Painting cabinets costs a lot less than buying replacements. New
cabinets, even for the average size kitchen, can cost as much as $10,000 or more. Not only
does having cabinets professionally painted cost far less than buying new ones, but paint also
updates an outdated kitchen, increasing property value.
Most of our customers have maple cabinets, or oak, that they
want painted white. Grey is another popular color, but white is by far the most popular choice and

Preparing and painting cabinets is a tedious process
that must be done correctly for a professional, durable paint finish. Our surface preparation consists of
thorough cleaning, sanding, caulking, applying grain filler if needed, priming, spray painting and installing the
doors at the end. The doors are removed for prep and spray painting.
Wet doors are stored on drying racks after each coat of
paint. We use Pro Classic semi-gloss enamel from Sherwin Williams, a durable acrylic paint that
dries fast, allowing installation the day after the painting is done.
Painting Oak and Maple
Oak is an open grain wood with deep cracks and pores that
show through paint if filler isn't used during preparation. Grain filler is applied to oak to fill in the natural
cracks so these imperfections aren't visible in the final coat of paint.
Unlike oak, maple is a closed grain wood that does
not need to be prepared with grain filler before priming and painting. Maple is very smooth and shows no
wood grain pattern through paint.
Cabinet doors are primed with two coats of shellac
primer to completely seal the surface, preventing tannin from bleeding through the top coats of paint. The
semi-gloss enamel we use, Pro Classic (Sherwin Williams), is a leveling
paint that levels out perfectly on cabinet doors when sprayed for a beautiful, smooth
