Why hang cabinet doors?
Written By: Brian Lund ~ 4/3/2020

We do this to paint and dry cabinet doors vertically which accelerates painting, drying, and reduces the amount of space needed. Hanging allows us to spray all sides of the cabinet doors in one step. It is quicker and more efficient for us. The hanging doors are moved in and out of our onsite spray booth on hangers to the drying area and sanding area numerous times during the painting process. See process below:

  1. We label all doors and cabinets. We also label all hinges, shelves, etc before removing them.
  2. Sand cabinet doors thoroughly. We want to remove all imperfections from the cabinet door surface so the primer can adhere well.
  3. Clean well. We use a vacuum cleaner attachment and then a tack cloth
  4. Apply first coat of primer
  5. After primer has dried we again work on removing any additional imperfections with sanding, wood filler, and bondo
  6. Clean again same process
  7. Apply second coat of primer
  8. After primer has dried we again work on removing any additional imperfections by sanding
  9. Clean again same process
  10. Apply first coat of paint
  11. Once paint is completely dry lightly sand out any imperfections and fill joints with caulk
  12. Clean again same process
  13. Apply second coat of paint
  14. Once paint is completely dry lightly sand out any imperfections
  15. Apply third and final coat of paint. 16. Once the paint has been allowed to dry a minimum of 48 hours we can then start to rehang the cabinet doors.
