About This Project:
Assessment: These homeowners were in search of a way to freshen up their open living space and decided to paint over their existing wood cabinets.
Advice: The gloss finish on these high-quality cabinets would require a five-step process to ensure a professional job. After masking off the kitchen and creating a spraying station in the homeowner’s garage, LIME lightly feather sanded the gloss finish on the cabinets to offer an adherable surface for the paint products. Then we caulked the seams of the cabinet doors to ensure a professional and flat surface, preventing unsightly paint build-up. Due to the smooth and semi-slippery surface of the wood, we used Stix Bonding primer to create a surface that the topcoat paint would adhere to. This primer has excellent bonding properties to slick surfaces and was ideal for this project. Then LIME utilized Proclassic trim and door paint as the topcoat. This coating is an enamel/water-based coating that dries extremely hard to resist the wear and tear that cabinets receive, all while leaving a durable gloss sheen. LIME took it one step further to apply a durable clear coat to not only seal the paint but to also add another layer of durability.
