We repainted this set of kitchen cabinets in Claremore. The client wanted to change the color of the cabinets, give them a clean and durable finish, and glaze/faux finish the island to match another piece they had in the dining room.
We painted all the cabinets a slight off white color (Sherwin Williams Moderate white) to match the backsplash tile and floor tiles.
We painted the cabinets with an oil based enamel paint that gets very hard and is very durable. It is a one part system. In this instance, the doors are sprayed, and cabinet boxes were brushed by hand.
General Painting Process
We start off all kitchen cabinet projects by creating a dust/fume barier around the work area. In this case, we erected a wall of plastic using sheet plastic and poles designed for the task.
Next we remove all the hardware and safety store it until we are ready to re-install everything.
The doors, drawers and shelves are taken to the shop to get prepped and sprayed.
Color And Paint
Kitchen cabinet painting is the only place that we still use Oil Based Paints. We exclusively use Sherwin Williams Pro-Classic Alkyd based paint. It offer the best and smoothest application and longest life. This stuff goes on like glass and wears like stone.
