I have been doing a lot of kitchen cabinet makeovers and up until fairly recently, have brushed them all by hand. During the month of May I had two fairly large kitchens to complete, so borrowed a sprayer from my good friend and fellow decorative painter, Chris Smith. Now that the weather is warmer, I was able to set up my studio for spraying and vent outside with a large van in front of an open door. It’s a lot of work to set up for spraying, but since I was going to be doing two full kitchens back to back, I felt this was the way to go.
This particular kitchen had some issues to deal with. Here are the Before pictures. If you click on the photo to enlarge, you will see that some door panels are an entirely different shade of white from others. Also, a few of the panels are in pretty bad shape.
With a lot of careful prep work, these cabinets received a new lease on life!
A special thanks to Rose Ciesla for all her help and support with this kitchen, and to Chris Smith for lending me her sprayer and drying rack! I was frantically trying to get two kitchens done before my daughter’s wedding, Memorial Day Weekend and was a wee bit stressed! The second kitchen will be posted at a later date when I have pics. There was still some construction going on when I finished so the house was not ready to be photographed.
These were also great clients to work with and even though I rarely saw them, notes were left to know they appreciated the work we were doing. Here is one of the responses from a note I had left after I finished priming the frames. I didn’t want them to come home and think that was what their cabinets were going to look like.
