Should I use paint deglosser and or paint conditioner?
I did a lot of research prior to embarking on the journey of refinishing our kitchen cabinets. They are old, at least 40 year old custom cabinets...and they are solid wood. There are many ridges and sunken areas that will be very hard to sand, even to just degloss the surface. I also thought paint conditioner, as an additive, would be great at settling the finish to a nice, flat, eggshell finish. I went to purchase both products and was talked out of them; I 2nd guessed all of my research. I was told the conditioner would just ruin the paint ("because the paint formula was already perfect"), that it might even chamge the paint color and that I just needed the right foam roller to do the job. And I was told the deglosser was a waste and that sanding would be much easier. I think I'm going back to get the deglosser just because our cabinets are not what he suspected. I attached a pic of a cabinet door. I'm going to need to fill and sand some bad spots anyway, but I'll need overall help of the deglosser. Now, I need some input regarding the paint conditioner. And any other input or suggestions are very welcome!! Thanks!
