"9 years ago - yes 9 years it has been since I painted our kitchens cabinets with this paint. We have a huge kitchen and the cabinets were not real wood and where the paint had worn off, swelling had occurred. We could not afford all new cabinets. I removed all doors and drawer fronts, I sanded meticulously, leveling the swelling, also just taking off the very sharp corners (just a fraction - changes them from looking cheap to better quality and paint is less likely to wear off those sharp corners). I then sprayed a coat of oil based primer and started the paint job. Using a Purdy brush, I brushed all the "indents" in the cabinets ensuring I carefully feathered the edges and used a foam roller to complete the rest of the surface. I did all backs first then all fronts - twice - 2 coats. I sprayed all the brass exposed hinges Oil rubbed bronze and bought new oil rubbed bronze knobs. I caulked and did the same to the carcasses. It was a big effort but I took the kitchen a section at a time and methodically worked round it. The result was the look of brand new cabinets - totally transformed the kitchen.
This effort was made so much easier by this amazing paint. It did need two coats but it looks 100% professionally done. The finish is amazing, very hard wearing, zero chipping, zero stickiness and zero application marks. It literally looks like it was sprayed. I have had numerous people ask what paint I used and how I did it.
About 3 years ago, using the same small foam roller I touched up a couple very small places where I could see the paint was wearing thin, like by the knob of a frequently used cabinet and even the touch up was easy and amazingly didn't show. I cannot understand any negative reviews on this paint. The paint is consistent - the painter is not - I believe that is the answer.
I highly recommend this paint!"
