Painting Cabinets – With Lacquer – Instead of Paint

Want a solid Color on your cabinets?  At home depot you can go buy Rustoleum Transformations – Guess What?  IT IS LATEX PAINT – Yeah its water based and easy to clean up with after you’re done – but you have to live with what you’ve done!cabinet1

Take for instance this cabinet job.  Starting with honey colored oak – we transformed it with factory grade, sprayed on lacquer – the customer wanted a solid color.  When you touch the surface of lacquered cabinets vs painted you would be shocked at the difference.

Lacquer is the only way to go – and you can get any color you want.  Most jobs take 2 – 3 days.

Pick Your Colors Wisely

Don’t pick yellow – if you hate yellow.  This house we completed003 the customer loved our work but said “its just that I hate yellow!”  She picked a color called canary island by Dunn Edwards.

Your best bet, if you are a little unsure about the color theme is to ask us first.  We will ask if you have seen a house color theme that you like.  We’ll suggest that you go with what you like personally.  Plus you also have to consider what the home owner’s association may say about it.

We are Armadillo Brothers and we want to be your painting contractor.  We serve the following cities in Arizona: Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Queen Creek and Scottsdale.  We paint interior, exterior,garage floors, cabinets – pretty much anything.
