DIY cabinet painting that is durable without a top coat is possible. You can save thousands and update your kitchen or bathroom. Heirloom Traditions Heritage formula is made for this purpose. My cabinets have had high use and not chipped at all. It has been about six months since I painted them. You can do this yourself!
This step is important when using heritage formula paint. It is a self-leveling paint when you stipple the first layer on and let it dry, the next coat goes on with a better coverage. It has a built-in top coat that truly is durable after it cures.
