My wife requested that I paint an old dresser of ours white. I stripped the
finish, sanded the piece, put on a coat of Kilz latez primer, and now I am
ready to paint it.
What type of paint should I use? Right now, I am planning to use latex
semi-gloss wall paint. Is there something better?
enamel. tinted lacquers or tinted polys such as Enduro
waterbornes, etc, etc... ANYTHING but WALL paint. :) Got an
but then again maybe you WANT to use easy-to-mar wall paint??

Oil based (alkyd) or acrylic. Typical water based has a lot of vinyl
polymer with a little acrylic. The acrylic latex should be 100% acrylic,
something like Sherwin Williams Pro Classic or the cheaper Classic 99 (has
only a little vinyl). Ideally, pigmented lacquer is the best but difficult
for the hobbyist to find and apply.
