We recently refinished our kitchen cabinets...

Joseph P from Spring Mills, PA Posted July 28, 2010
We recently refinished our kitchen cabinets with a high quality milk paint,(not from Rockler) that although it came out nice, we felt it wasn't going to be a durable enough finish for the long run in a kitchen. Cleaning and wipe-downs seemed to take off paint and the surfaces didn't have a nice smooth feel like a factory finished cabinet. Based on the reviews and advice from other users here, I selected this product as a clear top coat. Expensive? Perhaps, but I wanted an excellent product both in ease of application and durability. I was also very concerned about using anything that might tint or distort the color of the milk paint so a crystal clear finish was a must. This product delivered! Yes, it goes on a little milky but dries crystal clear and hard. We applied three coats to surfaces that would be handled regularly like the doors and face frames and two coats to the cabinet boxes. The cabinets now have the look and feel of a factory finish. Nice! Drying time between coats was quick as one would expect with a water based finish but this let us get the job done and get the kitchen back in use in a weekend! We used foam brushes for application with no complaints. (Although we were very upset with the 'premium' grade foam brushes we got from that Large Overstuffed Wonderfully Excessive Store which seemed to start breaking down and leaving black bits and hairs behind! Don't waste your $$!) As a die-hard varnish, shellac and lacquer user who shunned polyurethanes, I kept saying how 20 years ago, if someone told me I'd be applying a WATER-based clear top coat while using a 98 cent foam brush and loving the results, I'd say they were nuts! But, I did and I'm very happy! I will definitely recommend this to anyone.

Edward M from Pine Hill, NY Posted June 29, 2010
Time will tell about durability, but this finish is a pleasure to work with. It brushes out well on large surfaces with a high quality soft polyester brush. It levels very well with no streaking, and it's a dream to sand between coats - dusts off like lacquer. The finish has no rubbery feel like the earlier water base clear finishes. First coat raises the grain a bit, but the first sanding takes care of that and subsequent coats result in a clear, hard finish with a great feel. Water based finish has come a long way.

Michael G from Dumfries, VA Posted January 30, 2010
The product behaves as advertised. While it brushes out nicely, it levels better when applied with a foam brush or a high quality paint pad. Use firm pressure with the paint pad after you have squeezed most of the finish from the pad on the edge of the paint tray. Use as large a pad as you can to maintain a wet edge while coating. If coating a large project, be careful not to transfer partially dried finish from the paint tray to the project. As with most materials, once you learn the parameters, your technique improves and your result is a beautiful finish. Also, as with any water-based finish, excessive build-up in corners will show up as cloudy on dark woods, so be sure to brush out your corners.
