Calling all cabinet painting pros! Have to buy paint tonight

15 years ago

I am new to the forum and currently in the middle of a kitchen facelift. We bought new paint-grade maple doors and are painting the cabinets (which were already painted a darker cream) BM Mayonaisse. The painter recommended the waterborne satin impervo but the salesperson at the BM store said the alkyd (oil-based) would be a much nicer finish and more durable. I am concerned about using the alkyd because the kitchen doesn't get much sunlight and I don't want drastic yellowing. Will the oil-based really yellow that much? Can I use the waterborne paint over the alkyd primer that I already purchased? Any help is greatly appreciated!
