Laurie March, HGTV Remodels’ House Counselor, explains how to paint particle board kitchen cabinets.
As the host and creative force behind The House Counselor on HGTVRemodels.com, Laurie March guides her clients through the potential minefield that a remodeling project can become. Her approach to remodeling, which focuses on managing both the emotional and the tactical parts of a project, led the HGTV family of web sites to invite America along for the ride as she tackles challenging home renovations in Hollywood, CA.
Laurie’s passion for home improvement and remodeling was unearthed while remodeling her own 1920′s Spanish style home. Seeing the challenges firsthand, the entrepreneur took over and in 2005 Laurie founded Improvemental, a project management and design firm that has been a recognized fixture in the Los Angeles remodeling scene — completing over 50 homes for a highly discerning who’s who of writers, producers, and executives in LA.

Frustrated particle board cabinetry owners — unite! Yes you CAN paint particle board cabinets.
DO NOT SKIMP on preparation or materials if you are planning on doing this job yourself. Remove your hardware, put it in a safe place — including all the little screws. Clean your cabinetry really well with a degreaser before you begin. Some painters suggest giving it a light sanding first with a 220 grit sandpaper — if so use a tack cloth afterward to remove any dust particles. You can also fill holes with wood putty — but any damaged corners can be really hard to repair.
Prime your cabinetry with two coats of primer, letting it dry fully in between. Let each coat be a thin, light coat instead of one heavy coat. Sand after the primer coats too. Paint your top color on lightly as well — two thin even coats are better than one thick coat. Lots of folks suggest a clear coat afterward — like a floor finish. It’s really important to let each coat of paint dry fully — this drying time might change in different climates and weather.
Get the good stuff when it comes to primer, rollers and brushes. Most painters recommend a semi-gloss or a high gloss finish — and use a high-quality brush and foam roller to avoid marks in the finish!
If this sounds intimidating, consider hiring a pro to do it. If you’ve got a lot of cabinetry and don’t have a lot of time — a professional painter could be your best friend on this job — and get your kitchen back in shape faster.
Many people have wondered how a 6″ neo-magnet is shipped. In this video I show you how.
This is not an unpacking video since I unpacked the magnet a long time ago but I have kept most of the original packaging as an easy way of storing the magnet relatively safe.
Captions in case you don’t understand my english with a danish accent:
Hello. Since I published the video with my monster 6″ neodymium magnet a lot of people have been interested in how this magnet was delivered without sticking to everything.
Since I kept the original packaging as a storage for the magnet I can now show you how.
The magnet comes in a surprisingly small box but there is a little trick involved as you will soon see.
The box had 4 plastic strips around it as seen on the marks where I point.
Under an initial layer of styrofoam the little trick is revealed. The box has a thin sheet of iron in the top and bottom to shield – or rather redirect – the magnetic field from the magnet.
The sheet is pulled strongly towards the magnet so I have to be careful not to get cut.
Now I place the sheet far away from the magnet to avoid it flying against the magnet and through me with its sharp edges.
The next layers are made of pieces of plywood which can’t be compressed like the styrofoam.
After digging through more layers of styrofoam and plywood we find the magnet wrapped in plastic and paper. When delivered it came in vacuum packed plastic and paper wrapping like shown here with a much smaller magnet.
It takes a little persuasion to get the magnet out since it is attracted to the sheet of iron in the bottom af the box.
But there you have it: over 6½ kg of raw magnetic force.
So.. is it really shielded? No. Only enough for the postman to get it out of the van but still have some ‘What-da-f**k’-experiences. Yeah… he hates me…
