I have painted a good amount of furniture and my biggest complaint is that the paint often chips. I have tried many different primers and approaches to painting but the end result is often the same...the paint chips.
And then I came accross this blog and decided to go ahead and try the bonding primer. What did I have to lose, right? I chose Valspar because I buy my pain from Lowe's.
The process of painting the cabinets went like this:
- clean cabinets
- lightly sand the surpface with a 220 grit sand paper
- wipe clean
- paint with bonding primer using a small foam roller to avoid brush marks
- let dry (dries fast)
- 2nd coat
- and paint my white satin finish paint on the cabinets (2 coats)
