Choose a cabinet with smooth, flat fronts. Less ornamentation will allow for an easier paint job, and avoid paint bubbling on uneven surfaces.
Sand Existing Finish
Wear a dust mask, place the drop cloth around the cabinet, and use an electric sander to remove the finish. When done, wipe it down with your damp cloth.
Pre-drill Holes for Hardware
Measure with your tape to determine where to drill. Mark with a pencil, then drill the holes
Wearing your dust mask, use the paint sprayer and tinted primer to add an even coat to the cabinet and door fronts
With your semigloss or high-gloss paint, load the sprayer and add the first coat to the cabinet, ensuring an even interior and exterior coverage. Start at the top, and spray horizontally, moving down as you spray. Wait about 3 hours in between coats to ensure proper curing.
Once the paint is dry, attach the hardware, and enjoy your brand new cabinet!
