Painted kitchen cabinets=funky texture. HELP!
Hi, all. Resident lurker, first time poster! :)
Short story: we installed tall beadboard, including backsplash, in the kitchen. We also painted our builder grade oak (?) cabinets white (Valspar Snowcap White, semi gloss, with primer). As with all trim and other cabinets we've done, we sanded the original gloss down, cleaned thoroughly, primed with Kilz "stinky" stain cover primer, then used quality angled brushes and the small sponge rollers (Lowes...can't remember the brand) for cabinets. But, I can't get over the sticky texture of the paint! It doesn't look (or feel) smooth at all. I also read that we can't sand down semi gloss for a solid month lest we want an even worse texture. I don't know what to do...or what we did wrong. It just seems lumpy and even though my husband says no one will notice...YES, I will. That's all that matters.
Related: on some areas there appears to be a yellowing effect, as well. Now I know I'm a painter/DIY newbie, but this has me stumped.
Any and all advice/tips are welcome.
