Priming Cabinetry

snookums2November 16, 2012

I primed some cabinetry with Kilz Original oil-based primer which is probably over 30 days ago, maybe 6 weeks and I should be painting it over the next week or so. I wasn't aware of the 30 day mark when I started it. Is it critical to re-prime the wood? It is very smooth. Is sanding for tooth enough? If I re-prime, I should resand? It sticks well to itself?

I will be using Aura for the finish coats. I believe that is a self-priming product.

Lightly, I said, lightly sand, clean up the dust very well and paint away

Thanks. This seems to be the consensus among people I've asked. I might re-prime the exterior just to be safe (never want to have to redo this again!). But I'll only sand the rest and paint.
