You can’t just slop the paint on and hope for the best.
That’s why its really important to choose the right paint for the project at the outset.
– A semi-gloss finish on cabinets will be easy to wipe clean and will not stain or hold onto grime as chalk painted cabinets may do Cons – Latex paint has a significantly longer dry time between coats.
However, I personally use very little oil in my cooking, so it’s not something I’m overly concerned about.
If you are planning a painting project soon, I would definitely recommend chalk paint.
Try it out on something small and see what you think.
I am not a professional painter, but I have done more than my fair share of painting in this DIY life, of everything from walls to furniture, to decor, and now cabinets, and have used both chalk paint and latex paint extensively.
Latex paint has traditionally been the go-to paint for interior projects.
