Question Finding somone to paint unfinished cabinet doors.

I found a cabinet door (wood worker) maker that sells very nice cabinet doors very inexpensively. The probalem I am having is finding someon that will paint these doors for me at a resonable price. My idea is to have the doors painted and paint the boxes myself. Every one I talk to wants an outrageous amount. Almost the same money as if they were refinishing my old doors. These guys want to charge me the same price of refinishing. I would talk to an interior painter, but I am worried about the qualiy. Any ideas or is there a place I can send them out to be painted? I am in the Chicago area.

All the Best.

Welcome to the forums!

Any decent painter can paint the cabinet doors. Small jobs will often cost more [per door] than a bigger job.

Why not just do it yourself and be assured that the best materials are used, that's the whole point of this forum!

I agree with Marq. It's not like you're painting the whole house or will have the living quarter upset to the point that you can't live in it. You're painting a piece of wood. Just brush back and forth. And use expensive paint and brushes for quality work. Or is there something more that we should know about?

What kind of wood - please tell me you're not painting a good wood like oak.
