We are tackling painting our kitchen cabinets this weekend. Is it necessary to use cabinet paint? Or can we use some trim paint we have on hand? I’ve heard mixed instruction on sanding the cabinets or not. What’s the best steps to take?
Prep is the most important part to a long lasting durable paint finish. Sand everything, use two coats of BIN shellac based primer, sand, paint two coats of quality paint like Benjamin Moore Advance or Sherwin Williams Emerald Urethane and lightly sand between each coat. No clear coat needed. My cabinets are flawless, look professionally done, and they are 100% perfect without a single chip or scratch after 6+ years of heavy abuse.
