MATA HARI CABINET REPAINT

Materials Used: Pre-Mixed Color Matched Paint except for black - Sandpaper - Painter's Tape - HVLP Paint Sprayer

                                                    Paint Buckets - Paint Mixers - Viscosity Calibrator..

 

GAME TO BE STENCILED: CABINET WAS NOT TOO BAD BUT I WANTED IT TO LOOK PERFECT

NOTE: SOMEONE PAINTED THE BORDER OF THE HEAD THE WRONG COLOR.....

BACK OF GAME IS A LITTLE ROUGH AND WILL APPRECIATE THE NEW PAINT JOB.

LIKE I SAID. CABINET IS NOT TOO BAD BUT DOES HAVE SOME SCRAPES HERE AND THERE.

CABINET IS SANDED SMOOTH AND GAME IS MASKED OFF WITH PAINTER'S TAPE

OTHER SIDE IS SANDED SMOOTH AND MASKED OFF WITH PAINTER'S TAPE

COIN DOOR - PLUNGER REMOVED.. CABINET SANDED AND MASKED OFF WITH PAINTER'S TAPE

KILZ HAS EXCELLENT PAINT COVERAGE. NO NEED TO STRIP THE ORIGINAL PAINT BECAUSE KILZ WILL

COVER IT PERFECTLY. I HAD TO THIN WITH PAINT THINNER TO THE CORRECT VISCOSITY SO IT WOULD

SPRAY THROUGH MY HVLP SPRAYER.

LOOK HOW NICE THE KILZ PRIMER COVERS THE SMOOTH SURFACE.

AFTER LETTING THE KILZ DRY COMPLETELY ( 2 HOURS ), I REPAIRED ALL CABINET DEFECTS WITH WOOD FILLER.

I LET THE WOOD FILLER DRY OVERNIGHT.
