put them into a bag so that you will not lose them.
  • Apply painter’s masking tape to the back of the door edges to stop the paint bleeding around the back of the door.
  • Remove all of your doors by unclipping the door hinge from the hinge plate (if you have clip-on hinges) or alternatively, loosen the screw that hold the door hinge to the hinge plate.
  • Use drop sheets to cover your kitchen benches and floors. Mask off any areas of your kitchen cabinets that you do not want covered with the laminate paint.
  • In order for the paint to adhere properly to the door, you will need to clean them thouroughly to remove all traces of grease and dirt. White Knight has a tile and laminate cleaner especially for this purpose. Spray the cleaner onto the door surface and wipe with a damp sponge (or cloth) working on a small area at a time.
  • Lightly sand the doors with very fine #240 grit wet and dry sandpaper. This will provide a key for the primer to adhere properly. Rinse with water and a damp sponge to remove all traces of dust. Leave the doors to dry completely.
  • Apply White Knight Tile and Laminate Primer thinly with a small microfiber paint roller (4mm nap) to the edges of the door first. Then prime the face of the door using a zig zag pattern to completely cover the door.
  • Lightly sand the primed door face and edges with #240 grit wet and dry sandpaper. Wipe off all dust with a damp cloth.
  • Apply the top coat using White Knight Laminate paint as per Step 9. The top coat will be touch dry in 2 hours but allow 6 hours before applying the finishing coat.
  • Before applying the finishing coat lightly sand the door face and edges with extra fine #600 grit wet and dry sandpaper.
  • Re-attach the doors and drawers to the kitchen cabinets. Attach the handles and knobs and you are finished!
