spray painting cabinets

I want to spray paint kitchen cabinet doors. Maybe use a high gloss oil based paint?
It takes too long to brush..I did it before and took me 4 days to get the doors dry to put back on..Can this spray painting work just for the doors?

Sure but it's still going to take as long to dry.

Lots of questions...Are you going to spray outside, in a garage, or where? Overspray is the biggest problem when spraying. Oil paint? Oil paint dries slowly, big chances of collecting dust specks, etc, more chance of sags and runs, overspray is horrible. Head to Sherwin Williams and ask about which paint will do what you want. When I spray cabinet doors, I pound 2 - 6 penny finish nails in the ends of each door, close to the corner. Actually, I put them in the joint line of the rail and stile. I use 2 saw horses positioned so the nails rest on each saw horse and the door is suspended between. I spray the back, have a helper grab the nails at one end while I grab the nails on the other end. Together we flip the door so the front side is up and spray that. Then we take the door to the drying rack. This rack is made of 2 units made like this...cut 2 pieces of 2 x 4 at 12". Cut 1 piece of 1 x 2 at 4'. Screw each end of the 1 x 2 to the edge of one of the 2 x 4 pieces, centered, and at 90 degrees. This forms a bridge shape. Cut short pieces of 1 x 2 to fill in the rest of the 2 x 4 edge so the 2 x 4 is now 4 1/4" wide. Make at least 12 units like this or more. Set 2 of these units on the floor like the saw horses were set up when you sprayed. The door nails will strattle these units while it dries. You will get at least 2 doors on each pair. Stack another set on top of first 2 and repeat. As long as the doors are the same length you can continue. When you get to different size doors, make a new stack. I have sprayed in factories with roller conveyers and all kinds of racks and this is the most versitile and mobile method I have found. These racks work for long trim also. After you finish spraying the doors color putty the nail holes.
