Do I need 2 coats of primer on kitchen cabinets?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We are painting the oak cabinets in our kitchen.
Here is what we have done so far:
removed the doors and hardware. Washed with tsp. sanded, all doors, cabinets, and drawers. We have alot of trim on these doors, so sanding was very time consuming.
I am still in the process of applying the first coat of primer, using BM fresh start.
We plan on painting the uppers with BM aura paint, and the lower's with BM regal pearl finish. (Base cabinets are going to be a dark color and it would not color match with aura).
Plan on sanding after primer, and in between paint coats.
I cannot see any grain through the first coat of primer, so my question is, do I need a second coat of primer?
It would save me at least 2 days of painting if one coat was sufficient. Maybe an expert here can explain why I need, or do not need the second coat.
Thanks so much for your advice.
