We recently refinished filing cabinets for a commercial office space with electrostatic spray painting. We turned them from an old, white finish to a satin black.
Electrostatic Spray Painting vs Powder Coating
This process allows us to paint things that cannot be easily powder coated, whether it’s because there are plastic parts or if it can’t be brought to our warehouse.
How It’s Done!
Electrostatic spray painting is all about the prep work. We carefully clean, sand, and mask off all pieces. We use the same process for for filing cabinets like these ones or a window in your apartment.
When everything is ready for painting, we use a special spray gun to apply a two-part epoxy paint that dries harder than anything a roll-on paint can manage.

This vintage table was an unusual project. Most of the time, we fix old scratches and discoloration to refurbish furniture. This project was an attempt to preserve those imperfections.
The old layer of paint was flaking off, which is not something you want with a kitchen table. We sandblasted that layer away so our client could see the bare metal.
They loved the industrial beat-up look of the surface. They decided they wanted a clear coat that protects the table while preserving the vintage look.
The matte clear top coat brought out some interesting details. The finish also makes sure the table is protected for daily use in a family home.

New fabrications will develop rust if they are not treated promptly and correctly. First, we sandblast the piece to remove mill scale, oil, and rust from the welding process. We then evenly apply the powder to the metal surface of the fabrication. Finally, the piece goes into the oven for the powder to gel into a smooth, even surface for a long lasting, rust preventing finish.
These metal wave stands posed an interesting challenge because of the complexity of the shape. But no matter what the difficulty, our skilled technicians pay attention to the finer details to ensure a high-quality powder coat.
