How to Paint Oak Cabinets

Update your kitchen or bathroom with paint - easy how to paint instructions using FAT Paint for your oak cabinets with Front Porch Mercantile

I’ve received lots of questions about how I updated my guest bathroom and how I prepped to paint oak vanity cabinets in my guest bathroom, so I thought I’d share.

We were preparing our house for sale and wanted a fresh look. This bathroom  was updated in a few hours, why do we wait so long to do projects?

Oak Vanity Cabinets before FAT Painting

How to FAT Paint oak cabinet

I prepped to paint oak cabinets by removing the hardware and giving them a light sanding followed by a good cleaning with a degreaser. I use Spray 9 and rinse well, however, any good degreaser will work.

I used 2 coats of Couture Linen FAT Paint chalk style paint.

I lightly sanded it with 400 grit sandpaper, not distressing, just giving it a smooth finish.

Wipe off excess dust

Topcoat with FAT Paint’s Clear Coat (you can also use Miss Mustard Seed’s Tough Coat)

I let the cabinets cure for about 2 days (mostly because I was also renovating 400 other things at the time) and then put the hardware back on and everything back in place.

    My first thought was why would you paint oak but I love the look – very clean, fresh and inviting.
