Video: How to paint cabinets (plus a giveaway)
Here in Pennsylvania, the fall weather has been absolute bliss … perfect for knocking out those lingering summer DIY projects before the weather turns cold. Today, I wanted to share with you my most recent outdoor-ish project as well as a giveaway you will not want to miss.
In my opinion, painting cabinets is a lot like plucking your eyebrows: Painful, detailed and risky. The end result can either be beautiful or scary-looking. Either way, you have to stare at them every day. 😉
I took a stab at cabinet painting with the master bathroom vanity redo and was happy with the results. However, my one big wish for that project was that I had a paint sprayer.
So I got braver with the garage cabinets and used a HomeRight® Finish Max Pro Fine Finish Sprayer to get the job done like a, well, pro.
As I mentioned earlier, painting cabinets is tricky business. In an effort to help those of you planning to tackle a project like this, I made a video tutorial showing, step by step, how I painted my cabinets. (Note: I used chalky-finish paint, so no primer was required for my project. If you’re using regular paint, you’ll simply have to prime the cabinets first before painting them. Primer can be used in the finish sprayer just as easily as paint.)
If I had an inside spray booth, free of potential gnat and leaf invasions, that would have been ideal. But hey, you work with what you’ve got, right?

I am really happy with how the cabinets turned out and how quickly the project got done using the finish sprayer.
To recap, here’s a before of that side of the garage:
