Beside this, is it necessary to sand between coats of paint?
Sand with fine sandpaper between coats after they dry. Make sure you remove sanding residue before applying additional coats. I recommend three thin coats of paint, but it all depends on the color and consistency. After the final coat of flat paint, sand lightly with super fine sandpaper.
Secondly, what grade of sandpaper should I use between coats of paint? 180 to 220 Grit Sandpaper: Finer grit sandpaper is great for removing the scratches left by coarser grits on unfinished wood and for lightly sanding between coats of paint. 320 to 400 Grit Sandpaper: Very fine grit sandpaper is used for light sanding between coats of finish and to sand metal and other hard surfaces.
Then, how many coats of paint do I need for cabinets?
Do I need to sand after priming cabinets?
Labeling your doors, cleaning and prepping the wood, priming, and sanding in between coats of paint are absolutely necessary for a great finished product. You don't need to sand your cabinets before painting them. In fact, they advise against it.
