Cabinet Painting Job Steps

  • Remove and re-install existing hardware where needed.
  • Caulk & repair cracks and holes as needed.
  • Apply 1-coat of oil-based primer, after primer coat has dried completely, use 220-grit paper or finer and sand all surfaces lightly.
  • Apply 2-coats of paint (acrylic), sand between coats to ensure a smooth final finish. After your first coat has dried completely, sand all surfaces using fine-grit paper, taking extra care to smooth out any drips or pools that have formed in corners or elsewhere. Vacuum and wipe with paint thinner to remove all dust.
  • Use Oil Base Primer and Sherwin Williams Emerald Paint. (Top Quality)


Our cabinet painting process involves several steps to ensure a high-quality finish. First, we remove all doors and hardware. Next, we clean and sand the surfaces to remove any grease and create a smooth base. Then, we apply a primer to help the paint adhere better. Finally, we apply multiple coats of high-quality paint and reassemble the cabinets once they are fully dry.

The duration of the cabinet painting project depends on the size of your kitchen and the complexity of the work. On average, it takes about 3 to 5 days to complete the process. This timeframe includes preparation, painting, and drying time. We ensure minimal disruption to your daily routine and keep you informed throughout the process.
