I don't know what you mean by good deal but they will yellow over time
Poor Garage. Just kidding. Kinda. There is decent Glidden paint but what you get a HD is usually not it.Interior paint.
I can't resist a bargain when it comes to miss-tint paints. Today I picked up 2 5-gallon buckets of Glidden interior eggshell at HD. Both the same color, talked to the girl and got them for $20 so they wouldn't have to move them around. Yeah it's Glidden, ironically the about same color I picked out at SW. Will use those for the garage.

As far as your oil goes, that is some of the best stuff they can put in a can but what is on your cabinets now? Oil does not play well going over latex even with a primer.
Remember if they are unpainted you will have to prime with oil if your using oil paint. And yes they will yellow but that is a good paint and it will take years in most cases for that to happen.
Why do you have to prime bare wood or why do you have to prime at all?
No Latex he has already bought oil base. And he only has 2 qts so I thought to prime with oil would save paint. I don't know how many cabinets he has.Hmmm, I understood oil primer is v good - better than water primers, especially on some rustic wood exteriors, with plenty of resins still in wood(?). Sands way smooother too. Now, final coat with good latex, of course.
I haven't ran across a lot of oak I have wanted to paint. I have talked many a customer out of painting oak. The times I have painted over oak I cried a little inside. Do they look bad? Is there a coat of Poly or varnish on them?Garage already has a coat of something, just need to clean it and give it a coat of something, ain't picky.
Right now, just have unpainted, basic oak cabinets.
Maybe it's just me then but i feel that a oil primer under oil paint in a kitchen would give you max protection and washability:huh:.
True, but it help the finish coat stay adhered when you scrub on it.Well, I won't argue that oil primer might be best, but it certainly has no bearing on washability, you are not washing the primer

You are better off to put the oil paint straight on the wood than to put a latex primer underneath it.I suppose, but I believe it would stick to a latex primer as well as an oil based one. Besides who would be scrubbing THAT hard?:laughing:
Rick? Help me out here.:wink:

I just think oil based paint will penetrate wood better than a latex primer will. The better the penetration, the less chance of peel.explain, please
