I recently learned how to use paint stripper to remove paint off my kitchen cabs. Now I can't believe I ever used sand paper! It's so quick and easy.
Remove the cabinet doors and drawers and remove all pulls, knobs, latches and other hardware from these parts. Place the hardware and screws in plastic bags inside the cabinets where they will be easy to locate when you're ready to reassemble. Number each door and its corresponding location as you remove them.
You might spend hours and hours sanding cabinets to remove an old finish. And even then, there's nothing to ensure that you'll be able to completely remove the old material. Finish products penetrate wood and will not budge without excessive sanding.
Steps: 1. Make a sketch of the kitchen cabinets, then identify each door and drawer with a number. Place a small strip of masking tape onto each door and drawer, then mark the strips with the corresponding number shown on the sketch.

Matt is a professional painter and freelance writer, sharing his knowledge, house-painting tips, and product reviews. Cabinets with tannin stains in the existing paint, but without signs of paint failure, don't necessarily need to be stripped. Tannin staining happens when oils inside the wood bleed into paint and become visible. This is called tannin bleed-through.
