Cabinet Painting and Refinishing Preparation in Bakersfield, CA

To prepare kitchen cabinets for painting or refinishing, the process involves removing the hinges from both the cabinet box and doors, followed by a thorough cleaning using a heavy degreaser to remove any dirt or residue. Then, the cabinets are sanded with increasingly fine grits to create a smooth surface for priming and painting. After sanding, primer is applied to ensure proper adhesion of paint. Another round of sanding is done to smooth out any imperfections before applying the first coat of paint.

Once the primer has “baked” another round of light sanding is done to smooth out any imperfections before applying the first coat of paint. After the first coat of paint has dried, a light sand is done to smooth out any imperfections. A final coat of paint is finally applied. Upon request, we can install new hinges and handles, or re-install the original hinges and handles. The final finish is a per project basis and the final look and feel depends on the customers preference!

We recently completed a kitchen cabinet painting project, transforming varnished cabinets into impressive masterpieces! Our thorough preparation process began with a comprehensive wash using a heavy degreaser to eliminate any grease and grime buildup. We then utilized multiple sanding grits to break down the shiny finish and ensure a smooth surface for paint. Once the surface lost its gloss, we thoroughly removed any dust before applying a coat of primer. After allowing it to dry, we added two top coats of premium cabinet paint, resulting in a durable and captivating finish that will stand the test of time. The cabinets look brand new and are ready to impress for years to come!
