*In all my painting these last weeks, I actually could tell a big difference in the quality of rollers. We used the cheap “economy” rollers for the walls, but on the cabinets and doors, used the high end rollers and it made a difference for a smooth, seamless finish. Also, painting walls, I’d wrap the roller in plastic wrap and use the same one again 4 hours later for the second coat. But with cabinets, I broke down and used a brand new roller with each coat. Also with brushes. I actually used a cheap brush for the primer, but used a nice angled brush for paint on the corners of the cabinet doors.***
Everything I read recommended using semi-gloss paint, so it’s got enough gloss you can clean them, being in the kitchen, but high gloss shows imperfections more.
So I used Behr semi-gloss paint and the color was Popped Corn.
Once again, I used a brand new fancy Purdy brand roller for each coat.
Behr brand paint has you wait 4 hours before repainting, so 4 hours later, paint your second and final coat.
