Painting Kitchen Cabinets Before And After

Ever since I moved into my house just over a year ago, I have just felt like my kitchen was too monochromatic. The floor color, blind color and cabinet color were all so similar and it was starting to suck the life out of me. I wanted to update/change something. I decided the best/cheapest route for me would be to have my cabinets painted. White is the new cool kid on the block and I thought that by painting the cabinets white it would bring some lightness and brightness into my kitchen. Another thing about my kitchen is that it is on the east side of the house. This means that the morning hours are light and bright in my kitchen but after about noon it’s dark. The color of the cabinets did not help this. I knew right away that I would be definitely hiring someone to paint my cabinets. Let’s just say I’m not the most patient or perfectionist DIYer. Which means that projects come out horrible because I don’t want to wait for paint to dry etc. I also have a motto in life which is “eh, it’s good enough.” This is good for being easy going, bad for projects that need preciseness. Soooo, I decided to hire the Utah Paint Pro–Chameleon Painting. I knew when I looked at some of the befores and afters on their webpage that they would do a great job!

After: Preferred Seating The existing cherry cabinets didn’t fit the homeowners’ style, but they didn’t want to rip them out, so some of the upper cabinets got a coat of white paint, while the island was brightened with a pale blue hue. Stock cabinets and chunky traditional-style legs found online expand the island and create a much-needed seating area. A larger window and the painted cabinets help this kitchen feel airy and bright.

To break this dated kitchen out of its style rut, the homeowners needed a game plan. Their goal: to create a space that was not only bright and fresh but also functional. Painting the sea of wood was a must, starting with the cabinets. Other much-needed updates included opening up the kitchen’s layout to capitalize on natural light, shifting appliance placement for better efficiency, redesigning the island, and installing a banquette breakfast area.

After: Sizeable in Slate Inspired by a favorite restaurant, this family kitchen stretches out to become a hip, industrial-style hangout. Pale gray perimeter cabinets, a deeper blue-gray island, and steel shelves flank the range while delivering a bistro-like vibe. The kitchen’s large scale allowed the homeowners to forgo hanging cabinets for sleek metal shelves while also reorienting the island.

As you may remember from this post (where I painted the insides of my cabinets with chalkboard paint), I mentioned that I had just re-painted my cabinets. That was true. When we first moved into this house, the kitchen cabinets had already been painted. It was the worst paint job ever. EVAH. There were heavy brushstrokes everywhere and the spraypainted hinges and hardware were rusty and gross. It was a mess.

After: Full of Family and Function Barely-gray cabinets create a neutral kitchen with style. The granite countertops and gray subway tile backsplash pair perfectly with the color scheme, creating a soothing and timeless space. Refined touches such as turned legs on the island and a custom vent hood create a kitchen that feels high-end and custom, but the durable granite counters and hardwood floors are perfect for this busy family’s daily use.

Step 4 Sand Then Clean the Surfaces Allow the filled areas to dry, then use sandpaper to smooth out the surface of the cabinets. If your repainting project is just a facelift for the cabinets, you don’t need to sand and paint the inside of the cabinets; mask off the interiors with painters’ tape for a clean finish and sand only the front surfaces and visible edges of the cabinet face frames. Use a wood sanding block to prevent rounding over the wood edges. When sanding, there is no need to remove all of the old paint if it is sound and well-adhered; just roughen the surface to provide the new paint with a firm, clean base for better adhesion. Pay particular attention to especially worn areas of old finish, which typically get the most use. Also be sure to sand over shiny areas to deglaze any remaining previous finish. Stubborn finishes may require rubbing with denatured alcohol and fine steel wool. If the old paint is flaking off in places, the original finish did not adhere well to the wood surface. This is typically due to moisture or greasy residue getting under the paint layer or into the wood itself, which can be expected in kitchens. Sand these areas to bare wood and spot-prime with a stain-killing primer/sealer before repainting. Wherever you sand down to bare wood, try to blend or “feather” the edges where the old paint meets the wood so the new paint will lay flat, and the paint edges will not be visible or “telegraph” through the new finish. Thoroughly vacuum the sanding dust from all surfaces. If you have a pneumatic air compressor, use high-pressure air to blow the dust out of crevices or molding details. Wipe down the areas to be painted with a tack cloth to pick up any remaining sanding residue
