How to Paint Teak Bathroom Cabinet
Teak Bathroom Cabinet is often the focus of the room. Keeping it in good condition is important to maintain the overall appearance of the bathroom. Over time, the color of a bathroom cabinet may become worn and start loosening or cracking. Buying a brand new bathroom cabinet can be expensive and often difficult to install unless you are a regular craftsman. Removing a bathroom cabinet will give your old cabinet a bright, new look at no extra cost and work to install a brand new one.
Use a screwdriver to remove hinges and any handles or drawers on the Teak Bathroom Cabinet. This will make it easier to paint the entire cabinet without attempting to maneuver around the hinges and handles. Use filler or a small scraper to scrape off the tile or flaking color. Painting over this old, scalar paint will only leave an uneven surface. Sand the cabinet with a slip block or sandpaper. The goal is to get the cabinet as smoothly as possible before applying a new color. This will help the color to stick to the bathroom cabinet.
Wipe dust or paint around the Teak Bathroom Cabinet and work area. This prevents debris from mixing with fresh color. Tape the area of the wall around the cabinet so that there is no color on the wall. Also place target tape or masking tape around any hardware or fixtures on cabinets that you could not remove. Apply a primer undercoat to the cabinet. Buy a primer that is intended to be used on wood that has been painted earlier. Use an acrylic water-based type for faster drying. Depending on the color of the existing color of the bathroom cabinet and the new color you paint it, you may need to apply two layers of primer.tags:how to paint over teak wood cabinets
