kitchen cabinets - brush or spray

I need advice on our kitchen cabinet project. We want to paint the cabinets in a kitchen with about 20 doors and 15 drawers. The doors and drawer fronts have been removed and sanded and primed with Zinnser primer (we are using oil based paint).

Now where do we go from here? Our choices seem to be:

1. Do the entire jog with a brush.
2. Do the job with a hvlp sprayer.
3. Paint the frames with a brush and the doors with a sprayer.

What would the experts here recommend? Which method will give us our best result?

If we spray my wife is wanting to spray the doors in the dining room (which we are also remodeling. I think this is a bad idea.

Thanks for your help

Welcome to the forums Rick

IMO it is seldom a good idea to spray in an occupied dwelling. Overspray can and will go everywhere. If you spray in the dining room you should seal it off tightly from the rest of the house.

Spraying usually gives the best looking finish but a good job can be had by using the correct quality brush for th e job. I'd probably brush the cabinet frame and spray the doors at another location.
