Step Four: It’s almost time for some primer. Before you can start painting, make sure you use painter’s tape to protect the hardware from the paint. You’ll probabbly need an exacto knife or scissors to make sure you cover the hardware precisely.
Step Five: Primer! Spray a light coat of primer over each cabinet. Let this layer dry and repeat on the opposite side of the cabinet door.
Step Six: Use a paint brush to prime the cabinet base. I only painted the outside of the base, however, if these were anywhere other than my garage, I’d definitely prime the inside of the cabinets as well.
A super helpful tip: Nail the hardware into some leftover cardboard (or spare corkboard) to keep each piece standing up straight. This will ensure you can paint the entire handle in one sitting rather than only being able to paint one side and then having to turn the handle and paint the other. The cork board will help make this one stop shopping…
