Any thoughts on a good paint to repaint kitchen cabints?
They are painted in oil right now. Looking for a statan finish,
very durable, some what fast drying and waterborne. The cabinets
can either be sprayed or hand painted.
I ran out of answers when you said waterborne. We believe in the old
fashioned durability of oil based enamel. My mother-in-law's home has enamel
work that looks like new after 35 years. We did our kitchen cabinets with
similar finish about 6 years ago.
I would urge you to go oil for durability. I have used Benjamin Moore
products with great results. A painter friend of mine uses MAB paints and
swears by them. Stay away from the "Mega Low Mart" products. Support your
local small business. Auto paints are another option that would give you a
level of durability not to be found in house paints.
I always use Melamine paint to paint my MDF furniture and kitchen
cabinet doors. It's very durable and yields a low gloss surface. I use
rollers but it can also be sprayed if you have a spray cabin. It isn't
waterborne though, doesn't dry fast and you need at least 3 coats.
