kitchen cabinet painting questions

Kelly3307September 12, 2012

I am starting to get my plans together to start painting our kitchen cabinets and had a few questions.

First, paint. I am going back and forth between BM Waterborne Satin Impervo, SW Pro Classic, and Insl-X Cabinet Coat. Unfortunately the one I would prefer to use (Cabinet Coat) I don't think will work since we want to do a darker color. Are there any others I should consider? Can the BM or the SW be colormatched? I am wanting to use a Martha Stewart color (Ocean Floor).

Second, primer. I'm hearing good things about BM STIX primer. What about BIN, Bull's Eye, Kilz?

Lastly, deglosser/degreaser. I have heard NOT to use TSP because of adhesion issues later on. What is recommended?

Thanks for your help.

1) paint choice, any of them will work and can be matched,( don't know about CC but cannot imagine why not)
2)Bin, over kill, Kilz, NO( not a good bonding primer)
3)Tsp is fine IF you wash off the residue 2 or 3 times, Dirtex work well

I used Insl-X over BIN. Prime, sand with 200, paint 1 coat, sand with 200, paint again. Will look like you sprayed it.
