Default Tiny roll top door

Painting some cabinets and they have a fixed in place roll top door covering what's a built in bread box. I have no idea how to go about painting this thing without having it rubbing, getting into all the grooves, keeping it moving so the slats don't get stuck together, etc.

Picture wee little slats like you'd see on an old roll top desk. About 1/2" wide.

Such a tiny little thing has become a conundrum. There is no option of removing it that I can see and I'm not even sure if that'd help.

No, spraying isn't an option.

Any thoughts?

We did a couple last year. All I could think of was brush it and every few minutes go and move the door up and down so it wouldn't stick. It really wasn't fun.

That's all I've been able to come up with as well. Ugh.

Rattle can? Is that technically the definition of spraying?

I just painted a kitchen this past week that had one. The HO took it off before I got there so I can paint the wall behind it. I would have told him not to take it out but he didnt ask. That one was screwed on the bottom of the upper cabinets and glued to the dry wall where the two sides of the bread box butted up to the wall. He tor the dry wall down to the brown paper when he did it . If its glued on you will probably make more work if you take it out. Nobody wants that to happen.If its just screwed on and not glued to the dry wall you might be able to take it out and spray it with an aerosol can. Check it out first so my suggestion does not cause more work for you.

Can you thin your paint down enough to spray through one of those Preval spray bombs? I've used them various times in similar situations with success....

Run some petroleum jelly down the cracks with a Q-tip. Be sure to only get it in the cracks. Paint it, let it dry, and clean out the cracks.

Sorry, I can offer no other suggestions beyond what's been posted. We're iced in and waiting for things to thaw enough to venture out to work.
