14 Big Mistakes You Make Painting Kitchen Cabinets

You don’t remove the doors off and drawers

This is a crucial first step: Take all the doors off, pull the drawers out and remove the hardware knobs and hinges. Some people try to save time by painting everything – hinges and all – while they’re still in place, but Petersik warns that it’s not a long-term fix.

“Your cabinets and hardware will start to chip and show signs of wear within a month – or even immediately.” Once the paint on the hinges starts to crack, all you can do is sand everything down and soak the hardware to remove the paint, so save yourself the aggravation.
