What We Do
Our custom wood painting & refinishing provides cabinetry with a fresh & high quality finish without having to remove counters or boxes. We deliver a superior finish that can marry any cabinets to the countertop, creating a stunning space.
How We Do It
We have 6 people working on every kitchen and in-home work time is 2 - 3 days. We bubble up the space, cover everything, and all dust & smell goes outside. The doors and drawer fronts are detached and painted in a professional style spray booth, and then put back in place after the kitchen boxes and frames are completed.

What Our Customers Are Saying
"We had our cherry cabinets painted white by Frankenstein Refinishing. The quality of work was outstanding, we are extremely pleased. Our kitchen looks state of the art. Jim was very responsive and his crew was skilled and professional. Great to work with."
"If you are thinking of painting your cabinets, look no further. We updated ours from a wood to a white and they look like brand new cabinets and at the fraction of the cost it would have taken to actually replace them. Jim’s work is absolutely wonderful. He is a true professional and him and his crew are efficient. We have gotten so many compliments on the cabinets. I highly recommend Jim and Frankenstein refinishing!"
"I’ve hired Jim to paint a client’s kitchen 6 years ago and have never used anyone else since. He just completed a large, 3 room kitchen in Wellesley for me. He is AMAZING! Hire Jim. There is no one better. His finished product rivals factory finishes. His customers service is superb. His attention to detail is consistent . He is a true perfectionist."
"We have received so many compliments on our cabinets! Jim uses a special paint that is equivalent to, if not better than a factory finish, and believe me it's ABSOLUTELY worth the price. If we ever decide to move and want to repaint cabinets, I know that Frankenstein will be my only call. Jim was fantastic to work with, very professional and attentive, and even came back at a later date to do touch ups. I can't recommend Frankenstein enough. If you want to redo your cabinets and make them look like new (if not better than new) your search ends here."
"If you're looking to have your cabinets painted or refinished, look no further. Jim and his team painted our cherry cabinets (to white) at our house 2 years ago and we just hired them again to paint cabinets in our new house. Their work is fast (3-4 days), clean (very minimal dust), and the cabinets look like they came right out of the factory -- no paint streaks, no imperfections. They are finished with a beautiful white satin-like lacquer that is so smooth. You won't be disappointed with their work -- don't call anyone else!"
"My kitchen was a high-quality cherry and in good condition but wanted the glamorous look of white cabinets. Jim showed us a sample of his work and we were surprised at how beautiful our kitchen could potentially look. The finish is a smooth, hard lacquer with a soft gorgeous sheen. Wendel and Javier worked very hard to be detailed yet the process was very quick...only about 3-4 days. Our kitchen is so glamorous and beautiful, people are amazed at the transformation! I would highly recommend Frankenstein again and again!"
