RE: Cabinet Coat Paint? (Follow-Up #55)

moonshadow, you're so sweet! I love stumbling onto compliments given behind my back. :) Your door/trim photos are why I'll be using Cabinet Coat on my doors when I finally replace them.

trailrunner, here's a disgusting close-up of my cabinets before...

And the after...

You can see faint brushstrokes, which I love. The Benjamin Moore Satin Alkyd is incredibly forgiving paint, and I believe it would've self-leveled more if I laid the doors flat while painting and drying. I didn't want to encourage that, so I left them standing up.

A good painter should know of other ways to encourage brush strokes. Maybe have him experiment with some different (cheaper?) brushes. Make sure he doesn't add any Floetrol or anything like that.

Hey guys... thanks for the compliments. The paint brand is Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo Alkyd (which is oil-based), and the color is Bittersweet Chocolate.
