is this the correct order to paint kitchen cabinets?
 
Hi-
Going from finsished maple to antique white w/ glazing. I did this 4 years ago but can not exactly remember how I did it. All paints are water based. Looking for some input.

scrub down
sand with Orbital 180
clean/ 409
roll primer
lightly sand 220 by hand
spray primer
lightly sand 220 by hand
spray solid color
lightly sand 220 by hand
spray antique white
lightly sand 220 by hand
spray antique white
apply glazing
spray solid vinyl sealer
spray 2 coats of clear satin

Sorta-
Are you removing doors?
You roll primer- do you back brush or just leave the stipple?
Why 2 coats primer?
You say spray- Do you know how?
Usually one primer 2 top coats can get it.
What is the difference between vinyl sealer and clear coat?

I do not know how to spray. I do one coat of primer myself because I never think enough primer gets on the cabinets when it is sprayed on. Its been my understanding that too much primer is a better problem than not enough.

My tenant is a painter and he will come and spray the cabinets.

I was hoping to find if there was a difference between vinyl sealer and clear coat.

One (1) coat primer is all you need

No this is one situation that the two coats of primer will do well. Maple has alot of tannins that will want to soak through and make your white into a light yellow.

If you use the right primer one coat is always enough.Wrong primer and ten coats wont work.

I wasn't aware of that, and thought otherwise. Where did you find that info?

Grants Painting 02-08-2013 07:57 PM

Ahhh. yes there are woods with more tannins. However not many so dark. How clever of you to point that out.

If you would pay attention to the original poster. (for the last time) He mentioned ALL products are water based. With that knowledge alone I figured they would do better with the extra coat of primer. Especially if it were to be sprayed on too thin. Remember guys were supposed to be here to help.

Is any of this making sense?

not to me:no: there are woods with more tannins , like oak, maple is not one of them

Grants Painting 02-09-2013 08:21 AM

Yes it has very little tannins. However the ones it has are VERY DARK. They will show through with a white finish with water based products.

There's a lot of confusion on this short thread, between tannin content, latex primers, and the number of coats required, it's a wonder anyone has a straight answer. If OP hadn't already had his answer, we would need to clear through the haze.

ToolSeeker 02-10-2013 08:08 AM

I must be lucky I have never had tannins in maple bleed thru any primer. To the OP if you feel better with 2 coats then go for it, it won't hurt anything.
