I have kitchen cabinets that are peeling. The mfr has told me they were painted with “white polyester paint.” After I sand-paper the peeling surfaces, how do I repair the paint. Is there a primer I should use? What kind of primer and paint do I ask for? How many coats do I use? Any suggestions will be helpful. Thank you in advance for your aid and comfort.
Sand everything smooth paying special attention to the peeling areas. Clean everything to remove the dust and now use a good stain blocking oil base primer. A good acrylic semi-gloss paint can be used for the finish but an oil base is better. Go to your local paint store, not a hardware store, and ask for their best cabinet paint.
It will take one maybe two coats of both primer and two or more coats of paint, depends on application method.
