Remove all cabinet doors, all hardware, and cover anything in the room that you don't want paint on with a tarp. Then follow this step-by-step process.
The Process. Don't rush. Don't cut corners. Painting custom kitchen cabinets requires time, a plan, and the patience to do it right.
Bottom line? Either type will provide a good finish for your custom kitchen cabinets. Choose a latex paint that's 100% acrylic, which offers your cabinets enhanced durability and adhesion than vinyl acrylic.
