Step 2: Remove cabinet accessories and hardware

When painting your kitchen cabinets, we take no short cuts, ensuring the job is done correctly. With a rush job, the end result will not look good and taking short cuts will simply result in hinges and hardware that are covered with paint. In order to achieve a neat and perfect kitchen cabinet renovation, it’s important to remove all drawers, hardware and accessories from the cabinets prior to painting.
