For one thing, while it goes on smoothly, oil-based paint takes a long time to dry in between coats—up to 16 hours. Without good circulation (such as inside of a cabinet), waiting for the paint to dry can really become an issue. Keeping your cabinets emptied for days as you let the paint dry between coats can be a nuisance that many people are not willing to deal with. Latex paint, however, is ready for another coat in as little as two to four hours. This means you can easily paint in a day and put your kitchen back together pronto.
If you are a fan of contrast and breaking the rules, you can simply add striking color hints into your kitchen cabinet. Yellow and white or green and white kitchen cabinets make great choices.If simple is not what you like, simply break the all-white or all any other color and add a splash of the other color you like!
Let the paint dry for about two hours. Dip the paintbrush in the paint can and manually paint the areas that the roller could not reach. Avoid drips by minimally applying the paint and by re-brushing. Areas that were painted more than a few minutes ago will likely already be filming over. So, confine your re-brushing to areas that were only recently painted.Apply Additional Coats Paint colors deepen and reach their full potential by being applied in two or even three coats. At a minimum, let the paint dry for at least a couple of hours, then re-roll and re-brush the paint one more time.
Something about the color of gray works simply beautiful for our kitchens. The shade teeters between a calming neutrality and an interesting warmth, manage to offer the best of both worlds. Of course, relying on what shade of gray you pick, your kitchen may be closer to one end or the other.
