Finally, prime the doors and drawers separately, if you’ve chosen to remove them. Take off any tape labels but keep them nearby. Start with the backside and apply a smooth, even coat. When its dry, flip the door over and paint the front. Start with the detailed, difficult areas, making sure the primer doesn’t pool in the corners, and feather out the edges. Then work on the larger, flat surfaces with a foam roller. Use painter’s tripods to lift the doors and drawers up from your painting surface, so you can reach the edges more easily. For drawers, it’s better to stick to painting just the front piece rather than the entire thing, as sometimes this can cause them to stick in the frames.
