Old cupboards or cabinets begging for a makeover?

It’s easy to bring your old cabinets and cupboards back to life without changing the integrity of a vintage item. Add a splash of colour to cupboards by painting the inside of the cupboard without having to change the exterior. Even ordinary kitchen cabinets may be transformed in three easy steps.

Step 1

Wipe away any dust or dirt with a cloth to leave a clean, dust-free surface that’s ready to paint. Apply masking tape along the edges of the door and shelves to form a neat outline to paint within.

Step 2

Depending on the surface, it may be necessary to use a primer or undercoat such as Dulux Supergrip to ensure the paint bonds to the surface.

Step 3 Use a small or medium-sized paint brush to apply two layers of Dulux Pearlglo colour to the selected area (Bennum van Jaarsveld of Dulux SA used Emerald Delight on this piece). Use even strokes to ensure a smooth finish is achieved. Finally, remove the masking tape to reveal your masterpiece! Shopping list
