Q:

I am considering painting my kitchen cabinets.  I friend told me it chips and gets dirty real easy after having been painted.   Also, she said when cleaning them they just got sticky!  How do I prevent that?    I know cabinet makers use special paint.  What kind of paint shoudl I use to get a good durable finish.  I believe the cabinets have been refinished in the past.  I think they were sanded down and a water based "varnish" put on them.  Do I have to use a water based paint now?  They do need to be sanded, as the previous "doer" did a horrible job.

Thank you.
