EcoFPE over oil-based-painted cabinets: 2 coats too thick?

smleeSeptember 21, 2010

I plan to paint kitchen cabinets with white FPE eco on my painted cabinets. The cabinets have white color oil-based paint on them from the previous owner.

Any recommendations on primer? FPEeco is a modified oil paint which is water thinnable (I don't really know what all that extra info)

I plan to clean, sand, wipe, prime then add a coat of paint. Should I do a second coat of paint? Some recommend just one coat with oil based paints.

I'm worried that primer and 2 coats of paint on previously-painted cabinets will add so much added dimension that the doors will not close without being remilled. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
