Spray the back of the doors first. This lets you get used to spraying before you paint the front. Start by spraying the edges. Rotate the door on the turntable to paint each edge so you won’t have to change your body position. Move your arm across the entire edge of the door, starting the spray before the paint lands on the door, and keep spraying past the end. Keep the nozzle 10 to 12 in. from the door. After painting all four edges, start at the top of the door and spray in a sweeping motion back and forth, moving down just enough each time to overlap the previous pass by 50 percent until you reach the door bottom.


Don't Desert Your Island If you love your kitchen cabinets, but want to add some interest to the space for very little money and time, consider changing the color of your island. This has been a popular design element for years and is showing no signs of changing anytime soon. Paint it, stain it a darker color or clad it in beadboard. You could even put corbels under the breakfast bar for added dimension and inexpensive customization. Are You Both Worn Out? These kitchen cabinets are hopefully in worse shape than yours, but they're not that uncommon. If you like the style of your existing cabinets, they're still functioning well or new ones aren't in the budget right now, paint is your friend here. Choose a color that complements the other elements in the room and get ready to go from "ow" to "wow!" Check out the next picture to see just how amazing this low-cost solution can look. Acquaint Yourself With Paint A fresh kitchen is just a few days' elbow grease away. Prep work and light, even coats are the keys to a successful paint job. Take the time to sand the surfaces until smooth, caulk as needed and try using pieces of a brown paper bag to "sand" between coats. It smooths and knocks down the high spots without dulling/removing as much paint as sandpaper so you don't have to be quite so careful. Ready For a Change This kitchen could be Anywhere, USA, and might remind you of yours. Let's say you have a bigger budget and it's time for some changes, but new cabinets aren't one of them. Repurposing them by changing their color and focusing on other areas that'll give you a big bang for your buck is a smart way to go. Look to the following picture for inspiration. More Bang For the Buck This kitchen's renewed darker cabinets, new backsplash and stainless steel appliances all combine to make it into a welcoming space with minimal hassle and mess. Keeping the same layout, cabinets and flooring made it possible to put the dollars into the higher-end appliances people expect these days and to add texture with the tile backsplash — all ideas you can consider if your kitchen's not to your taste. Not-So-Bright White This kitchen's beige/whitewashed cabinet color makes the white countertops and walls look dull. That isn't what anyone wants in a space that should be clean and fresh for cooking and eating. If you're ready for a change and crave color, check out the next picture to see how adding a new hue to just the cabinets transformed this kitchen. For Those Who Crave Color New molding along the top of the stock cabinets and N-HANCE® wood renewal in blue make the entire kitchen look unique, bright and white, even though the countertops and walls didn't change. When you're ready to update your kitchen cabinets, consider all your color options and don't be afraid to make a bold statement.


I will send you some pics…our project has taken over 4 months. The prep and spraying portion has been going on for a couple of months now. We had 12 cabinet doors to paint espresso and 27 cabinet doors and an island to paint cream + the actual cabinets. Needless to say, we are not done spraying yet. We still have the fronts of 15 cream doors to spray and 2 espresso to RE-spray

Assuming what you were describing is spraying a solvent (lacquer) based pre-catalyzed lacquer, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you never spray solvent-based lacquers in a home environment. That finish is meant to be sprayed in an explosion proof spray booth. It is not a consumer product, which explains your difficultly finding it. It is a miracle you did not have an explosion and burn both yourself and your house down. They’re are waterborne finishes on the market that would be safe and appropriate for spraying in a home environment. The thought of other people following this advice is scary.


Love your drive to get it right! I would as a professional warn you against using an Oil Based lacquer in your home. Most Oil based lacquers are called NITRO-Cellulose based lacquer’s, (same thing dynamite and Nitro Glycerin are made from) these products are highly explosive, the fumes and/or over spray can ignite easily. I assume that is what you used based on the strong fume comment. Waterborne lacquer’s use ammonia, about as strong as Windex with Ammonia, fast drying and with a fan the smell lasts about 8 hours and after 2-3 it is minimal. You can also roll the waterborne lacquer on the cabinet boxes and get great results to save any spraying in your home. The average kitchen boxes and gable sides can be completed in 3-4 hours. Make sure all grease is cleaned with TSP, ammonia will over time draw up any residual oil in woods and it will turn brown, (Ammonia likes to clean) There are several manufacturers that offer Waterborne lacquer’s. They are actually better in my opinion as you can get a high urethane (moisture resistance)content. You can also clear coat cabinets using Waterborne floor finish, the floor finish comes with Aluminum oxide (chemical resistance) Oils based lacquer has a very low moisture resistance compared to the Waterborne products. DULUX stores carry the X-Pert Brand. M.L. Campbell & Sherwin Williams also carry a water borne product now as well. M.L. Campbell is a Sherwin Williams owned Company so they have two brands. Nice looking Kitchen! Well done. Love your site, very informative and real world results for the DIY!
