DIY: How to paint kitchen cabinets with a paint sprayer


If you  have builder grade kitchen cabinets  or just  plain  old white  cabinets that  need a makeover or freshening up, below  is  an easy  technique  that  can  be  done  in a weekend.

Tools  You  Will  Need:

Electric Sander
Paint  Sprayer
Spray can handle
Drop cloth
Dust Mask
Damp cloth
Drill
Drill bit
Tape Measure
Screwdriver
Wrench

Materials:

Ready made cabinets and knobs
Semi-gloss latex paint
Tinted  primer   (one quart)

Instructions:
  1. Sand Existing  Finish:    Put on dust mask, place  drop cloth  on floor and  use electric  sander to  remove   existing finish  from  cabinet.  Wipe cabinet with damp cloth.
  2. Pre-drill Holes for  Hardware:  Using  tape   measure  decide  where to  place  hardware and  mark with pencil then drill selected front door holes with drill. 
  3. Spray  Primer:  Add an even coat of primer  to  the  front  door of   cabinet  by using paint sprayer and  a quart of tinted primer.  
  4. Spray  on  Color:  Load paint  sprayer with  semi-gloss paint and  cover  exterior  and  interior  cabinet, making  sure  that  coverage  is even by moving paint sprayer from  left to right slowly  and  carefully.  Wait  about  three  hours for first coat  to dry then apply  second  coat  of  paint. 
  5. Attach Hardware:  After paint is dry, using screwdriver and  wrench add new hardware into pre-drilled holes.  
Tip:  Use a tinted primer for  a more  professional smooth  finish.
