I didn't realize that there are paints that will determine if it will chip or how resistant to water they could be. It makes sense that this is something you would want to consider when doing a kitchen painting project. Knowing if it is going to chip or if water will leak would be a good and important thing.

A high quality post catalyzed conversion varnish is usually the best choice but if the budget allows a polyurethane will provide the best protection.

Stained wood cabinets are timeless. I remember a couple of years ago, every one painted their cabinets dark green. Now, nobody wants dark green-are those people stripping off that paint? Today, white is all the rage, 10 years from now, those same people will be paying out big money to replace them.
