Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KZ65 Worked well, good end results
This product worked well, I had to do a total of 5 coats plus 2 coats of varnish to get the desired look. Took 3 coats of the cabinet enamel right on top of the wood cabinet to fully cover the wood look. I didn't do anything prior - no sanding, stripping, nothing. Then I had to do 2 coats of the color I wanted, plus 2 coats of varnish, but the end result was very good. No more wood cabinet. May have been easier and less coats if the cabinet enamel could have been colored, but the associate in the store told me it couldn't, not sure why since it was just a basic white. They also said I needed to sand and do prep work, which was not necessary. To their credit, this is not sold in the stores and as they admitted they were not familiar with the product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie This paint is awesome!
I started with an old stained and varnished corner china cabinet and ended up with an updated white china cabinet that looks brand new!! I even updated the brass hardware with satin nickel hardware purchased from Home Depot. I am so pleased with it all!! Best paint I have ever worked with!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry1016 Good product, nice hard finish
I was painting dark stained Knotty pine kitchen cabinets and I want something other than semigloss latex. A local paint store recommended this product. I did four coats - Bin to cover the knots, a good Ben Moore latex primer, and two coat of Cabinet Coat. It does dry quickly but don't go back to touch up dry spots or finish will be raised. Better to let it dry completely and re-coat entire surface. Finish is a hard, durable satin finish somewhat like a factory finish, great for kitchen and bath. It goes a long way. It took only a little over a quart to do 2 coats on my kitchen cabinets and a bathroom vanity.Unless you have a really big job, I would start with a quart.

I've used this paint for a few years now.
All the trim and cupboards in my upstairs were painted
with this 6 years ago. This stuff wears like iron --if
you prep your surface properly and use high quality brushes. Clean and lightly sand .
The finish is as if you've sprayed with an oil enamel.
The paint is thin and there is a learning curve. Read
and FOLLOW the instructions carefully. It dries to the touch quickly and you can't back brush into it after a minute or so. If you see a drip, then you you just have to sand it out when dry.
I won't use any other paint for my trim or cupboards.

I've used this product before on kitchen cabinets, this time on unfinished cabinets, took 2 coats on five base cabinets. I used two 1qt cans using a foam brush,and they look great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arlingtonmom amazing factory finish with this paint!!
This is the BEST paint I have EVER tried for cabinets or woodwork/trim! It is self leveling, and dries very hard like a factory finish! Great paint!!!

This paint is great, I used it for a new pine cabinet and it looks perfect like store bought.
I used a foam roller for some of it and sprayed some. had to thin for spraying but still got great results.
Paint seems tuff I guess time will tell, I know I will be using this again.
Looks high end.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UpgraderGirl Applies nicely
It comes with great instructions and tips. I ordered this for an antique secretary, but it didn't give me the gloss I wanted so I opted for a semi-gloss for this project instead. I still would recommend and I will use this for future projects [thinking of doing actual kitchen cabinets in spring]. I also recommend using a primer first + more than one coat if painting over wood tones. This paint has a very light sheen, applies evenly and is easy to work with/clean up and drying time isn't too fast or too slow, but this definitely meant for actual kitchen cabinets or melamine where a lower sheen level would be appropriate.
