- Remove your old doors and hinges (Figure A). If you plan to use the old hinges, keep hinges and screws together in a convenient location.
- Remove drawers from the cabinets and set aside.
- Next, remove any cabinet moldings (Figure B ) .
- Remove any loose and/or peeling coatings from any surface you plan to cover with pressure Sensitive veneer or laminate. Any depressions left in the surface should be filled with hard drying putty and sanded smooth.
- Lightly sand any surfaces you plan to cover with self-adhesive coverings, using 150 grit sandpaper (Figure C). DO NOT USE A POWER SANDER. Just scuff the surface. This will help ensure a good bond when applying self-adhesive covering.
- Remove any dust or sanding particles with tack cloth before applying self-adhesive coverings.
- Clean the surface with a mild dishwashing liquid and water with a damp cloth. Don't get it soaking wet. Rinse with a damp rag and allow it to dry thoroughly. Use household ammonia to remove wax. TIP:Read the ammonia manufacturer’s warning and instructions before using.
