Updating home with paint
 
8 Attachment(s)

I am updating a vacation home currently. This manufactured home was clad with faux oak veneer cabinets, faux crown molding, faux baseboards, and faux trim pieces. With some light washing with TSP, light sanding, and light priming, the paint stuck very well. Here are some pictures showing the before and after of some of the cabinets.

I've been scrubbing the cabinets with a strong solution of TSP on a scrub brush. Is does a great job of roughing up the finish. Once dried, I've been using a custom Big Box color, with a built in primer. I also bought a gallon of Kilz, but haven't needed it yet. Tomorrow, we start on the kitchen cabinets. I'll give you an update and a few after pics, but here is the before pics.

Well, 5 more days of work, 6 gallons of paint, and the walls are finally done. Now we move onto flooring and installing the new doors on my next trip.

They wanted over $100 dollars to replace the ugly chrome toilet paper roll, towel bar and hand towel with the newer oil rubbed bronze finish. I purchased a $5 can of oil rubbed bronze paint and sprayed it on all the chrome. What a nice change, which included the flush handle on the toilet.
