Latex over stain


I have a kitchen cart/cabinet that I would like to paint white to match woodwork. The cabinet is wood and has been stained (with what I do not know). I plan to do light sanding, prime with 1-2-3 then high gloss latex.
Then change all hardware (will come off prior to job).

Will this be sufficient or do I need to do anything else? I'd like to stay away from anything oil-base if possible.

As long as you sand the surface first as you mentioned, then clean it well with tsp, apply a quality bonding primer you can apply a waterbourne product. I would suggest a acrylic enamel

I'm not really familar with waterborne products. What exactly is it and does SW make it. I was hoping to use the same latex that's on the woodwork and door. This cabinet will have a microwave on top.

Waterbourne are water base paints vs oil base. There is latex and acrylic latex. 100% acrylics are better than just a latex they have more elasticity, retain color better, more durable. Most premium water base paints now days are acrylic and are just as equivalent to oil bases if not outpreforming some oil base paints. Sherwin Williams carries a great line of paints and enamels. We purchase our products from Sherwin Williams ans will not warranty our work unless we use there products. I suggest there all purpose enamel. .

SW is only a few blocks from me so I'll take a chip of what I'm using (acrylic latex) and have them mix some enamel. Thanks so much for the info.

Your welcome, I definitely think you'll be better off with an enamel for that application, enamels are a little harder and more durable.

I forgot you do not have a Ben Moore near you, here is what you want

http://www.sherwin-williams.com/pdf/...paint.pdf'

It is a little tricky to work with initially( somewhat watery and drys very fast) brush it on quickly and watch for runs before moving on, it will bead up and run out of the corners like no tomorrow..After it starts to set up,LEAVE IT ALONE! Trust me, it is better to let it dry completely and then deal with any mistakes then to try and brush them out when starting to dry.
