Hoping someone can offer some advice on how to fix my kitchen cabinet nightmare.
I painted the cabinets 5 years ago when I bought the house (30+ years old). At the time, the primer seemed to stay sticky no matter how long I waited to paint so I ended up throwing on a couple coats of paint just to get it done. There's been quite a bit of peeling, especially around the handles, almost seems like the paint is just rubbing off so I'm repainting again.
I stripped off all the paint, sanded down to the bare wood, TSP'd and applied what the guy at Home Depot told me was DEFINATELY the primer I weanted to use: Behr's Premium Plus Interior Enamel Undercoater Primer & Sealer no. 75.
I washed, sanded and TSP'd the cabinets themselves, primed and top coated without any issues, it looks great. As soon as I started to apply the primer to the cabinet doors it started to yellow up. I spot primed a place I'd bumped one of the already primed doors and it yellowed up right away as well. It's been a few days and I'm finding the same issue again with the drying, it seems to stay sticky even though it really should be dry by now.
I did some reading here and it seems perhaps I should be using a shellac based primer instead, is that correct?
Should I apply a second coat of primer and hope it comes out better?
If I go with a shellac based primer, what brand would you reccommend?
To use the shellac based primer, do I have to strip off the primer I've just applied to the first few doors?
Thanks in advance
