1. Remove doors, drawers and hardware
Removing hinges and pulls gives you the flattest surface to paint.
2. Find a workspace to paint your doors
You’ll need to leave them in your workspace for extended periods to dry.
Use A. Richard Painter's Pyramid #29510 to install your doors on a flat surface. Pyramids hold the workpiece above your working surface for less mess and easier cleanup.
3. Sand lightly & Clean the surfaces
Use a medium grit sandpaper (100- to 150-grit) to roughen up
the surface. Use A. Richard sander #702 or #B-1 & sandpaper #18313
Clean the surfaces.
Apply primer and let it dry for 24 hours.
Use A. Richard mini foam rollers #94005 or 1/4'' (6mm) Woven Ultra mini rollers #94267
5. Sand the primer
Lightly sand with 220-grit sandpaper to smooth out drips or pools.
6. Apply the first coat
Cut in on uneven surfaces and corners with an angled brush.
Use A. Richard E-volution 2'' (50 mm) #82812
On flat surfaces, use a foam or microfiber roller. Let the paint dry completely. Use A. Richard mini foam rollers #94005 or 1/4'' (6mm) Woven Ultra mini rollers #94267
7. Sand again
Once the paint is fully dry, sand with 220-grit sandpaper. When done, remove any dust with a slightly damp cloth.

Again, apply paint. Let the paint dry for 24 hours.
