After making a check list and gathering all of our supplies, we started with mixing of the paint which requires to be thinned out with water no more than 20%, this is so the paint can come out evenly through the spray gun. Once we mixed the paint , we poured it through a strainer to purify the paint and keep out any loose particles.
Matt then built a paint booth in our garage using a canopy tent and surronded it with plastic covers setting folding tables and a fan inside. There are many ways to diy a paint booth so please do plenty of research should you decided to do this type of project. As with any painting project, prepping is the key to a fabulous looking result . Okay moving along.......
Here's a fun fact- seeing Matt in a painters suit and his surgery mask was the highlight of the day! You would think he was preparing to do some type of surgery by the way he looks.
I had no part in the spraying process but coming from the Mister's personal experience he first did a couple of practice sprays on cardboard to get a rhythm going then started spraying side to side, laying the cabinets flat and holding the spray gun two feet away. He also sprayed the floor with water to keep the dust particles in the air down. We waited about 2 hours, flipped the doors and repeated the same steps. The same process was used for primer.
I prefer the spray paint method for various reasons- one you can do 10 cabinets in about 15 minutes or less and two- you achieve a flawless straight from the factory look. If your nit picky like I am, you won't be dissapointed with spray painting your kitchen cabinets!
Pss.... Pics of our kitchen will be revealed soon, pinky swear!
