Let's Paint Those Cabinets, Part 7


We’ve been talking about painting kitchen cabinets–we’ve covered the prep steps and talked about priming, now it’s time to talk about your finish paint. I’m Dan Hansen and this is a Minute at RepcoLite sponsored by Benjamin Moore.

Let’s start with Scuff-X from Benjamin Moore.  It was initially designed for high traffic areas in schools, hospitals, and so on . . . but we’ve seen a large number of our professional painting contractors choose Scuff-X for cabinets as well. It resists scuffing better titan anything we’ve ever seen and applies beautifully.

Advance from Benjamin Moore is another great choice. It’s a modified alkyd which means it has some of the application characteristics of an oil-based paint with soap and water clean up. Advance applies beautifully, almost like glass . . . and is perfect for cabinets.

A third option is Optima from RepcoLite. It’s another high end paint that will hold up well, but it’s going to price out a bit lower than the other options. 

When it’s time for you to choose, stop out at any RepcoLite and we’ll walk you through all the options and answer every question you’ve got. I’m Dan Hansen and that’s a minute at RepcoLite.
