Hello, I primered my wood paneling with BIN 2 days ago and then yesterday I gave it two coats of latex paint. It came out looking great. My question is, how long will it take the latex paint to cure? I've heard everything from 2 days to 3 days to 30 days. After all that work I want to make sure no water or furniture comes into contact with the paint b4 it has time to completely harden. Anyone with lots of paint experience who can educate me on this. Thank you.

I wouldn't lean anything against the walls for atleast a couple days, but curing time will vary. You can always use the fingernail test. If you can press your fingernail into the paint really easily, it isn't cured.
