Painted Kitchen Cabinets
Painted kitchen cabinets are a very popular option for people that don’t want the traditional look of wood. Replacing your cabinets can be time consuming and very expensive. Painting your existing cabinets is a cost effective alternative.
While Pinterest, Good Housekeeping, and DIY websites make painting your kitchen cabinets look easy, in reality, it’s a project that has many opportunities to be a disaster. For a long lasting paint job you need to follow very particular processes and use high-grade products to avoid future chipping and peeling. And remember, proper preparation is as important as the painting itself.
Kitchen Cabinet Painting Steps
- Number and remove all cabinet doors and hardware.
- Clean grime and grease off all surfaces.
- Sand, dust, and vacuum. If you don’t have a clean painting surface the paint won’t stick.
- Apply a quality primer. Skipping this step can cause knots and stains to bleed though as your paint cures.
- Fill all holes and dings.
- Sand, dust, and vacuum…. Again
Now that your cabinets have been properly prepped, we can begin painting.
- Apply the first coat of paint. High-quality paint is worth the investment.
- Sand, dust, and vacuum. Remember; If you don’t have a clean painting surface the paint won’t stick.
- Apply second coat of paint. (repeat as needed)
- Reassemble the doors with hardware and remount.
- Then we do a full cleanup. Our goal is to make your home look better than when we started!
- And after your project is complete, we will do a full inspection. This helps to ensure that everything has been completed to your specifications and that you are happy.
