We bought an old cabinet and decided to entirely paint it, gloss it, and make it look much better. Here is how we did it.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Remove the Knobs and Start Sanding
This is a fairly important step so you can properly apply any wood stains/paint and make sure you don't get scratches on the knobs
Step 2: Be Ready to Paint
We chose to paint untop of an entire sheet of painter's paper, used latex coded paint, and made sure to use some of those spongy wooden paint brushes
Step 3: Start the Drawers First
Start painting the drawers first after you sanded them
Step 4: Paint the Sides and Dust
Paint the sides and start dusting your creation once the paint dries
Step 5: You Are Done
Great job, now you have your new cabinet. A few tips: Make sure everything such as the locks work (easy fix going to ACE hardware), also make sure that you haven't missed a spot to paint i.e do touchups
