We are now also offering exquisite coatings from Fine Paints of Europe! We are the only Certified Painter in the Rocky Mountain region to offer these incredible paints.

You’re one step away from a more beautiful kitchen! Keep reading for a breakdown on our cabinet painting process.

Our Cabinet Painting Process Breakdown:

STEP 1 – Labeling, Cleaning & Masking Your Kitchen:

Our first step for any of our projects is site protection. We cover and protect all surfaces and finishes not receiving paint. Your cabinets will be the only surface not covered with paper or plastic. This creates a ‘tent’ around your kitchen to contain our work area. Our masking is impressively thorough and tight.

We remove doors and drawer fronts from the frames and boxes, remove all hardware and place them in ziploc bags in their respective boxes for reinstall.

STEP 2:  Prep Doors, Drawers, Frames

All cabinet doors, drawer-fronts and frames are prepared to meet or exceed industry standards. For Mod Paint Works, that means every surface gets sanded (bonus: we use HEPA sanders with vacuums!) with 180-240 grit sand paper. This cleans the existing surface, breaks down the existing finish to better accept the new, oil-based primer coats. Sanding contributes to ‘manual’ adhesion and oil-based primer has the ultimate ‘chemical’ adhesion providing an excellent, long-lasting base for the new paint coats.

STEP 2:  MPW’S Sanding is Better

As stated above, all cabinet surfaces begin with a full sand (HEPA approved, 99.9% dust free!) on all cabinet surfaces using our top of the line Festool sanders. Our sanding goes much deeper than a liquid  deglossing agent. As many surfaces as possible receive contact with our high-quality, dust-free sanders. Beveled edges are hand sanded to preserve shape.

Our Festool sanders leave a cleaner, better-prepared surface for primer and paint to bond with due to dust extraction.

Step 3: Priming & Filling

We apply oil-based primer to both sides of doors and drawer-fronts, as well as all boxes and frames. We go one step further and paint the underside of your boxes as well. We use oil-based primers as they are, and always will be, superior to waterbased primers – better adhesion, stain blocking properties, sand to very smooth surface for paint.

Once primed, we are able to see all existing damage which is filled with wood filler and sanded back smooth.

We inspect and vacuum excess dust and tack rag residual dust with denatured alcohol.

Step 4: Spraying Paint

Finally, the paint is ready to be applied. WE SPRAY ALL COATINGS FOR FACTORY-LIKE FINISHES!  We apply two coats of paint. The result is a beautiful, enamel surface that looks factory-finished.
