This summer I plan to paint my Kitchen cabinets.1970's standard L shaped. How do I calculate the no. of gallons I require.?
I already bought 2 gallons of 123 primer becoz of
a 'buy 1 get 1 free' sale at Home depot.I heard SW paints are expensive, so how should I caculate that.

RE: How to calculate the qty of paint needed for cabinets

Quality paint is not expensive. However, using cheap paint is very, very expensive.

The Pro Classic paint is worth every penny you pay for it. I recommend it if you're a SW shopper.

A gallon price is the best price and best value for your money. One gallon will cover approximately 350-400 sf. One gallon will most like do the cabinets unless you have a huge kitchen.
