Create the kitchen of your dreams without lifting a finger.

Cabinet painting is a sure way to make your kitchen feel new again. A fresh coat of paint can give your kitchen a whole new look. We just love the reactions from our clients that get their cabinets refinished. This affordable kitchen renovation is a less disruptive option, as you can still use your kitchen while the cabinets are being painted.

Our goal is to try to begin your cabinet project on a Monday, with a 2-3 day onsite production, and return on Friday to assemble the doors and finalize the project. You should be able to use your kitchen by day 3, before we return to assemble the doors and hardware.

We ask for clients to not enter the Kitchen area for 2-3 days while we are working. We suggest planning on not using your kitchen for this duration (2-3 days) – however, upon request, we are happy to cut a functioning slit in the masking for the fridge so that you can access your refrigerator as needed. After these 2-3 Days, your kitchen will be ready for you to use again before we return with the drawers and doors. We always suggest moving your coffee maker, toaster, etc. to an adjacent room/area for that timeframe so you can easily access as needed.
  1. Mask off counter-tops, walls, floor, door ways, and appliances.
  2. Remove Doors, Drawers, and Shelves(Re-install after painting).
  3. Clean/Degrease all cabinet surfaces with a degreaser.
  4. Sand all cabinet surfaces.
  5. Vacuum and wipe down surfaces with tack cloth.
  6. Apply two coats of oil-based primer.
  7. Sand all cabinet surfaces again.
  8. Apply two coats of high performance enamel.

Our standard procedure is to spray your cabinets (versus painting with a brush) to ensure the best finish possible!

Please do not disassemble or remove any doors, drawers, and/or hardware before we arrive. We have a process for labeling and organizing all items. Please empty all drawers. Please clear off all countertop space to ensure thorough masking. For items in Cabinet Boxes: Food and Items can stay; however – we ask that there is a 2-3 inch of empty space from the outside edge of the cabinet to the stored items, in order for our team to properly seal and mask off the cabinets.
Hardware must remain original, or replaced with the exact type/fit as the original hardware. Drilling new holes or replacing with a different style hardware is not typically part of the scope of work. Please let us know if you do plan to replace your hardware with new hardware that fits the existing holes, so we can verify and plan ahead. *If you plan to install different hardware that will require new holes, let us know so that we can fill these in for you prior to painting.
(We recommend waiting until cabinets are completely cured before washing/cleaning). The best way to clean your cabinets is with warm, soapy water or a mild cleaner. A soft cloth or microfiber towel is recommended. Be sure to follow up the washing by using a separate, dry towel/cloth to wipe your cabinets dry. Be careful not to slab a soaked rag on the cabinets where excessive water and puddling could occur. This could damage the coating and cause wrinkling or discoloration. Also, do not use harsh solvents or cleaners as this can melt the coating. Never use a sponge or scrub your cabinets.

Painting your Kitchen Cabinets completely updates your home – at a fraction of the cost (and time) of a full remodel!


Some common benefits are:

  • Eco-friendly, lessen your carbon footprint
  • The color possibilities are pretty endless with Paint!
  • More cost effective
  • Faster timeline for completion compared to a remodel
  • Increase the value of your home with a significant ROI!

We typically use high quality products from Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore and do not use paint provided by a client as this may have an effect on quality or application, and will not be covered by our warranty.
