Primer for new wood kitchen cabinet


Hello,

I am planning out a small addition to existing kitchen cabinets. It will be a small 12"Hx21"W wall cabinet below an existing high cabinet. Painting will be with brush and roller as I do not have a sprayer. The wood is birch plywood and poplar for the face frame.

Only the face frame and one exterior side panel need to be painted. The interior will get shellac and polyurethane for the wood (matching existing cabinets). This is a tiny job, so even a small color sampler paint size would be enough. A waterborne alkyd paint in satin would probably best match the finish and color of the existing cabinets. What primer is best for bare wood under a waterborne alkyd paint?

Thanks,
--H

Re: Primer for new wood kitchen cabinet


Lot of good options for this.
You could go with the primer recommended specifically for the finish paint you plan to use. For example BM Advance, a waterborne alkyd, has a special primer meant to go under it. Likewise other brands will recommend primers in their own line of products.

Considering how small the job is I would be tempted to buy a quart of Bin shellac based primer, or an all purpose oil primer like Cover Stain. Either would do the job well, are generally readily available in quarts, and the left overs could be used for a lot of other jobs that might come up in the future.

scuff sand to ~150grit. BM Advance primer or 217 alkyd undercoater. All offer good adhesion, levelling, dry hard with good hold out and sand easy. 024 all purpose alkyd or 046 latex if you can't find the above.

Since its just a real small job maybe just a rattle can of Bin
