Painting cabinets - paint finish/gloss
This weekend's project is replacing my sink faucet and countertop - next weekend (or, whenever I finish the above) is to paint the cabinets. I have found some great advice on this forum in past posts on how to prep, what primer to use, etc.
In my case, the cabinets - which are original from 1980 not nice quality wood very dark brown - have already been painted at least twice once a peachy color, then recently a poorly done job of white which is now peeling everywhere. So I will be sanding, priming and then painting.
My question is - what finish paint generally looks best for cabinets? Semi-glass seems like it will be too shiny, but satin may be not glossy enough? With white I need to be able to wipe down spills and dirt easily, I don't want to have to scrub and end up damaging paint. What did you use and what do you like or not like about the finish?
