"Okay- I decided to self-tackle kitchen cabinets. This paint is a great water soluble option to oil- but I have to say for the average homeowner - it requires a steady hand and quick action (neither of which I had when starting this project- sanded the first 4 doors probably 20 times due to my globs and brush marks). This paint dries extremely fast. High quality brush is a must- which helped my markings problem. The roller didn't work as well for the door fronts, but to speed up the process - I did roll the insides and they are okay.
This paint finishes like an oil - hard finish, with good gloss, but not obnoxious. I highly suggest spraying it if you have the money and/or equipment. It is thin, so I feel it would work well without needing lots of spray additives. And it would probably give a nice finish - similar to lacquer without the crazy brain-cell-killing odor.
HERE IS THE CATCH- I will never brush/roll this paint again over a large surface (will purchase oil- it is more workable with its molasses drying time). BUT, I will always buy this for trim. It is amazing how smooth it brushed onto the trim, and it covered great. I want to give it 5 stars - but for me, 4 is where it's at with my non-pro skill level."
