Prepping Your Bathroom Cabinets
The first step to this makeover is to clean your bathroom cabinets really well. I used Dixie Belle’s White Lightning. Making sure the cabinets were cleaned really well. Afterwards I took a rag with just plain water and wiped over the cabinets again to get any residual soap off. This part os very important. As a result you will not have adhesion issues from left over cleaning residue.
Before painting, the doors and hardware need to be removed. I also removed the makers tag with a screw driver.
Let’s Get Painting These Bathroom Cabinets
After the cleaning is done and the hardware and doors are off, paint the shell of the cabinet. Afterwards you will paint the doors. Once there were two coats of paint and everything is dry, you can put the doors back on. Be sure to check out if any touchups are needed. Dixie Belle’s Finishing Pad is a great tool to go over the dried finish to knock down and smooth any minor imperfections.
Adding Gator Hide
Once the paint is dry and you have used the finishing pad, you will seal the cabinet. I used Dixie Belle’s Gator Hide and blue sponge. Pour the Gator Hide into a disposable bowl or plate, or in this case I used a Tupperware lid. (Because I have a million and no container to go with them). I used a dry sponge and apply with long even strokes.
