Day by Day Kitchen Renovation Progress

Here’s how we did it:

Day 1 –  The CRATE team set up plastic walls to protect the home from dust and paint over spray, and protected the path from the entry door to the kitchen. The appliances were removed along with everything attached to the cabinet boxes such as the cabinet doors, drawers, hinges, pulls, magnetic strikes, felt or rubber bumper pads, etc. The doors and drawers were taken to an off-site painting booth.

Days 2 & 3– During this second day, the team replaced the trim at the top of the cabinets. Since all the walls and the ceilings had been protected, our painters began preparing and priming the cabinets.  Prepping includes caulking, setting protruding or flush nails, filling nail holes, sanding wood surfaces, and cleaning thoroughly to remove dust or oils. Once the cabinets were prepped, the priming process began. Using a high-grade primer, every inch of the cabinets were primed.  This is the first (and perhaps most critical) step of creating a durable paint finish.

Day 4 – Now that the cabinets were clean, sanded, and beautifully-primed, the painters began the cabinet painting process.  Two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy paint in Magic Sail were applied to the thoroughly sanded and primed kitchen cabinets. This same priming and cabinet painting process was used on the doors and drawers, which are painted off-site in a climate-controlled paint booth for the highest possible quality.

Day 5 – The transformation then hit the home stretch with the installation of the freshly-painted cabinet doors and drawers. Brainerd 1-1/4″ beaded knobs and 3″ beaded pulls in Venetian bronze were installed on the freshly-painted cabinet doors and drawers, the homeowner’s appliances were installed and the entire project was cleaned.
