How To Achieve The Best Results With Cabinet Painting

Cabinet painting refers to a special type of painting used in interior or exterior cabinetry. Typically, this type of painting is smaller than other types of cabinetry painting, as it is usually meant to decorate the surfaces of cabinets by painting them. Although they may appear tiny at first, they can become your favourite pieces of furniture once they are completed. If you have never tried your hand at cabinet painting before, there are several things that you should know about this project so you do not go wrong.You may find more information at Mooresville Cabinet Painting.

Description A cabinet painting is usually a fine bit of artwork, often no bigger than 2 feet in either size, but most often far smaller. The term is particularly used for paintings which show landscapes or full-length large-scale figures at a very small scale, instead of a portrait or life-sized object painted on a larger scale. Because most kitchen cabinets are fairly small in size, a majority of the cabinetry painting done is interior design, rather than exteriors. This means that people generally choose paintings which make best use of space in a room. You will find that the majority of kitchen cabinets in homes today are painted with lighter shades, making them perfect for a cabinet painting.

Techniques cabinet painting involves different types of paint, glazing and finishing techniques that you should be aware of if you want to get the best results. If you choose to paint with acrylics, you can get away with applying only a thin layer, allowing the colors to ‘rise’ on the surface of the cabinet. This kind of light application produces best results. However, if you choose urethane uppers, you must let them dry overnight and apply more paint if necessary. In addition, if you choose oil-based urethane, it is important to allow them to dry overnight, and once they have dried you should not spray them with water.
