    It would work well. Enamel is best or Fusion mineral paint. What matters most is your prep: sanding and priming very well.

    Great! The more sheen on paint the more cleanable. I use semi gloss oil based paint. It's the longest lasting of all paint.

    Check with a paint supplier, the make special paint for cabinets, Home Depot sells a paint called Cabinet Restore, very smooth, hard finish. Rust oleum makes a product too, but you need to ware a respirator when you apply it

    Thank you very much for your response

  • You can, but it's going to require way more coats of paint for even coverage. It also shows brush marks so don't touch paint as it's drying. I prefer satin for cabinets.
