Step-by-Step MDF Cabinet Painting

So, how do we achieve this remarkable transformation? Let’s walk through our MDF cabinet painting process:

1. Prepping the Kitchen

We begin by prepping the kitchen for painting. As part of this process, cabinet doors are carefully removed and labeled for easy identification, ensuring a seamless reassembly after the painting process. And we continue by prepping the stationary items for painting, such as the island and cabinet side panels, ensuring comprehensive coverage throughout the kitchen.

2. Thorough Cleansing

Next comes the crucial step of thorough cleansing. We use a combination of TSP, degreaser, and detergent to remove any built-up grime and ensure a clean surface for painting.

3. Surface Preparation

To promote adhesion, we meticulously sand the cabinets doors with a dustless Festool sander, using 120-grit sandpaper to create the perfect canvas for our paint.

 4. Primer Application

Primer application is next on the agenda, and we opt for an oil or shellac-based primer to block tannins and ensure a smooth, long-lasting finish.

5. Final Sanding

After allowing the primer to cure, we perform a final sanding with 220-grit sandpaper, preparing the surface for the top coat application.

6. Painting Process

For the stationary items, we apply Benjamin Moore’s Scuff-X paint using a combination of brushes and rollers, ensuring a flawless finish that can stand up to everyday wear and tear.

 7. Off-Site Spray Painting

For the cabinet doors, we offer off-site spray painting, a process that typically takes up to ten days. This allows us to achieve a factory-quality finish with precision and efficiency.

 8. On-Site Spray Painting

However, we understand that time is of the essence for many of our clients. That’s why we also offer on-site spray painting for larger projects, ensuring minimal disruption to your daily routine.
