Emptying the Cabinets

The very first thing we have to do before painting it is to empty the cabinets. We certainly do not want to paint it from the outside only, right? That would be so lame. That’s why renovate it inside and out will bring much better result in total.

Removing the Doors, Shelves, and Drawers

For example, we can start with the top cabinet from left to right and then continue it to the bottom part with the same or otherwise turn. Besides the door, we also need to take off the shelves as well as the drawers. This removal aims to let us do the next parts easier.
