Beautiful example of older oak cabinet refinished in Benjamin Moore, Cloud White
The external hinges were replaced to an inside hinge. Below is an example of the kind of hinge that was used.
Replacing those exposed exterior hinges on oak cabinets to inside hinges is now possible! You can even add soft close hinges. See example of close inside hinges on these old oak cabinets.

The key to good cabinet painting is prep, priming, the spray shop and experience in both spray finishing and onsite hand finishing. We always bonding primers and Benjamin Moore paint. Our finish is smooth and durable and the colours look amazing!
We are confident you will be pleasantly surprised. In fact most people say they knew they we going to look good but wow!
The key steps to a "good better best" paint adhesion starts with excellent cleaning, sanding & priming. We never use TSP and we always choose stain blocking wood primers and acrylic top coat paint for the job. We never refinish cabinets with pigment lacquer over old lacquer as it does not age well.
We always use high quality acrylic paint which is more flexible to alkyd and lacquer. Acrylic paint never yellows. See examples of bad lacquer finishes we are now repainting.
(Note: we are no longer painting cabinets with exposed hinges) See example

When painting honey oak cabinets white, we take extra steps to fill cracks and fill in the open grain.
NOTE: If door panels are floating (move inside the door frames), we won't caulk because caulking can eventually push out. Instead, we will often clean up these areas with tools so the paint looks clean between the panel and the frames. This process makes a huge difference in how well the cabinets look!
