How to Create & Paint Shaker Cabinet Doors
Learn how to quickly and easily paint shaker cabinet doors using a Wagner FLEXiO 3000 paint sprayer to provide a smooth, fine finish without brush marks.
Change the look and feel of your kitchen by adding 1x4s to cabinet doors and drawer fronts in a shaker style.
Remove cabinet doors
Take down your cabinet doors, remove all hardware, and sand them down on to the bare wood front and back.
Add 1 x 4s
Use the pattern in the photo and cut the 1x4s to the needed lengths. Rip the 1x4 thickness in half with a table saw. Attach the 1x4s with wood glue and clamps. Allow time to fully dry.
Paint cabinet frames
Follow the same steps to paint the cabinet frames. Paint the cabinets inside and out, first with a coat of primer, then two coats of paint with your FLEXiO 3000 sprayer. Allow time to fully dry.
