Painting kitchen cabinets: Oil or Hybrid?

Posted by ra1823 (My Page) on

I wanted to use the Sherwin Williams hybrid to paint our old oak kitchen cabinets an off white. I was afraid the oil based paint would yellow and was told by SW that the hybrid wouldn't yellow. Our painter isn't familiar with it and wants to use oil based. Has anyone had experience with the color Creamy (from Sherwin Williams) in oil based and has it yellowed?

Any oil will yellow over time. If you're painter has not yet used waterborne or hybrid paints, it is time to find a new painter

Ok thanks so much! I'm going to call him this morning. That makes me feel so much better about my decision.

One more question! Does an oil based primer have to be used? The cabinets are oak. They're 26 years old. My husband has been cleaning them with deglosser and TSP. Thanks! Finally starting to remodel the kitchen and I'm scared about making big mistakes!

Not at all. Any QUALITY acrylic bonding primer will work fine but it has to be quality, Bullseye 123 would be a good one

question:
In the product info for Bullseye, it says specifically not to use TSP prior to using this product. Do you know why?

I prefer to use BIN on cabinets that have been previously stained and clear coated because it sticks the best to slick surfaces and will hold back any stains that old cabinets will probably have. TSP needs to be rinsed very well and if it's not, adhesion could be a problem. Dirtex is good enough for cabinet cleaning.
