      @Lagree Wyndham I agree...I just painted at home, with 2 cans of the same hardware store brand...1 can was older than the other, and the drying and recoating info was different on both cans! Herb I'm guessing you mean ''ProClassic''? If you do not have the label or can no longer read it, click here for info. It says the drying/recoating time is listed in one of the document links.-> Check the ''technical info'' tab (scroll down on the page).

    Latex paint usually takes a little longer to dry depending on the humidity in the house. I would check the paint can for suggested drying times.

    When I painted my kitchen cabinets and walls I waited 24 hours just to be sure between coat's.

    I usually wait until it's dry to the touch with your fingernail. If you can make a mark in it easily with your fingernail, then wait a little longer. I usually go 1-2 hours in medium humidity, you can also throw a fan on and it'll dry faster if you wanna get the project done quickly

      @Jennifer Lynn I used to skip primer and recoat too soon, on most of my projects. I can honestly say that rushing a job can really affect its durability. Putting a fan on it makes it drier to the touch which is good if you are afraid of hand prints or dust or stray hairs sticking to the surface, but it still needs to dry well under the surface. Unfortunately there can be a big difference between drying and recoating times. I just used a paint that had a 1 hour drying time, but 6 hour recoat. When it comes to kitchen cabinets, it is best to let it dry longer, since it will be subjected to much more abuse than a wall.

    Ask the the salesman from the Sherman Williams store where you bought it.

    I guess I just don't listen, but I have never had problems with doing a repcoat before the recommended time frame
