I want to use cloud white on my cabinets but the cabinet maker says that Ben Moore does not do well on cabinet

Ben Moore paint is not for cabinets. Can you help me out because I really love the Cloud White color! Thanks

Benjamin Moore's "ben" paint line a waterborne paint. Benjamine Moore has other paint lines as well. White Cloud is a color available in most of these lines.

If you check the Benjamin Moore website, they say specifically the "ben" semi-gloss is suitable for cabinets. See: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/for-your-home/product-catalog?prod=ben_Waterborne_Interior_Paint#piSheen=627&tab=2

Maybe your painter doesn't like using the "ben" paint line. I would talke to the paint dealer if you have any more questions about this issue.

I used cloud white on my kitchen cabinets and fireplace and has held up extremely well. Just make sure you are using melamine paint.

Sherwin Williams color matched all of my Ben Moore 'colors'.
If you can find the paint that you need most anyone can get the color right. Nice color!

BMoore products are excellent, if you speak with them they have a special line of paint best suited for painting cabinets, which you can get in all colours.

I used the Benjamin Moore Aura (Satin). I like the Aura because no priming was needed although at the dealer they recommended another new product better suited for cupboards. The product they recommended required primiing first so I decided not to use it. I made sure that my cupboards were prepped properly (sanding and washed with TSP) before painting.

I love Ben Moore paint. Our paint specialist reccommended The iron clad low lustre metal and wood enamel. Prep the cabinets with tsp and a light sand and it truly does not need priming. Painted 3 years ago and the finish is holding up wonderfully. Both the white and the charcoal grey. Best wishes!!
