Been researching a lot of cabinet paints and seem to only find the Rust-Oleum kit as the clear winner. However I came across some reviews that the Ace Cabinet, Door & Trim Semi-Gloss Alkyd Enamel Paint was used to fix the look that the Rust-Oleum kit left. I never tried it or saw the Rust-Oleum look myself, but it's what I read and I trust customer reviews over pictures found on a box. Anyways, this product is cheaper than the RO kit, but there are more steps in the process like, light sanding and primer (that's a good thing!). If you do not sand or primer, you take the risk of painting over dirt and grime from over the years. Also the current stain could still be seen if you do not put primer over it. Lastly, the enamel if used with a foam roller will help you get the smooth surface seen on most newly updated kitchen cabinets. See pics for yourself and good luck with your project.

I used this on bathroom cabinets at my son's home and it worked beautifully! Decided to use it in my bathroom at home. Disaster! I have a lake home so naturally in the summer it is quite humid. Although I have central air it obviously still was too humid. I used very thin coats of paint but was still tacky after three days drying. If you have weeks to complete the project it would be fine. Quite disappointed with the amount of drying time involved. i indicated I would recommend this product...but with the drying time warning!

Oh, but the SMELL!!

Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace Cabinet, Door & Trim Semi-Gloss Alkyd Enamel Paint - Gallon:

I hope the end result is worth it. The paint was easy to use and has dried thoroughly, but the SMELL is about to drive us from house and home! I had planned to do a few other cabinet interiors but will find a paint with less odor. What a headache!!

Covers oil based trim

By Blumberg Painting Co.

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace Cabinet, Door & Trim Semi-Gloss Alkyd Enamel Paint - Gallon:

I'm a pro painter, 27 years. This is my go-to paint for refinishing old, yellowed oil based painted trim/doors. You can't use any regular latex or acrylic paint over oil based paint. It won't adhere and will eventually chip and peel. This paint is a hybrid. It's actually an oil based finish, but suspended in a water based carrier. It's ability to wash up with soap and water and ammonia is only until it's dry, requiring paint thinner once dry. Do not use a brush with this for more than 3 hours without cleaning it or brush will be toast. But it will adhere to il based paint and will not yellow with age. A unique product, well worth it's cost.

      I shopped at ACE because I like to support independent stores, but I wish I hadn't bought their paint. I'm working on bathroom doors, and this cabinet paint is the thinnest--like water--and least-adhering paint I've ever worked with. I sanded and washed the doors, but it still doesn't adhere worth beans. I wish I'd read the reviews before purchasing and using it. I think I'm stuck now with days of reapplications. Rats.

      Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace Cabinet, Door & Trim Semi-Gloss Alkyd Enamel Paint - Gallon:

      This paint says "high hiding white" but is anything but. expect to put a half dozen coats on. This paint dries translucent compared to when it it put on. It is very prone to dripping. All around the single worst paint I have ever used.

          I bought a can a the local ACE and the person knew to use Latex Paint Tints, few ACE's have Latex Paint Tints (Color). My neighbor bought at the closest ACE after seeing my success with this product and his paint was tacky two weeks later. The local ACE had the paint but used water based tint, this will not allow the latex paint to cure for weeks or months. ACE paint person should know this but it appears by the number of people having drying problems they do not.
          GREAT product much cheaper than the cabinet finish kits if mixed properly!!!!LATEX PAINT=LATEX TINT

              My sister bought a house with a hideous builder grade kitchen from the early 80's. The door pulls were huge and in the center of the door so I had to be creative. I added wood facade styles and primed the doors. I then started hunting for paint and found a blog recommending one type of paint which was only available at ACE. I called the nearest ACE to where I work. They didn't have the paint but recommended ACE Crowder Bros. in Lakeland. The paint department manager there recommended this paint which was substantially less in price but guaranteed the same quality of results. He was right! We used small foam rollers to apply and we had to revisit new paint after about 20 minutes to check for drips (which is standard painting practice for any paint project). The kitchen looks to bright and inviting. See the results below.

                  This is the best paint I have found for wood trim and furniture. It self levels and dries to a nice luster. I have been looking for a paint to replace the old oil base paints and this is as close as I have come to getting the same results. It does sag a bit an you have to check for drips but otherwise no problems and the finish is worth it.

                    I forget exactly where I got the instructions, because I googled for recommendations for cabinet paint for about 3 months. Finally decided to go with Ace Cabinet after seeing it recommended on several forums. Anyhoo, I didn't sand, just washed thoroughly and primed with Zinsser Bulleye 123. Then, started with thin coats of the paint, with a roller followed by a sponge brush. Ummm, okay. Not really. Then I googled until I got the paint pad advice. With the cabinet doors laying flat, put a THICK coat of paint on the outside edges and centers. Amazing. Looked sprayed on. A little less thick on the frames (since they weren't lying down) but still amazing. I think 4 coats in all, but would have been less if is started with the pads. Love it.

                        This product was recommended to me to use on sanded and primed interior metal railings. It was supposed to be "self-smoothing", but that meant that it had slow drips so I had to go back and double check my work after about 10 and 20 minutes to smooth out the drips. I also had to use it thinly to avoid more drips so it required 3 coats and then it still wasn't a smooth finish. I've used the same primer before and never had a problem getting a smooth result before.

                            I have used this product on three different projects. The first was a bathroom vanity. It took weeks to dry but I think it was due to being done in a hot and humid July. I then brushed on a stain to antique it. Then I used it on a ruff pine bench that I leave on our covered porch, this one dried quick. Lastly, I used it on our bedroom furniture and again antiqued it. Everything turned out perfect, the paint is easy and forgiving to use no brush marks and a nice smooth finish. Only the first project took a long time to dry the other projects would dry so fast I could apply a second coat within a couple of hours. I would definitely use this product again.

                              We have used this product several times over the last five years. First in our kitchen, then in our bathrooms, over builder grade cabinets. I love that this paint is self-leveling, because it leaves a smooth, professional finish even if I'm not a pro at painting. This self-leveling does take longer to dry, so be prepared to wait a full 24 hours between coats. It has been five year since we first used this product in a heavy traffic kitchen with kids, and there are no nicks or dings in the paint. It is a fraction of the cost of the more expensive cabinet paint kits. I highly recommend it!

                              I painted a bathroom door that was a builder white. I had Ace's "Cabinet, Door & Trim" paint tinted to New Canvas, E40. I needed 3 coats to hide a white with another white. The pre-mixed color, High Hiding White, hides better. Disappointing, BUT...very durable and extremely smooth! The trick is to try not to "back brush" too much. "Back brushing" will interrupt the leveling process.

                              I have painted several furniture items with Ace cabinet paint over the past 3.5 years. Wears amazingly well-- painted bunk beds 3 years ago and hasn't peeled or yellowed. Good coverage, but don't plan on trying to do fewer than 2 coats. Will probably redo all my trim in this paint eventually-- excited to see my store now carries the tintable bases!

                                hours after putting on first coat it is still running...its like water. 6 hour dry time to touch 24 till recoat...it was a front door.. had to leave the house open with door off all day. Looks great if you have that much time to waste.

                                    Painted my cabinets with this stuff, using a brush and a foam roller. The brush left minimal paint lines, and the foam roller left almost none. As it dries it looks like it is going to be very uneven, but fully dry it looks good. Covers well with the first coat and easy wash up of brush and roller. Needed a second coat in spots where there was a significant color change underneath. Cheap alternative to professional finish, with good results if not top notch. For the price well worth it. I bought it for cabinets but plan to use it for all my trim after seeing the good results.

                                    This paint is perfect for trim and cabinets. It dries with virtually no brush strokes! It does have a strong scent like an oil paint but is water based so you can clean with soap and water. Dry time is 24 hours so beware!
