Paint Under Oven Bubbling

Hello! I have a wooden drawer that is part of the cabinets that I painted. The paint bubbled up on the 3 inches or so that is near the oven. I decided to repaint it, so I sanded it down and then thought I should ask if there is any protective coating I could put on it first to prevent it from happening again.

I see heat resistant spray paints for BBQs and engines. Could I use something like that on wood?? Or is there something else that would work better. Thanks!

The wood shouldn't have gotten hot enough to make the paint bubble, if it does then there is an issue with the oven. It's more likely there was a contaminant on the wood that repelled the fresh paint.

almost forgot welcome to the forums!

Putting something over the top won't help when the problem is adhesion of the paint. A better grade of paint and better prep before painting might help. There is probably a lot more to this story that we don't know.
