Overview

What do you do when you have a kitchen cabinet color stuck in the 90s, but you don’t have the budget to replace them? One solution is to paint your kitchen cabinets the desired color. This task can feel overwhelming and daunting, but with the FLEXiO 5000, the process is actually quite easy!

1

Remove cabinet doors & hardware and sand your doors

Remove the cabinet doors and hardware. I also make sure to have painter’s tape on hand to label each door front. This will save a ton of time at the end of the project from having to puzzle out which door goes with which frame. If you are changing the size of your handles, you will need to fill the hardware holes with wood filler and let dry.

Sand your doors. I used a fine sandpaper to give the primer something to grab onto.

Degrease cabinets

Degrease/ clean your cabinet doors. I used mineral spirits to create a clean surface.

Prime & Paint

Paint! Use one coat of primer specifically formulated for cabinets. Using the FLEXiO 5000 sprayer for this step was so easy.

Painting with a paint brush and roller on the cabinet doors would have taken all day. With the FLEXiO 5000, it took 20 minutes! Once the primer is dry, it’s time to paint! Make sure to use a paint formulated specifically for cabinets. Repeat this process on the cabinet frames.
