Maintaining your cupboards is important for a consistently stunning finish


Maintaining your painted Cupboards

The beauty of painted cupboards is they can easily be revived with a fresh lick of paint. A little wear and tear from being used and loved is charming, but should you want to refresh your cupboards, simply give the whole surface another coat of paint.

Even if you only have small marks on your cupboards, you should re-paint the whole area (for example a whole door or a whole panel,). Just putting a blob of paint over the mark can often make it stand out even more than before.  

If you wish to refresh your cupboards then follow steps 2-5 of the ‘Painting’ guide above, but this time apply one coat of paint instead of two.

Ideally, try and use the same tin of paint as you originally used, as different batches of paint can vary slightly in colour. A tin of paint can last many years if the lid is sealed tight, kept indoors and away from frost, so do take care to preserve it well.
