Painting Kitchen Cabinets the Right Way

The Spray Painters Profile is a smart way to breathe new life into your most used space without the expense of ripping up old ones, buying and installing a new kitchen and living with a disorganized mess for 8 to 12 weeks. And you don’t even have to hire a pro — with some paint and basic tools, you can make the change yourself for under $50. However, this DIY project is not a lazy Sunday afternoon activity — it’s time-consuming and difficult, especially for those who are inexperienced with painting.

Behind the Spray: Unveiling the Profile of Expert Spray Painters

Start by making a list of everything you’ll need and setting aside the amount of time needed to complete this task. It’s important to have a clear plan and to work in sections to minimize your frustration with waiting for the cabinet doors and frames to dry.

Before you do anything else, find the right cabinet paint color for your space. Samples are always a good idea since paint colors can look different in your own home’s lighting and even from room to room.

Once you’ve selected your paint, apply a coat of oil-based primer to the cabinet boxes, drawer fronts and doors. Wait for this to dry completely before sanding with 220-grit sandpaper. Vacuum the surfaces to remove any remaining sanding dust.

Once your surface is clean and free of any flaws, apply a second coat of cabinet paint. Allow this to dry completely before reattaching the doors and drawer fronts.
