Oil over latex

laurellAugust 24, 2011

I have a few pieces of furniture that have been painted with a relatively thin coat of latex (no primer - don't ask) I intend to sand a wee bit, but not enough to take down the whole latex finish.

I'll be using Ben Moore Satin Impervo Oil that's leftover from painting my cabinets earlier this year. I am loving how sturdy the oil based paint is. I have an oil based stain blocking primer that I'll be using and then hitting with a few coats of the Satin Impervo.

I apologize for asking a question that has probably been answered before, but I haven't been able to find any good information on painting oil over latex. Most people want to do latex over existing oil.

first, scrap off loose paint, wipe with bleach, use an oil base primer (zinnser is my pick), caulk, fill nail holes, sand and clean, then apply your oil base paint.

I agree, oil base paint on cabinets is way better.
