Refacing Cabinet Doors: Work Magic with Spray Paint

By Karin Mangan

Using spray paint is a great and inexpensive method for refacing cabinet doors. Here are some steps to follow.

  1. Take down your cabinet doors and remove the hardware. Sand them well with some fine grit paper to remove the old finish and create a surface the paint can stick to, and then clean the doors as well as you can. Give them a whole day to dry.
  2. Use a safety mask and work in a well-ventilated area.
  3. Cover your work space with paper or sheets so that some misguided spray won't cause a problem.
  4. Lean the door against the wall or use some supports, and then apply some spray-on primer from about a foot away to get an even coat. Spray every surface of the door, and then allow it to dry for a half hour.
  5. When the primer is dry, it's time to apply the paint. To get an even layer, move the can in a horizontal direction back and forth as you make your way down the length of the door. Allow time to dry, and then add another coat.
  6. Apply a coat of spray-on finish for extra protection and aesthetics.
  7. Let the newly painted doors dry overnight.
  8. Hardware should be cleaned for that extra touch. First soak them in hot soapy water and then give them a good polish. Or, depending on the look you want, you can also paint the hinges and handles.
  9. Re-attach the finished doors. Refacing your cabinet doors with a little spray paint will give you suprisingly great results, and no one will see anything but a beautiful, modern kitchen. Genius.
