Cabinet Refinishing & Painting
Questioning whether or not you want to refinish, paint or replace your cabinetry? Valley to Mountain Home Improvements can guide you through the process with ease and the comfort of knowing you made a good decision. We get it, new cabinets are expensive! The low quality cabinets may be cheap, but are considered junk by many.
So, what do you do if you have decent cabinets, do not want to do a remodel, but are looking for a dramatic change? You can have them painted! This is the quickest solution with the fastest results.
Will paint hold up? Yes, today’s high-end water based paints from Benjamin Moore, General Finishes or Sherwin Williams will last for a decently long time. The great thing is they can be touched up if damage or wear were to ever happen. Let’s look into the process and what we offer!
Bland Oak Cabinets Transformed with Online Gray Paint
This kitchen had oak cabinets and doors, along with a failing clear coat finish. We sanded them down and painted them with a color called Online Gray. Then we used cabinet grade Benjamin Moore paint for this job. You can see how the cabinets match the existing backsplash perfectly and now compliment the space! This job was completed in two weeks.
Let us do the work for you!
The process of painting kitchen cabinets takes effort, consistency, time, patience and the correct tools for the job. We don’t just slap paint on and call it a day, there’s more to it than that!
Our team starts by removing all hardware, hinges, slides, drawers, cabinet doors, etc. Then we strip down the paint or stain on your existing cabinetry. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT DUST! We use quality dust extractors and high end sanders to remove the existing finish. This does two things; makes the process go faster and keeps dust from traveling throughout your home.
Next we apply a primer coat of shellac or bonding primer depending on final color, type of wood and stain from the previous finish. Once dried that gets lightly scuffed, then either a second coat is applied or the first coat of paint is applied. When that cures, we lightly scuff again and apply your final coat of paint.
This process in your kitchen usually takes 2-4 days depending on the size of job and type of finish. Meanwhile, we are working on your cabinet doors and drawer fronts in our shop. These take a little longer to finish due to both sides being primed and painted while also allowing time for the paint to fully dry before being transported.
About 6-12 days after the start of the job, the doors will be re-hung and your kitchen will be assembled back together. And just like that, your kitchen will be transformed! Check out the options down below for all upgrades!
Cabinets Painted White
This customer was very happy with how much larger her kitchen looked after we completed our work. We used Benjamin Moore advanced satin off-white paint. Our team painted all of the face frames and cabinets on-site. We spray finished the doors in our shop. Once the doors were cured, we reinstalled them along with all new hardware.

Lighten Up Your Space
This kitchen was transformed with much more than paint. First we painted the cabinets with General Finishes Antique White with a satin clear coat. We also re-laminated the countertops onsite and produced a new sink countertop in the shop.
The old garbage disposal was removed and we built a custom cabinet with garbage pullouts and a matching door. Shrinking the cabinet above the stove for more clearance when cooking was another improvement we completed.
To lighten this space up even further, we removed the old wall paneling. Then we fixed the sheetrock and painted the walls.

Distressed Black Island Kitchen Refinishing
Here we designed new back and side panels for this island to completely transform it. The sides and backs were constructed of solid wood with custom milled bead board panels in a distressed black finish. Then we refinished the drawers and face of the island to match. Finally we added base moulding to complete the look.
Dark Brown Stain Painted Antique White
This kitchen we refinished in an Antique White by General Finishes. It has a satin clear topcoat providing a surface that is easier to clean than regular paint. However, this is a 5-7 coat process on your cabinets compared to a cabinet paint by Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams. This kitchen refinishing process was a success.
