Interior oil paint

anne asked 10 years ago

We have had interior bookcases and an entertainment cabinet primed and painted with 2 coats of oil paint. How long do I need to wait to place books, etc. on the shelves so that no marks are made in the paint?

You should wait a week before setting anything on the shelves. Wait a few more days before putting a TV or other heavy object in its place. Also, be careful. Oil base paint takes a full month to reach a full cure and get hard. It can be easily scratched before it is fully cured.
