Need input - urgent!
I posted the question on Paints but IME it moves much slower.
So, here is the question and forgive me if it is silly. Clearly, I have no experience in such matters.
I am having a stainless steel countertop with integrated sink made by a local metal shop for my clean-up sink area.
My carpenter has built a plywood substrate. The top will be covered by metal but parts of the bottom will be over cabinets, i.e., exposed. I want to apply some protection to the bottom side before I take it to the shop tomorrow morning. That means, I have less than 24 hours and need the finish to dry by 7 am. I cannot delay because it'll negatively impact my tight schedule.
The cabinets are painted. Should I use a regular paint, "milk paint" or white-wash for underneath of the countertop?
Which of the "big box" store paints (because only Home Depot, Lowes, and Walmart are open on Sunday) is of decent quality?
