Advance or Satin Impervo (oil would be best but the waterborne would work also)

Thanks. I don't consider myself an amateur, I have painted for a number of years, but just not a lot of cabinets. I've sprayed some, but not enough to feel that comfortable, so I don't want to attempt it. Do you have a recommendation of which paint? I think I've ruled out Cabinet Coat since it only comes in a satin.

 I want the brand that will level the best without a huge learning curve I don't want orange peel or brush marks.

Then you either need them sprayed or a professional painter that has done a lot of cabinets.(or both)

I have a good amount of experience painting but have not done any painting to speak of for a few years. I plan to paint some oak cabinets by hand. I will probably stay with Zinsser 123 for my primer. I'm debating using a mini mohair cover for my final finish unless I'm convinced to roll and back-brush or just brush. I haven't used B.Moore's Advance alkyd, Cabinet Coat, or S.Williams's acrylic alkyd.  I never use oil anymore, but I really don't like the quick drying paint these days. I've heard most waterborne alkyds take a long time to cure well. I want the brand that will level the best without a huge learning curve I don't want orange peel or brush marks. I will use an extender. Thanks for any suggestions.

What are your suggestions on:

rolling, rolling and back-brushing, just brushing and the best paint to use?

no, i mean something along the lines of "thompsons water sealer" or any paint supplier proprietary water sealer.....but your biggest problem would be testing costs if you want to be sure...i say throw caution to the wind and bomb it.....i say get some water sealer, put it in a empty spray bottle,  take the rug out in the sun, lay it on a flat surface such as concrete and start spraying it...good luck

Thanks! But unclear: do you mean like Minwax or something? This has a nap to it--just about .25" but it isn't a flat weave.

Thank you.
