I am finishing up construction of some built-in cabinets and shelving for a dining room. The built-ins consists of lower cabinets, a plywood countertop, and shelving above the countertop. I used maple plywood and poplar 1x2’s for most of the material. The material was mostly pre-sanded when purchased. I plan to do a little bit of fine grit sanding before priming just to clean it up a bit.
I am painting the entire setup white. Using Benjamin Moore Advance paint (waterborne interior alkyd). Primer then two coats of satin top-coat. I have used this paint for other cabinets in the house and it holds up well, but I was thinking about after painting putting a few coats of water-based polyurethane on the surfaces that will get a little more beat-up (counter top, shelves, etc.)
Has anyone had any experience with this approach and possibly these specific products?
