Staining painted cabinets.

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I have painted white cabinets in my bathroom. The paint is peeling due to moisture and age. Can I sand all the paint off and stain?

This depends on the construction of the cabinets. If everything is solid wood then sanding is one option. Another option is to use a paint stripper then sanding. This will cut out a lot of time and sanding dust.

There are many "friendlier" types of paint strippers on the market. These are worth trying before getting the strongest stuff you can find. Follow the manufactures directions for dwell time and neutralization.
