repainting kitchen cabinets after taking off molding-trying to avoid shadow outline in new paint
Ghost of old molding shows through new primer and final paint.
We’re giving our kitchen a face lift that includes repainting the cabinets. I’m knocking off the decreative molding that is on the cabinet doors so they are simply flat fronts.
The molding is glued on, and i’ll be filing and sanding any damage caused by removing the molding.
One the door i tried, even after using a random orbit sander and priming prior to painting, I still see a faint ghost or shadow of the old molding showing through the new paint. Is the ghost/shadow outline avoidable??
do I simply need a couple coats of primer prior to painting??? I welcome suggestions from experienced painters. thanks in advance. – adam
