Painting kitchen cabinet doors.

We have a project for this summer and that is to paint our kitchen cabinet. We want to start with the doors first but would like what kind of paint we should use. We have an air compressor and a gun sprayer. Any pointer is appreciated. Thanks.

Just a suggestion--take a door/drawer off, take to a paint specialty store or reputable building supply store (as opposed to a big-box--L, HD, etc---if you can even find someone to ask in one of those they won't know anything worthwhile and will probably get PO'd you bothered them). My preference is Sherwin-Williams--they have good material, know what they are doing, and are close enough to be handy. Will normally walk you through the whole process from start to finish (no pun intended), help you with the list of tools, materials and supplies you need, etc. God luck!

I use Sherwin Williams from the Sherwin Williams store. It will cost you more but worth it.

I have painted with an air sprayer before but it makes a mess. You also have to thin the paint which isn't ideal. When I spray, I use an airless now. It would be worth renting an airless to do it. With the airless, you don't thin and can finish in one coat if you have the doors laying down and two coats on the cabinets. Search in the diy forum for my kitchen remodel and whisky bar build to see the cabinets I painted.

You could also use the smooth surface rollers but spraying gives the best finish.

More than likely they currently have oil based paint on them. So you can not use latex unless you sand and prime them with an oil based primer.

I just found out about Acrylic Alkyd paint. It is water based, goes on like oil, hardens like oil, but will not yellow like oil. I called bear and they said it can be put on over oil with no issues.

Airless would be best but a foam roller gives good results.

Thanks all. Has anyone used Harbor Freight Krause & Becker airless sprayer? How good is it? It has several good reviews!

clean and sand them good before you do anything, make the painting part easier. I prefer oil based paint to water on wood work i can get a smoother finish. Like earlier post go to a sherwin williams or regular painters store for materials and info not a box store. If they are a stained finish now prime first and let dry, sand and finish.
good luck

Rather than sanding consider using a liquid de-glosser.
Lots easier than sanding and can get to places sanding can't.

I used this for the first time last month refinishing my banister. Worked great and doesn't make the mess sanding does. I didn't paint though...went with gel stain and a couple top coats of polyacrylic. I'm thinking about doing my cabinets the same way.
