Kitchen cabinets accumulate dirt and grease over time. Before proceeding with the painting, it is important to clean the surface thoroughly and remove any kind of dirt. We used tri-sodium phosphate solution to clean the surface and allowed it to dry.
Our client wanted us to paint and refinish the kitchen cabinets of her home located in Fort Pierce, Florida on Hutchinson Island. As you can see from the pictures, the kitchen cabinets don’t look too good. Now, as we suspected, our client informed us that the previous staining job was pretty messy. We will talk more about that later; let’s get back to what we were asked to do. So, our client wanted us to paint the kitchen cabinets to a solid off white color. Want to know what we did next? Well, read on…………..
The Plans and Preparations
We always, always stress on the fact that making the right plans and preparations are necessary. It doesn’t matter how big or small a project really is, planning and preparing is necessary. You need to have the right sand papers, primers, colors, paint brushes, paints, sprayers, etc in place before starting with the project. Otherwise, things will get really messy!
For this kitchen cabinet refinishing project in Hutchinson Island, we brought all the doors and drawers of the kitchen cabinet to our shop.
The Prep Work
Painting kitchen cabinets or any surface, for that matter isn’t about getting straight to the point. It involves prep work and a lot of it. Coming back to this Hutchinson Island kitchen cabinet repainting project, our client informed that the previous owner hired a handyman to stain the cabinets darker. As expected, the handyman didn’t strip the existing finish before staining and the end result was disappointing,
This clearly shows why you shouldn’t hire anyone other than professional kitchen cabinet painters for your project. Amateur painters and part-time workers will do a below-par job and you will end up spending more money in the end.
Talking about our prep work, have a look at how we accomplished this.
The Painting Process
Once the surfaces of the kitchen cabinets were cleaned, sanded and primed, it was time for us to start the painting. At Jaworski Painting, we use the best paints and materials in the industry. Accordingly, we started painting the kitchen cabinets with Sherwin Williams Pro, which is an oil-based paint and provides excellent finish and durability. We applied two coats of paint and used spray painting mechanism to achieve a smooth factory-grade finish. Needless to say, the cabinets looked as good as new after the painting was completed. Our client was very happy with the work and the fact that we changed the appearance of her old, shabby kitchen cabinets into smooth and shiny new ones was a pleasant surprise for her.
