Lacquering your cabinets can be done through a few simple steps. While it sounds like a decent DIY project, it is better to talk to experts for beautiful lacquer cabinets in Hollywood to make sure the task is done correctly the first time. The beauty of lacquer is that it is durable and easy to update. As long as decent quality products are used as well as proper technique, your cabinets can be updated properly. In addition, a contractor will already have the tools necessary for the entire process.
The steps to lacquering are generally easy and simple. According to Home Guides, you will have the best results for your cabinets when you first remove them before beginning the process of adding shine. Lacquering can be a multi-day process as you will need to remove your cabinet doors, sand them, stain them, and let they dry. Sanding has a tendency to be relatively messy. So either having an open space outdoors, or laying down a tarp indoors would be preferable. However, if you choose to work outside, making sure to work on a dry day would be the best for the outcome. With a humid day the lacquer could “blush” and the texture might seem creamy. After sanding, immediately apply the shine and let the wood absorb. After sitting overnight, the cabinets should be ready for two or three more layers of the spray.
As you lacquer cabinets in Hollywood, be sure to have a fan or two on hand at all times. The chemicals used for the spray are highly flammable, and not very healthy to breathe in. Have the fans angled to where the fumes are being blown toward an open door or window. Letting the fumes exit the area will keep you safe in your home, as well as anyone else working on the project. Breathing in these chemicals may not be detrimental in the moment, but over time they could have lasting negative effects on your lungs and body as said by the Postgrad Med Journal.
