Don’t spend thousands to get new cabinets when all they really need is the East to West treatment.
Kitchen cabinet refinishing isn’t as daunting or expensive of a process as you might think, and in a day or two, your kitchen will have experienced a dramatic transformation. We tailor each job to meet the specific needs of each homeowner. Whether you are looking for the most price-effective option, or you want the highest-possible finish, we have the solution.
Our most common process is that we begin by removing all hardware, and labeling each cabinet door and face plate to make sure we know which piece belongs where, down to every last screw and knob. After everything is organized, we remove the existing finish with fine-grit sandpaper. If necessary, we use de-glossing liquid when sanding isn’t practical.
We always use acrylic primer as the first coat to ensure that the new paint will have a good surface to “bite” onto, and to seal any oils or tannins that tend to leak out of wood pores. One more quick sand with 220-grit sanding paper ensures a perfectly smooth surface by knocking down any wood fibers, and finally it is time to dip into that beautiful finish paint!
To apply our high-traffic cabinet paint, we use a super-fine foam roller nap called a “red feather” which leaves behind very little to no texture. If you desire a more glassy appearance, we are also able to spray cabinet doors using a pressurized “golden gun” system. Typically, it takes between 2-3 coats to achieve perfect coverage.
After everything is thoroughly dried, we re-install the hardware, re-hang the cabinets, and stand back to admire a job well-done.
