Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome paint! This paint is GREAT for cabinets. Used on my kitchen cabinets and they look awesome. Glides on, dries quickly but not TOO quickly that you can't work with it. The finish is fantastic.

Take the extra time to prep well and it will be well worth it! Also usedthis product on exterior doors and help up amazing to NH winter!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absolute favorite paint, ever. I discovered this paint when I was refinishing my kitchen cabinets. After realizing how hard and durable this paint is once dried, I was hooked. I use this paint for everything trim related. I’ve even used it outside on all of our windows, garage doors, doors, everything. It is expensive, but it’s worth every single penny. As long as your area is prepped correctly with the right primers and surface, this paint will last far beyond what you’ll ever need it to.
