Spraying kitchen cabinets

I want to do a "touchup" kitchen rehab before we sell our house this coming spring. That would include painting the cabinets and installing new hardware. I have an inexpensive Craftsman 3 horsepower 1 gallon compressor that gets 3.7 SCFM at 40 PSI. I was thinking about taking the cabinets down, since they weren't installed so well anyway, setting up a quick and dirty spray booth in the garage, and spraying them for a nice finish. They've already been brush painted once, and the brush strokes are visible. I would want to sand them first and prime them correctly, so spraying seems to be the best and quickest option.

Is there a spray gun that would allow me to use the compressor I own? I won't need to make extremely long passes. Most of the guns I've seen want at least 4 SCFM, but I don't know how critical that is if I'm only painting cabinets.

Thanks for the advice.
