Painting New Cabinets


Looking at building some new bathroom vanities, but not sure on how to finish them. I'm going to have clear coat on all the interior of the boxes and spray the face frames and doors and drawers white. Just not sure on how to apply these finishes. What. Type of sprayers should I use?

Many spraying options out there. I use an hvlp for dye stains and clear coats. For paint I use an airless. But that's just me.

Re: Painting New Cabinets


Use Kem Aqua tinted for your color coat, untainted for your clear coat. Spray through an HVLP.

Paint can be shot through an HVLP, just not the best method.

Kem Aqua does spray nice and is pretty durable. I have only used the white. I would like to try the clear.

Re: Painting New Cabinets


What equipment do you already have, what setup, how much spraying experience, what budget for equipment (just for occasional jobs?).

Re: Painting New Cabinets


It is 1/2" EMT. The rack uprights are built as a sandwich so you do not have to drill holes. 1/2" or 3/4" plywood sides 4" deep. 3/4" plywood spacers, between the sides, 4"x3" spaced 3/4". You can slide the EMT into the pocket this creates. If you need more room between the supports, just slide some out.

I'm a also licensed electrician from the Chicago land area. EMT is something I always have.
