    Default MDF kitchen cabinets

    Hi everyone
    So I am in the process of stripping the old vinyl wrap off my kitchen cabinets and painting them gloss white.
    I have sanded the adhesive residue but still the 4 in one prep I am using is being absorbed . And after 3 costs it is still soaking in .
    I did some research and it seems the B.I.N shellac undercoat is recommended by a few people.
    I realise that the adhesive may make it hard for an absolutely perfect finish but the gloss coat I did after the three undercoats looks nothing like a gloss ....
    I should mention I used a water based paint due to my asthma but if oil or shellac based is going to work better then I will just have to suck it up
    Anyone done this successfully and if so could I use the zessar bin spray can
    Thanks for any advice 😊

    Im not sure how it compares to your scenario but i used a 2k primer followed by a satin oil enamel (2 or 3 coats from memory). Came out pretty flawless.

    Thanks for the reply 😊
    After reading your post I looked up the 2K primer and seems quite a few people have used it for cabinets.
    I am wanting a gloss finish , is the primer already glossy and if so can a gloss finish enamel be used over it ?

    Have you taken them to a 2pak paint shop for a quote on spraying them professionally?
