Cabinet Refinishing

Cabinet Refinishing Service in Southern Wisconsin

Your Tired Cabinets Can Be Brought Back to Life!

With Colorwheel Painting at the helm, we can take a tired (and even failing) stained & finished cabinet system and bring it back to life with our cabinet refinishing service in Southeastern Wisconsin!  The biggest questions are:

  1.  What do we want this to look like?  The same as now or something different?
  2.  What CAN we make this look like?  Usually we can make it look the same, or darker, but going lighter is very cost prohibitive.
  3.  How much will this cost?  That varies tremendously, are we talking a few doors or the whole system?  A quote is definitely the way to go.
  4. What is your process?  This varies too.  In most refinishing cases, the exact technique will vary from door to door.  Some are worn and need a lot of attention.  Others simply need a clear coat.  And then there’s everything in-between.  The important part is:  it can be done!
  5. Where does this work happen?  The scope of the project will dictate best practice.  This is something we’d determine at the time of an estimate.  The boxes must be done in your home.  The doors and drawers can be handled in your home, but more than likely will be taken to our shop.

Not Sure what to Do?

Your best course of action is to contact us, and we’ll facilitate a meeting between you and our artist Sheryl.  She will come to your home to look at the cabinets and make suggestions.   Often, the condition of the cabinets themselves will dictate the best course of action and leave you with the following options:

  1. Use the Same Color, spot treat areas or do a complete overhaul
  2. Create a new, but DARKER color, which we call COLOR VARNISHING

Colorwheel has successfully done many projects of this nature, and we’d be happy to help with your cabinet finishing project too!  Please use the Contact Us form or call 414-708-6324 between 10am and 3pm weekdays.

And the Cost?

While it’s impossible to quote something like this via the internet, you’re looking at a one day minimum of $550 for onsite cabinet refinishing in Southeastern Wisconsin.  This typically allows for spot treatments of varying degrees.  A whole kitchen refinish will often be around $2700 to $3500.  Full color varnishing in a darker color can range from $2700 up to $7000 as a sliding scale related to the size of your kitchen.

A Time Lapse Example:

In the video below, the highly-talented Sheryl transforms this oak built-in bookcase and fireplace system from an original color to a rich, dark, espresso tone.  Above the fireplace gets primed and painted to add additional contrast.  Please feel free to forward through the video to see how the project goes!
