A lot of homeowners skip this step while painting or refinishing kitchen cabinets. But if you want your end product to look good, you should consider applying primer to your bare kitchen cabinets and their doors. Not only does this product make it easier for the paint to stick but also keeps the wood from absorbing the paint and the knots from bleeding through, covers up minor imperfections and prevents any blotches in the colour.
While applying primer on the cabinets, start with the inside and then move towards the outside. You can use a brush or a small roller for the purpose. Also, remember than primer application doesn’t have to be perfect, so just focus on covering the entire surface instead of worrying about making even strokes with your brush.
