Your Ultimate Guide to Cabinet Refinishing: Revitalize Your Kitchen

Updated: Jan 13


The kitchen is the center of the home, where laughter flows freely like made coffee and memories simmer. Even the most colorful kitchen, though, can seem a little...faded after a while. An overall feeling of "eh" coupled with dingy cabinets and chipped paint can sap the cooking spirit. This is where Malone Painting steps in, providing your kitchen a complete makeover with a revolutionary cabinet refinishing experience rather than simply a new coat of paint.


Your Ultimate Guide to Cabinet Refinishing: Revitalize Your Kitchen

Our Process of Refinishing Cabinets: From Bland to Grand


Here, we're not discussing a careless weekend project. Our painstaking procedure guarantees a perfect, long-lasting finish that will make your cabinets appear as though they just came out of a design magazine:

Step 1: Removal and Transport


Begin by gently removing the doors, drawers, and hardware. Treat them like delicate puzzle pieces, as you'll be taking them to a controlled, off-site spraying facility for their individual paint transformations.


Step 2: Deep Cleaning and Sanding

Now, it's time to pamper the remaining cabinet carcass. Give it a thorough spa treatment by meticulously degreasing every inch. This removes any lingering dirt, grease, or grime that might interfere with the paint's adhesion.

Next, comes the sanding – think of it as a gentle exfoliation for your cabinet. With a light touch, use fine-grit sandpaper to scuff the surfaces. This creates the perfect canvas for the paint to adhere to. If you're dealing with stubborn, old paint, don't be afraid to use slightly coarse sandpaper in those areas. Just remember to be gentle and consistent!

Step 3: Priming for Perfection

Now comes the magic touch: the primer. Apply one or two coats of high-bond primer using a spray gun or brush. This creates a rock-solid foundation for the finish coats, ensuring your paint job lasts for years to come. Think of it as an invisible superhero suit for your cabinet, protecting it from all sorts of wear and tear.

Step 4: Color Comes Alive!

It's time for the star of the show – the paint! Choose a color that speaks to your soul and complements your existing décor. Apply one or two light coats of your chosen hue, using smooth, even strokes. Remember, multiple thin coats are always better than one thick one to avoid drips and unevenness.

Step 5: A Seamless Finish

While your doors and drawers are getting their makeover at the spraying facility, don't forget about the rest of the kitchen! Use rolling or spraying techniques to apply the same finish color to the other cabinets and surrounding surfaces. This ensures a cohesive and visually stunning flow throughout the entire space.


Step 6: The Grand Finale: Reinstallation and Touches of Brilliance

The moment you've been waiting for! It's time to bring your masterpiece home. Carefully reattach the doors, drawers, and hardware, breathing new life into your bookcase cabinet. Like a meticulous jeweler, perform any necessary touch-ups to ensure every detail shines brighter than a freshly sharpened chef's knife.

And there you have it! Your once-tired cabinet is now a stunning conversation starter, ready to proudly display your favorite decorative treasures. Remember, with a little preparation and the right technique, you can transform any piece of furniture into a cherished part of your home.
