We decided the kitchen needed a fresh look. The cabinets were in fine shape but bland, and lacking features common with custom cabinets. We used A Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations kit in that we had some left over from a previous project. A quality cabinet or trim paint would have worked fine as well.
- Prep and paint the cabinet frame.
- Prep and paint the cabinet doors.
- Install door / drawer handles (our cabinets didn’t have any)
We painted the cabinet frames by hand and sprayed the doors (front and back) with an HVLP sprayer and were really pleased with how it turned out. The nice thing about spraying the doors is that it goes A LOT faster. To provide increased durability we put two coats of white and three coats of clear finish on everything.
Now, on to the remaining cabinets…
