Announcement    Schnubs revolutionary cabinet paint allows you to modernize your kitchen, bathroom, or favorite piece of furniture with professional results. Schnubs’ unique composition provides a smooth, hard finish that adheres to wood, laminate, plastic, metal, concrete, veneer, and paper. Also, its flexible nature keeps it from chipping, cracking, or flaking, allowing your kitchen, bathroom, or furniture to look new for years to come.

We recommend you watch our brief training videos on each step of refinishing prior to beginning your project. If you haven’t done so already, you can find them on our Schnubs YouTube channel. (Go to www.youtube.com and search Schnubs)

Recommended items for your project using Schunbs Paint
Degreaser (dawn dish soap and water, Krud Kutter, TSP)
Green Scotch Pad
Razor
Rags or Paper Towels
220 grit sanding sponge
Painters tape
Paint brush - we like a Nylon/Polyester 2 inch angled brush
4 inch Roller frame
4 inch microfiber roller
Paint Tray
Painters Pyramid (for cabinet door fronts)


Step 1: Degreasing/Deglossing
Dawn dish soap mixed in water can be used for step, or you can purchase Krud Kutter or TSP from most hardware and paint stores, also Amazon. Spray the degreaser liberally over the entire surface to be painted. It’s best to do 1-2 doors at a time or 1 cabinet frame at a time, to keep it manageable. Scrub the surface vigorously with a green scotch pad to loosen dirt and grime. While the door is still wet, use the razor to scrape the gunk away. Hold the razor with the sharp edge perpendicular to the surface and scrape in the direction of the grain. After the surface has been adequately scraped, wipe dry with a rag or paper towel.

Step 2: Sanding (it’s not as bad as you think)
We highly recommend this step to ensure proper adhesion and overall smoothness of the finish. It’s not necessary to do heavy sanding with a power sander, but you can’t get away with not sanding at all if you want a smooth, quality end product. (bummer we know!) Use the sanding sponge to dull the surface that you just degreased by applying medium pressure while moving the sponge back and forth in the direction of the grain. The goal of this step is to simply remove the sheen or shine from the existing finish. No need to sand down to the wood. (phew!)

Step 3: Painting
To paint frames and sides of cabinets
Use painters tape to mask off the edges of your project (walls around cabinets and the inside edge of the face frame where it meets the cabinet box). Stir paint thoroughly (30-45 seconds) to ensure color is consistent. No priming required. Use the brush to paint edges and grooves first. Tip: first coat should be light. Be aware of drips, especially on edges and vertical areas. Then using the 4” roller, paint the remaining flat surfaces. Allow the paint to dry 30-45 minutes. Lightly sand with a 220 grit sanding sponge. (NOT a green scrub pad) Paint a second coat by brushing the edges and grooves first, then rolling the remaining surfaces. You will want to do a slightly heavier second coat so the paint will level and meld. Allow the final coat to dry for 2 hours before rehanging doors and drawer fronts.

To paint doors and fronts
Remove hinges and hardware from doors and any hardware from drawer fronts. (If you don’t know how to remove your drawer fronts, watch my training video on YouTube) Lay the doors and drawer fronts face down on a flat surface. We recommend using painter’s pyramids to place each door on for painting, but plastic cups or 1”x 1” strips of wood work too. Paint the backside of the door first. Use the brush to paint the edges and grooves. Tip: again the first coat should be light. Be aware of drips, especially on outer edges, and pools in the corners of the panel. Use the 4” roller to paint the flat surfaces. Allow the paint to dry for 30-45 minutes. Lightly sand with the black sanding sponge. Paint a second coat in the same manner as the first. Allow the second coat to dry 1 hour before flipping over to the front side. Paint the front side of the door using the same technique as the back: edges and grooves with the brush first, then roll flat surfaces. Sponge sand after first coat dries. Paint the second coat and allow it to dry 2 hours before putting hinges and hardware back on and re-hanging doors and drawer fronts.


NOTE: Dry time is based off ambient temperature of 75 degrees. If your workspace is cooler than that, you can expect longer dry time. If it’s hotter, then it will dry faster. DO NOT PAINT if colder than 60 degrees or hotter than 90 degrees. Colder than 60 degrees can cause the paint to congeal and warmer than 90 degrees will cause the paint to dry too quickly and risk bubbling.

Us in a nutshell

Kenneth's story
Growing up building cabinets, furniture, and then refinishing and painting anything I could in my dad's shop really gave me a passion for transforming old things into something new. A lot of furniture and cabinets have good bones, they just need some love. After going to school and graduating with an MBA, I started teaching Finance, Accounting, and Business at a small college in Southern Oregon. I had free time and a tiny spot in my garage, so I decided to start a side gig refinishing furniture. A few years later that part-time side gig turned into full-time work. Having sanded hundreds of hours, refinishing hundreds of pieces, and painting hundreds of cabinets and other furniture, I know how much work it is to do so. I wanted to create a way for people to get top quality finishes for their cabinets and furniture while doing it themselves and saving tons of money. It took me a couple years to develop a process, a product, and a package that delivers the best. I spent thousands of dollars and too many hours to count developing Schnubs so people that want to transform their outdated kitchens or revive an old piece of furniture scheduled for the dump can turn them into usable, gorgeous, updated center pieces to share with family and friends. Thanks for choosing Schnubs for your project. Happy painting!
