For those who have ventured to paint their fiberglass closet/cupboards in their bolers, I am just curious how durable the paint is.
Melamine paint seems to be the choice and I question whether it ends up with nicks and scratches from use.
Any info would be appreciated.
I used a good floor paint on my doors. The uppers and closet look wonderful and fresh and clean. The ones on the storage area need to be resanded and repainted as the items I typically store in the campen when enroute have scratched the paint badly. I'll have to start using some bins or something. Other than this, I've been very pleased.
The product I used was an acrylic enamel with urethane in the mix. It's performed very well on my front exterior porch floor so I felt confident it would be fine on the doors.
I may paint a design on the doors and then finish them off with a few coats of a non-yellowing poly. In the homes I design, where we have paint finishes or murals, I always had this done. The poly takes the brunt of the hit and the underside remains substantially more protected. You can purchase this in spray form, too. It's what I use on my artwork.
The prep for the doors involved a light
sanding and then a good cleaning with TSP. Some may say the TSP pits well enough that you don't need to sand. That's likely true, but, the better the prep, the better the adhesion.
Good luck! Pictures when you're done?
