ACE Cabinet, Door & Trim Paint


I'm about to use Ace Cabinet, Door & Trim paint on my oak bathroom vanity. For those of you who have used it, should I use a brush or roller on large areas? After reading that I only have about 30 seconds to 1 minute max to play with this paint, I was worried about how to cover the side of the vanity, which goes from floor to ceiling, with just a brush. If a roller, what type, foam or low nap? I appreciate any tips.

Also, how long should paint be allowed to cure before putting hardware back on and re-hanging doors?

I have not used Ace paint in a while, but, I do use SW's Proclassic Waterbourne. I often use a "whizz" roller........it's a small, 4-6 inch mini-roller that holds lots of paint. If you don't want the orange peel look on the cabinets, roll on the paint and then back brush it. The paint will level out nicely. If you're not confident that you are speedy enough to keep the paint from tacking up on you, add some Floetrol or other extender to the paint so it doesn't dry so fast.

Yeah...
Use a smaller roller to get the paint on faster.
Then use a good 3" or 4" brush to lay it off. Use long, light, flowing strokes...then...get out of it!

If room is cooler, you've got a minute or so...!
Just don't "overwork" the paint.

I'd consider doing about half of it vertically, then lay off with brush.
Then roll on the other vertical half...repeat brush lay-off.

>> Make sure you've cleaned and scuff-sanded b4 doing anything!!

For vertical surfaces, you may need to do 3 lighter coats, to eliminate any risk of sagging.
No 2 people apply paint the same ya know!
