Hi - I’m a beginner taking on painting my own kitchen. I’m still confused despite all the advice here as to whether I should be painting my unit doors flat - as I see laid out on lots on posts here - or hanging on their hinges.
If flat then I assume I can only paint one side on any day and not sure how I’ll be able to keep a large enough area pristine to fit all the doors and drawers laid out flat for the duration of the job as I think I might not manage 3-4 minutes a door.
If I understand Russ’s post correctly, I can paint frames and back edges of doors and rehang them before painting each coat front and back in one go in situ. So does that mean all 4 coats - primer to topcoat - to frame and back edge before rehanging? I can’t find any pics showing a half way stage like this but this would suit my space better.
Also - How do you avoid problems with the edges with either method.
My kitchen is new wood/MDF and my utility room old oak kitchen units cleaned back with Krudkutter. I’m planning to use a Zinsser primer, LG tinted undercoat, 2 coasts LG oil eggshell.
I hope someone can set me straight - I want to get it all clear in my head before I start.
