Kitchen Cabinet Painting & Refinishing

A unique and inexpensive way to update your kitchen cabinets.

Hi, I am Jay Barnhart and I am here to “show you step by step how you can update, design and restore your kitchen cabinets.

Restoration is the best way

I’ll begin by telling you it’s so very fitting for your budget because restoration is the least expensive way you can make your kitchen brand new!  It will look like you gutted it all and then began all over again without actually doing it!

Roll and Brush Verses Spraying. The best way?

Today everyone does everything the fast way.  Speed is not the best way. If you want them to last you don’t want to spray them. Oh spraying looks great for a year or two. When you spray, the paint is thinned (watered down) It loses the protection that you really want to have. So it chips, it marks and it does not last. Brushing is the best way, don’t worry about the brush marks, I will show you a techniques so there aren’t any. You will love the outcome. When they are done, they will be washable, they will not chip, and they will last a very long time. Kind of worry free.

Following Jay was a breeze, she was so excited when telling me about how to use colored stain on my cabinets and had amazing insight and details. I have experience with refinishing but without studying up on it or having major experience, I would have never obtained the tips and tricks that she had in her back pocket! Her years of experience shows in her passion and in her work and the outcome of my projects.

I have used the techniques that she has taught me for my wood projects. Her step by step was easy to follow and by following her gave me the confidence I needed. Projects that we did together were of higher quality than the normal paint jobs.

I started working for Jay as a young neighborhood kid looking for extra summer spending money. From Day 1, there was a standard of excellence that was swiftly established and nothing less would do. Between her attention to detail, and step by step processes, I’ve been able to better organize my own jobs, prioritizing and properly creating best work practices that have helped me in every other field I’ve been a part of in my adult life. One can be assured that learning under Jay means a few of the following words: Prompt Dedicated Efficiency without detriment to Quality PASSION: you can see the love that’s been put into the work and the end result speaks highly for itself.

Jay Barnhart trained me beginning with the basics. I learned the tedious processes that Jay developed with prepping and painting not realizing all the detailed work and timely thinking that all went into the restoration of woodwork. Jay was a phenomenal mentor. but the main thing that insured my success was to make sure that I learned the upmost quality to every handmade technique implemented to each clients home ensuring the most quality work for our client. This all helped build my appreciation that Jay has for the art.. The end result was witnessing clients faces as their kitchen transformed into their new kitchen they designed themselves.
