My next door neighbor just had his old wood cabinets painted, and the finish looks like porcelain! He wasn't there while it was done, so he's not sure what kind of paint they used or how it was applied. I can tell you this, it makes my high-gloss Sherwin-williams paint job look cheap. Any ideas on how it was done, or what type of paint was used?

Many painters will use the highest quality oil paints for cabinets, doors and trim, and thin them down and spray with a finishing tip for a smoother finish, more coats are nesasary for coverage, but the appearence will resemble a car's finish, and using a gloss white will make it porcelain like. Also a good undercoater and proper sanding, puttying, calking and prep work.

I like to use white lacquer undercoater thinned about 1/4, I use Ben. Moores "Impervo" thinned about 1/4 to 1/3. The results are glass-like.
