Aura Paint Diaster - cabinets - please help!

Posted by sweetbabyjames5 (My Page) on

I chose to have my new cabinets sprayed with Aura. My painters hasn't use it before, but were comfortable trying it. The cabinet boxes and draw fronts look great, but the cabinet doors look awful. There are splotches and unevenness everywhere. I don't know what to do! My painters will be back tomorrow to spray the second coat on, and now I am
wondering if I should have gone with Waterborne Satin Impervo (did not want to use an oil due to whitness of paint - BM Chantilly
Lace.)I know their sprayer is airless, but I don't know what tip they are using. My finish is satin, which I read uses a different tip. Could this be the issue. I have looked at every cabinet door and not one looks perfect. Should I switch paint tomorrow? What do I do? Please help!!! I am ready to cry.

If the painter is any good, he(she) will fix the problem.
It may just need a second coat. BTW ,SI probably would have been a better choice, just for durability sake, but Aura is a fine paint.Did BM sell you on the Aura?

RE: Aura Paint Diaster - cabinets - please help!

Yes, guys at BM store said they prefer Aura to SI. I read through old posts on GW and saw fans of both. Painters hadn't used either but are pros and have painted cabs for numerous friends of mine - although oil always. Everything was sprayed inside my house except the cabinet doors. Those were sprayed outside. Could that be the issue?

No need to panic. It's just paint, which can be fixed.

A light sanding between coats and an even topcoat will make them beautiful again.

I used the Aura on my kitchen cabinets and it worked fantastically, that was 3 years ago and it looks like the day I painted it, I used brushes and roller. I wouldn't worry at all, very often the first coat of spray paint doesn't cover all the way. Wait until they do the second coat and all will be fine.
