I'd like to know more about your melamine paint. Spray? Roll on? How's the finished texture? I'd love any and all details. Thanks.
Bummer, I had my post done up, forgot to click 'upload' on a picture, and lost the post when I clicked submit. Let me try this again.
The melamine paint is CIL Interior Cabinet, Furniture, Doors & Trim from Home Depot. I've used it before on wood cabinets and is a very durable, self leveling gloss.
Two days ago, I painted a test sample of KILZ2 latex primer, CIL Interior Kitchen, Bathroom & Laundry Room latex paint and CIL Interior Cabinet, Furniture, Doors & Trim melamine paint from Home Depot on a cabinet. Both the latex paint and primer are sticking well, while the melamine paint scrapes off easily. I realize that the melamine isn't fully cured, but the results thus far are poor. I'm going to apply melamine paint over the primer test patch tonight and see how that works.
I painted the insides of the two upper cabinets (after sanding and cleaning with acetone) with one coat of primer and paint. The results are very good.
This past weekend I also sanded all cabinets, inside and out, and got two coats of primer on the last piece of ensolite that was removed from the back where the table plywood backer was replaced. My wife got the second coat of paint on the rest of the ensolite.
