This post showcases a set of maple cabinets in a Woodstock, IL home we spray painted white. Like most of our customers, this family was sick of the natural wood color but they didn’t want to replace the cabinets and go through an expensive kitchen remodel.
Painting is always the best money-saving option if the cabinets aren’t warped and if you’re happy with the layout. These cabinets were in great condition and only needed a pro paint job to make them look fresh and new.
These cabinets were transported from the house in Woodstock, IL to our shop where we carefully prepped and spray painted them. We also spray painted the cabinet frames in this home. Continue reading below to learn more about how we painted these kitchen cabinets.

How We Painted These Cabinets
These kitchen cabinets were painted with a professional sprayer. Spraying is the best way to paint cabinets because it provides a smoother finish than brushing and rolling. A sprayed finish looks and feels so much smoother.
Since these kitchen cabinets are made of maple, they didn’t require any grain filling, only minor patching from wear and tear. First we cleaned the surface with Krud Kutter de-greaser. Then we lightly sanded all six sides of the cabinets with fine-grit sandpaper.
After sanding the cabinets, we cleaned them again to remove the dust. We sprayed every door and drawer front with a special primer surfacer to seal the surface and maximize adhesion with the top coats. We used a lacquer-based coating for this cabinet job. The product we use is made for use on furniture and cabinetry.
After spraying two coats of primer, we sprayed two coats of the color. For these cabinets, our customer chose Pure White (SW 7005). This is a popular color we have used many times on cabinets.
The cabinet frames were prepped and painted using the same exact process outlined in this post. The customer cleared the kitchen and we covered everything not being painted with plastic and masking paper before spraying.
The kitchen frames only took three days to finish, including priming and painting and clean-up. The customer was able to use the kitchen until the day of spraying, which only took one day to finish.
Once the kitchen frames were done, we delivered the painted doors and installed everything. We also installed new door handles for the customer.
