I told you guys that my brother and his wife bought a new home. They have hired Cy to do some updating and remodeling in their home.
The first project was to paint their kitchen cabinets white.
Here is what the kitchen looked like just a week ago…
It is a large kitchen with lots of cabinet space.
My sister in law, Ande, and I have similar decorating tastes. So I was so excited when she said she wanted to paint her cabinets white! Painting the cabinets white will give her kitchen an instant, fresh, clean, and bright update.
Cy got to try out a new “toy” for this project. It was the HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish HVLP Sprayer.
When we got it in the mail, Cy pulled it out of the box and said, “Oh, I love the way this feels in my hand!” He really likes the design of this sprayer.
To prep the cabinets, Cy first cleaned the cabinets really well with a spray cleaner to remove any surface grease or oil from the cabinets.
Then he lightly sanded the surface of the cabinets with 120 grit sand paper and followed that up with a liquid deglosser.
Next, he primed the cabinets using Kilz spray primer (about 8 cans.)
Ande chose to paint her cabinets Benjamin Moore’s White Dove. I LOVE this color!
After removing the cabinet doors, Cy begin to spray the cabinets.
Cy color matched White Dove at Lowe’s using Olympic latex enamel paint in a satin finish.
He applied three coats of paint on these cabinets.
What Cy loved about this paint sprayer:
* it wasn’t overly heavy when filled with paint
* very easy to put together and start using
* pretty easy clean up
* sprayed evenly
* very little overspray
Cy thinks this is a great sprayer for furniture, cabinets, or trim work. He said it was a lot easier to work with than other sprayers he has used. He REALLY, genuinely loved this sprayer!
Just be sure to clean it really well between uses.
He did have to add a little water to his paint to thin it just a little, but after that, he said it was great.
Look how beautiful the cabinets turned out!!!
I love this color so much that I am thinking of using it on the exterior of my home.
These cabinets look like brand new now!
So much better already!
Next step in this kitchen renovation is to install the Ikea butcher block counter top.
I will share more pictures with you soon.
