Painted Cabinets - Let's talk...
I'm very confused about this subject. Painted cabinets from retailers will have a hard finish - so the doors/drawers should have a decent life span before chipping etc. Is this correct?
If one is going to paint (think White Shaker) themselves, or hire it out, can the finish be the same? Or will these always have a shorter life span?
Like many here, we are seriously considering IKEA boxes and doors/drawers from someone else (Scherr's for example). So these will not have been painted before. Can I expect a quality finish that will last or am I kidding myself?
Edited to add that that the only thing I am 100% sure of is the color : Benjamin Moore White Dove. :-)
