Cool thanks.

Where do you put the door numbers when you paint them? I put them in the hinge hole with a piece of tape over them.

What kind of sprayer is that?

Is the dry time with that dark red color longer that what you have experienced with the lighter colors. I have sprayed a ton of Breakthrough in lighter colors and only once with their stock color Wrought Iron black and it took forever for it to dry. Just wondering if mixed darks are the same with prolonged drying times. The lighter color drying times can't be beat. I have removed, sprayed, and re-installed the same day with the lighter colors. I like your set-up. It looks like your could spray a lot in a short time.

We start left to right beginning on the top
first door T-1 second door T-2
them A for top hing B second C third (if required)

the tape you see is just on the job when it's back at shop we use perment marker in hole with tape over it

each hings goes into a baggie marked to location this way each hing goes back in place with minimum adjustment

Sprayer is a Binks Comet 4/12 air assisted with a binks AA1500 gun
not a cheap set up but we paint 8-10 cabinets a months so it's paid itself off
a few times

may i add that my local PPG has a great repair shop that's a big help and they have helped me alot with maintaining it which is super low maintenance

i'll try to post more detail pic this week

Your right some colors take a little longer but we're usually working on two set at a time

spray one color, clean machine and spray next color

we can do 4-5 set in a day if needed at shop 2 coats including prep with 2 painters and 1 sprayer

Breakthrough is amazing we use it in occupied office repaint for doors & frames as the fast dry is great

I want a set up like that. I had one many years ago but never used it, I gave it away, I wish now I held onto it.

I'm impressed. Sweet setup. I like how the door doesn't move when u spray it, then twists around easily for the other side.

Part of that's the sprayer ... it's perfect for Painting furniture and cabinets
Also the metal hangers are the best they hold the weight and they don't break
like the wood hangers

One goods Secret is every now and then a little glue right at the swivel on the top of the hanger to stiffen it up a little bit ... that way you can move it but it don't just freely move

The holes go on the top of the cabinet door on the top cabinets
and on the bottom of the cabinet door on the bottom cabinets
you'll never see them but we still use spackling to fill it in and touch up

How big of a compressor? And how hard is it to clean up?

Looks like a sweet setup. I'd love to hear how you bid the cabinets. Not so much the price, but just the method. I'm trying to nail down a good way.

As far as price
per door ( we rate them 3 sizes ) drawers front ( size )
profile of doors, finish on doors makes a difference too

being space is valuable in cabinets the box part matches the door pretty good so if you bid the doors right you have money in it for the base

of course a lot of thing come into play but thats the basic starting point

With all the talk about cabinets painting lately i thought i would share what has worked for me

i know PT is a tough bunch to please so this may not work for you but it's helped me so if you like it hit the thanks button
and if not sorry for wasting your time

in my opinion one of the biggest thing to happen in the last 15 years was kitchen remodels ... seems when times where good every HO wanted to remodel kitchens & bath. It was the hottest thing to do back then, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and new cabinets stained dark

now 10 years later everyone loves their kitchen except their cabinets color so here in Central Fl the "new" thing is to paint them with white being the 1 st choice

So what has been the best way for be to tap into this market?

Buying a mailing list, not just a list of household with income of $$$ but being i have a warehouse in a industrial area i have a few cabinet manufacturers, install shop in my area and i bought a mailing list from them of past customers from 8 -12 years ago.

The perfect customer ... cabinets are still good, there are happy with their kitchen and don't want to go through a remodel but want to bring it up to date and painting is perfect for them ... for a couple of grand they get a new look without the hassle of a full remodel

with this list it's been easy for me to sell 8-10 jobs a month and growing fast
it's been the best mailing list i ever bought

i'll have to admit i had a relationship with the cabinet shops for a long time so getting the list was easy, if their installer damaged walls they would call me, if i needed a door repaired or hinges - bumpers i knew who to go too, if a ho was looking for cabinets i sent them their ... we refered each other out for years but check with some of you older cabinet shops in your area and see if they will sell you a list
so now we both have

Great idea that I'd never thought of. The simple ones are always the best.

Every so often PT throws up a lovely little nugget, this is one of them moments!!


Thanks a mill.

I love out of the box marketing strategies! Good job Jeff, that's an easy yet awesome idea I would never thought of doing.
