This is on kitchen cabinet doors with typical ogee rail treatment and flat panels with grooves. The client wants to keep existing doors if possible.

I’m thinking wipe down with naptha and use wb base primer.

Sanding out of the question too time consuming. I’ve thought of stripping the doors they are hickory with just poly no stain.

Thx.

Nah- Bad idea. I just tried that with an epic fail. Had to sand off the new finish that was coming off with my fingernail. I would do a scuff sand with 120 grit. Just get some scratches. Then hit it with shellac primer. I used Sherwin willaims. Test for adhesion before painting. If the primer sticks, you are good to go. The shellac dries super fast.

I agree with Mike but I would use 180 grit.

Ok sanding is a must what about the ogee moldings and corners of the panel?

I’m thinking start from scratch that way I can paint the panels separately the whole job will look better.

An option for the mouldings would be scotchbrite to scratch them, but buying new, out any material since you are painting, may be best option.

Have your say...
