The kitchen is the heart of your home. It experiences a lot of use and a lot of wear and tear. Your cabinets are no exception. You can now renew your kitchen cabinets in 2 easy steps, without breaking your bank.

Step-by-step

STEP 1: Preparing your brushes

If you’re using water based paint soak your brush in an inch of water for 10-15min, then remove and spin in between your hands to remove excess water. If you’re using oil-based paint, follow the same steps using turps.

TIP: For DIYers we recommend using a 50mm or 63mm brush allowing easy control and greater efficiency for getting the job done.
