How do I get mirror like glossy look on cabinets?

This question is from Shortcut 2 in. Polyester Angle Sash Brush

July 22, 2013
I got glidden high gloss paint and painted cabinets with a foam roller. And it had tiny bubble like texture from the roller I think. I painted again with a brush, and it is shinier but has brush mark. Is there a way to achieve smooth and glossy look? The cabinet was originally very glossy and smooth like mirror.

Thanks for your advice in advance.

Answer: 
I've found that using a semi-gloss or high gloss paint (my personal preference is for Behr paint and primer in one) and applying it with a quality natural fiber brush seems to do the trick after the second layer of paint is applied. I applied the paint generously, and it evened out well. Rollers (foam or otherwise) have always left bubbles for me. If I want a glossy coat but want to get there more Read More

I applied the paint generously, and it evened out well. Rollers (foam or otherwise) have always left bubbles for me. If I want a glossy coat but want to get there more quickly, a roller is fine for the first application layer, but then I use a very fine grit sandpaper and lightly buff out the bumps left behind by the roller, and use a brush for the second coat.

Answer: 
I am not an expert but I think it might make a difference if you sanded the cabinets then painted again. You don't have to do heavy sanding; just use a basic sander from the paint department. I would not use a small roller or cigar roller. I would use the brushes you mentioned.

Have you tried using a lighter/softer nap on a roller? I hate the look of brush strokes (personal nuance) so I would suggest that.

Answer: 
I always try to use a "feather light" touch on my final coats when using high gloss paint with a foam roller. It eliminates the bubbles you get when you press too hard. Just "kiss" the surface with the roller. You should get better results.

Answer: 
Have you tried an additive such as Floetrol? It makes the paint go on smoother and hides brush marks. I would recommend sticking with the foam roller, but doing thin coats as well. Hopefully you prepped the cabinets by sanding and priming first. Good luck!

One thing I have learned about foam rollers is that you MUST soak them in paint and squeeze it out REALLY well before you start to paint. This will get the air bubbles out of the foam. Every foam roller I have ever used had to be prepared in this manner to avoid bubbles. My cabinets look like glass, but I used this method: I quickly used a small, prepared foam roller to roll on the exact amount of paint Read More
One thing I have learned about foam rollers is that you MUST soak them in paint and squeeze it out REALLY well before you start to paint. This will get the air bubbles out of the foam. Every foam roller I have ever used had to be prepared in this manner to avoid bubbles. My cabinets look like glass, but I used this method: I quickly used a small, prepared foam roller to roll on the exact amount of paint I wanted for one coat on the entire cabinet door, and immediately followed by passing a FOAM BRUSH, LIGHTLY, from top to bottom in one continuous pass over the paint from the top of the door to the bottom. Then I quickly lightly passed it over the next strip. The foam brush was prepared in this manner: All of the foam brushes I've ever used had a point on the end. I took a pair of large sharp sissors and wacked off the end until it was perfectly square. This makes an ideal brush to smooth the paint and leaves NO brush marks! Practice makes perfect, so experiment a little because you want to make one clean sweep across the length that will NOT need any fixes! ! I put three coats of finish on my cabinets using this method. That was several years ago, and they still look like new! Oh, and don't forget to prepare the brush the same way as the roller! Read Less

Answer: 
I would try spraying w/ a minimum of 3 coats. Also I would spray at a distance safe enough to not cause over spray. That will kill your work every time. I f a sprayer is not available or you don,t have enough experience. Try an ultra fine brush and paint conditioner such as flotrol. Good luck!n

The best way to achieve a perfect finish is to spray the cabinet, doors and drawers with an oil-based paint because oil paints will self-level much better than water based paints, however this can be a very messy undertaking and requires a lot of prep work (taping off and tarping areas to be protected, etc).

The best way to achieve a perfect finish is to spray the cabinet, doors and drawers with an oil-based paint because oil paints will self-level much better than water based paints, however this can be a very messy undertaking and requires a lot of prep work (taping off and tarping areas to be protected, etc).
I just finished painting my master bathroom cabinets, doors and drawers which are those old, generic, white 1980's style Home Depot junk and achieved a perfect, factory-like finish, though I selected a satin finish, not a high gloss finish as you are attempting.
Use a quality paint, such as Benjamin Moore Advance for bathroom use. Cut the paint to approximately 70% paint and 30% water and mix very thoroughly, and continue to mix as you paint. Try and select a roller cover that will cover the entire surface in one pass. If your cabinets have rounded "wells" (such as beveled "inlays"), use a roller cover that matches the circumference, such as a mini-roller cover and paint the deeper welled areas first. A good foam roller, say 4 or 6 inches is perfect for painting these areas. Select a foam roller with foam on the end so you can use the tip of the roller as a primary applicator, then come back as a roller to even it out.
I used rollers only for my drawers and doors. My initial applicator tool was a four inch lint free foam cover, followed by a nine inch foam roller. I cut the paint in a series of coats, all sanded between, starting with 1000 grit and finishing with 2500 grit paper. I wet-sanded all coats, and cut my paint down to 40% water and 60% paint for the final three coats. My doors and drawers were painted using five coats of thinned paint, with a clean, unused foam roller that is lint free and has no seams for the final coat. A nine-inch foam cover for most drawers and an 18-inch cover for the larger cabinet doors.
Here's the roller trick: for your last coat, after sanding, apply your thinned paint, wait a few moments to allow the "bubbles" to settle, then come back with a new, unused, dry and ruffled foam roller cover and make one firm pass over the door/drawer. This will remove any bubbles left and leave you with an almost factory finish.
Remember, you can always use a lower luster paint then use a Spar Urethane afterward and either brush or even spray the final gloss coat if you like. Just be sure and use a "marine grade" urethane if used in wet locations such as a bathroom or kitchen sink area.
I don't know if I am permitted to list the exact brands I used. If a moderator would clarify, I'd gladly post a list of items I used, places purchased and direct links to them.
Keep in mind this is not the only way nor the "best" way. The best way depends on your skill level. Based on what you posted, my advice should work for you. There are many ways to paint cabinets, but I posted an option that's easiest (in my opinion) for your skill level.
Please note, I am in process of finishing that bathroom as I type. I will follow-up with a photo and all items used at a later date after a Home Depot moderator clarifies what is acceptable here as far as items used NOT from Home Depot and links thereto.
Hope this helps some. Read Less

Hello Serena!
Gloss paint is the hardest paint to paint super smooth because it shows every thing. I would recommend spraying the paint with a Preval handheld spray gun. You will just pour some paint into the little glass bottle and spray it like you would spray paint. The link to this product is below.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great edging brush! I got this brush to cut in the edges between the wall and popcorn ceiling. It worked great. I attached an image below. Also, I'm a first time home owner and a beginning painter. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Economical Brush This brush has been through its paces at my home. From doors, windows and staircases i have painted lots of surfaces with this item. I never see loose bristles on the surfaces, and I have used it with latex and oil paints. It's the best cut brush and fits easily in my hand (i have long fingers and a small hand) and the snubbed handle does not scrape the wall or trim making tight places easy to paint. Love the loop on the end for drying the brush so as not to bend the bristles. Rubber handle is durable. I recommended this for any general household painting. I use only horse hair brushes for staining so I have not tested it with a stain product. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Why Didn't They Think of This Years Ago? We recently painted a tall, three-piece bookcase/wall unit. We went from wood finish to white, so there were three coats of primer/paint. This was the best tool for cutting in all those interior corners! The compact size moves from left application to right application easily in your hand. With a longer handled brush,there is a lot of awkward movement to change the angle of the bush, but not with this one. In addition, the rubber handle is very comfortable in your hand and I like the control the shorter handle gives. The bristles are very good quality and so easy to clean. I highly recommend this little workhorse. I only wish they had thought of this sooner. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wooster shortcut paint brush! As a moderately experienced painter I'm telling you I can paint a line with a paintbrush Better and makes the job so much faster! I highly recommend this brush to beginners and experience painters, I promise is the best brush I've ever used! August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wooster paint brush I love this brush. It's very good for cutting in walls and baseboards especially with the rubber body. The price is fair. I use these brushes quite often. August 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent priced brush. It's a decent priced brush. I've had better but of course I paid more. I like the small rubber handle works well in tight areas. August 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love It! Made in USA! Glides smoothly and easy to control. No loose bristles. Holds a lot of paint. Easy cleanup. I loved using this brush and look forward to buying other Wooster brushes for my varied painting needs. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great brush for straight lines and sore hands. I have used this brush before and it's my favorite because the angle allows me to paint a clean edge. I also have arthritis in my dominant hand. This brush's handle is short which placed less stress on my hand when painting. Great brush! August 9, 2016
