Need some advice on kitchen repaint project
« on: March 11, 2017, 08:16 PM »
Hello everyone, I'm going to tackle the inlaws kitchen cabinets, I don't have a nice spraying system for now, I'm thinking of brushing and rolling. Any advice on roller brands and nap size would be appreciated. As well as a top grade semi gloss white tint paint that flows well for brushing and or rolling. BTW I do own a entry level earlex HV2901 with 1.0 1.5 and 2.5 tips. Not sure if it'll give a nice finish though because it blows pretty heavy with no air regulation on unit. I'm in the Los Angeles area and are near to Benjamin Moore/Sherwin Williams/Dunn Edwards paint stores. Thanks a bunch guys

I've had good results with Advance.  I've gone through a few gallons with rolling and tipping and it levels out well.  I ran into some orange peel issues at first, but I think they had more to do with my primer and prep than the paint itself. 

Give it a lot of time to dry between coats.   I've heard it can sag if you do more than one coat in a day.

Make sure your surface prep is impeccable, though.  I've really become convinced that paint highlights problems rather than covers them up.   [embarassed]

Incidentally, I also got some nice results on an ikea cabinet that I rolled with Aura and then topcoated with General Finishes High Performance in Semi Gloss.   Not mirror-finish, but an interesting look.   

Good luck,
Adam

I just am wrapping my in laws kitchen. I use SW Pro Classic and really like it. Lays out nice, fairly quick dry time. I use Purdy brushes and rollers and use their low nap for ultra smooth surface. Here are a few pics...

Cheers. Bryan.

That looks really good Bryan. What did you do for prep and prime prior to putting on the paint?

I am a big fan of using Zinsser BIN to prime with.  In the case of cabinet doors and drawers, if there are no caulk lines to use, it works fine.  If you paint BIN over caulk, it will look like eggshells when the wood moves.

Here are the basics:
  • Built the doors and drawer fronts out of maple
  • Panels are MDO, sanded and primed before assembly (Some of them I fully painted before assembly)
  • 2 coats average of BIN over all surfaces
  • light sand to smooth it out (320g)
  • 2 coats of ProClassic, light sand to knock any nubs down between coats
  • on the doors I used general finishes water based satin over to give it a bit more protection (this could be optional)
  • again, used Purdy rollers and brushes with the PC

I have a bunch of photos ready to go on a walk through and will post soon, but above are the highlights and hope it helps.

Cheers.  Bryan.
