Procedure To Paint Mobile Home Kitchen Cabinets
Mobile Home Kitchen Cabinets are usually made of wood or laminate product. In order to give the mobile home kitchen cabinets an updated, pleasing, and cleaner look, the user needs to apply a new coat of paint to it by following the below-given steps:

If the mobile home kitchen cabinets consist of laminate, the user needs to wipe them down with a clean rag dampened with mineral spirits. After mineral spirits wipe down, the user needs to wipe the laminate cabinets again with a clean rag dampened in a solution containing equal parts of ammonia & water. If the cabinets consist of wood, the user needs to sand them down with 1500 grit fine gauge sandpaper. Once sanded, the sanding dust should be wiped away with a clean paintbrush.

The laminate cabinets should be primed with a coat of bin primer. The primer coat will help the color to adhere well on to the laminate surfaces. The user can skip the step if the cabinets consist of wood. The wooden cabinets require a coat of primer if they have unsightly discolorations.

After the second coat of paint, both laminate & wood cabinets should be allowed to dry overnight.
