Customer Questions & Answers

I recently painted my kitchen cabinets and want to add a clear, durable top coat. what should I use?

I used valspars bonding primer (after first deglossing, cleaning, sanding, and removing the dust) and then I have three coats of Behr Alkyd semi gloss enamel on top. The cabinet has been dry and curing for weeks. Probably a month minimum. And I used a kitchen towel to scrub off dried dog spit (ew) and the paint scratched a little. I am looking for a more durable top coat to apply so I can avoid this in the future
Asked by: JenniferM
Hello JenniferM, Great question. You can apply a clear Water Based Polyurethane to give the coating extra protection. Best regards, Kevin

What type of paint would you use to paint over this?

I used this to paint my bathroom cabinets, and it is way too glossy. I followed directions precisely, and you can still see brush strokes, fingerprints, and it is quite sticky.
Asked by: courto
Hi courto, Thank you for your question! We would recommend using a lower sheen of our BEHR Premium Plus line over the top of this coating.

Can Behr alkyd paint be tinted to a Behr marquee color & how would marquee compare to allyd for a kitchen cabinet reno?

I'm also thinking zinzer shellac primer ETC extensyve prep work prior. Refinishing really real wood cabs. Thank you!!
Asked by: Resa
Hi Resa, Thanks for your question. Yes, this paint can be tinted to any color. Both paints would be a good option for kitchen cabinets. The alkyd has the added benefit of having the best flow and leveling out of all of our products but if you are interested in a different sheen (the alkyd only comes in semi-gloss), Marquee will be just a durable and is available in various sheens.

1 gal. Deep Base Alkyd Semi-Gloss Enamel Interior/Exterior Paint is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst paint ever I have been using Behr paint for over 30 years now and love it. That is until I bought this alkyd paint. This paint was a nightmare.I messed with it for about 6 weeks painting a few pieces of wood. and the paint would not dry. After 4 weeks it was still tacky. I even used a fan for several days on it to help dry.My family called it the paint from ? . Bought a second can and had the same issue. The humidity level was also low. I wasted about 5 hours on a can of this paint including prepping and using Behr oil based paint which turned out great. This paint should be pulled off the shelves.

I have used this as ceiling paint in two rooms so far. Love it. Dry time was 2 hours, although I waited 4 hrs for second coat; it's two-coat coverage; and it has a tough, shiny semi-gloss finish. Noticeably tougher finish than regular enamel. Water cleanup is easy, too. I bought one can to see if I liked it. I need to do two more ceilings, and I'm going back to HD for more of this stuff. That's the best testimonial I can give ANY product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Paint We used this to paint our kitchen cabinets and love the way the paint applied and looked after drying. The Behr representative recommended this product and we couldn't be more pleased. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from i want to love this paint I really want to love this paint it does go on well but it has been 3 weeks and still not dry, i really think it has to do with how humid it is in your house. I called behr and they said to wipe down with a mild detergent and that helped some but still tacky. Hope it dries i dont want to redo cabinets i spent days sanding down to bare wood and applying 2 coats of oil base primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alkyd is Amazing! As a professional painting contractor, I have used many paints over the years, from just about all the suppliers. I started using the Alkyd for interior trim and doors about a year ago and fell in love with it! What a great finish at an affordable price. Wish it was here 10 years ago! thanks Behr!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from experience with 3900 Tried many different brands of latex enamel trim paint, all same--brush marks and surface that easily came up. Tried Behr Alkyd enamel--Oh Boy!---goes down easy, has just enough sag where majority of brush marks disappear as the paint dries and dried surface is hard and durable. Takes a little bit longer to dry than latex, but results are worth the wait. Clean up is the same (with water). I'm using white 3900, which is more of a light cream-Would like to know if Behr makes same in more of a traditional bright white. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Goes on smooth, dries reasonably fast., more durable and almost no scent. My favorite aspect of it, cleans 10x easier than latex off painting tools. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best ever for wood trim The woodwork in my house was stained. I wanted to paint but was having difficulty getting acheiving that smooth glossy look of oil paint until this product was recommended to me. Its amazing! It self levels and dries very hard giving my woodwork the look of oil. Best paint ever! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
