How to Reface a Cabinet Door

  1. Sand away any existing finish on your cabinets.
  2. Seal the wood then apply paint or your varnish selection.
  3. Now, here comes the more challenging part. Most kitchen cabinet doors have raised parts, grooves, and other textural details that make sanding and repainting a pain. Once you realize what you’re up against and still want to take the next step, you will need to invest in fine sand paper, a Dremel tool, and a relatively small paintbrush to get in the grooves of the wood cabinets to paint them correctly.
