The reviews on Aqua Coat are mixed but this is what works for me. This is on a piece of ash. It's very important that you sand to 320 grit and then spritz some water on the piece to raise the grain. After spritzing you will notice that the wood becomes fuzzy. Sand the fuzz off with 320 grit. The seal the wood with de-waxed shellac. Again sand with 320 grit. Then use the method illustrated in the video for filling the pores. Make sure to sand with 320 grit after pore filling. You may need to repeat the process two or three times to get optimal results.

The search for the perfect waterborne cabinet paint is over! In the search for a better cabinet grade waterborne finish, my company, JHC, recently started using SW Kem Aqua Plus. Its rare that I get excited about a new coating like this, but I am very pleased with the results we have been getting with this paint. Kem Aqua Plus is a waterborne pigmented lacquer finish system designed to be used for interior furniture, cabinetry and architectural mill work. It forms a very hard durable finish suitable for frequent traffic use on woodwork where a high performance coating is required and traditionally a solvent borne coating is used. Our experiences with Kem Aqua Plus started three months ago when our Sherwin Williams rep suggested it for our cabinetry painting. This coating has a learning curve that I would consider fairly high. It is a very thin coating in comparison to the heavy bodied acrylics many contractors are accustomed to. Sags and runs can occur, and application techniques may need to be adjusted to achieve the desired finish. This is a spray only coating so touch ups must be sprayed as well. Its quick cure to sand time however makes repairs easy. Air movement will dramatically improve dry time, and you can sand any mistakes or blemishes and recoat in about an hour when direct air flow from a fan is applied. Another advantage of the quick cure time is odor control. You can feel comfortable spraying this coating in an occupied home where air quality must always be a concern. The smell dissipates very quickly, leaving only faint paint odors remaining.

Insl-x Cabinet Coat I found salvation on a gardening forum. “Ace cabinet paint or Insl-x Cabinet Coat?,” someone queried in a 6-year-old post. Two products I hadn’t considered among the many I had. I zeroed in on the Insl-X. Made by Benjamin Moore, the acrylic-based paint claims to yield a sleek, easy-to-achieve factory finish. There’s no need to prime (heard that before) or apply a top coat (no fear of yellowing, yes!). It’s durable and cleans up with soap and water. Good enough for me. I was at the point where I would have applied nail polish if the end result would be the spectacular cabinets I hoped for. I found the paint at Saratoga Quality Hardware, a Benjamin Moore distributor. It cost $52 a gallon. I had the stark white base tinted just a touch to their popular dove white shade. Well aware I was on the brink, my husband agreed we’d tackle the re-renovation together. We sanded the chalk paint down to an even base, wiped the cabinets with tack cloth and brushed away. This product goes on smooth and dries quick. Real quick. Stall just a bit midstroke and there will be streaks to contend with. The paint leveled to a near-perfect satin-smooth finish. I could run my nail across the color and no mark would remain. Because we used a brush, and not a spray gun, there were variations here and there, but nothing tear-inducing.
