Painting Cabinets in Golden Gardens Seattle. The cabinet faces are at our shop 2720 6th place south in Sodo. Inplace structure will be prepped and finished onsite. The red filler is a modified Bondo; we use red because our two coat process even with white paint will cover all of our fill work.

We are removing the grain on this cabinet set. Read more about cabinet painting http://www.shearerpainting.com/blog/seattle-painted-kitchen-cabinets/

2011 was the year the water borne oil finish enamel finally arrived as a true replacement for traditional oil enamel for trim and cabinets. Environmental regulation and consumer demand has slowly pushed out oil base paints and replaced them with water-base equivalent; this trend as been building slowly over the last ten years. The early attempts by paint manufacturers to create quality water borne enamels was less than successful as those products were not easy to apply nor was the finished product durable as customers expected from “enamel” paints. The primary challenge manufacturers had to overcome was to develop a water borne enamel that was also durable and low VOC.

Historically the term “enamel” paint specifically meant a durable gloss oil based protective finish. Now “enamel” is used to describe any coating designed as a durable finish. If you search the internet for “matte” or “flat” enamel you will find many different paint products labeled as such, although the term “matte enamel” is an oxymoron taken in its original meaning and intent.

The two primary water clean-up, oil finish enamel paints available on the Market are:
1. Benjamin Moore Advanced
2. Sherwin Williams Proclassic

In 2011 we extensively used both products on our house painting projects. Here is our review.

Both products are viable alternatives to oil base enamels.

Colorants Advanced supports the GENNEX waterborne colorant system providing VOC-free colorants. Advance is a true alkyd, not a hybrid. Advanced has less than 50 VOC per liter. Pro-classic is also less than 50 grams VOC per liter, but uses the standard glycol based universal colorant system which can add significant VOC for darker colors.

Hardness Advanced and Proclassic are nearly as hard after cure than oil based enamels. In our experience, Advanced cures harder than Proclassic. Both paints should be allowed to cure for a week to judge final finish. Best practice for heavy use should be a one month cure.

Application Both paints have a learning curve as they have different characteristics than virtually any other paints. The paints are very thin and need to be applied in multiple coats. If sprayed the paint should not be reduced with water or any extenders.

Very Convenient location to downtown. I first found Dr. Wolff from reading his blog. I do agree with most of Dr. Wolff's insights. What makes Dr. Wolff unique is his sincere dedication to understanding health and well being. He answered all of my questions. Specifically Dr. Wolff helped me understand how my body (I am 43) can be cared for maximum health and quality of life. I have spent most of my life being hard on my body (wrestling, martial arts, aggressive snowboarding, etc)..now I am at a desk.. I have referred many friends with stressful desk jobs (yes Amazon...). Dr. Wolff, his staff all very professional and on time..highly recommend.

My name is John Shearer and I am a painting contractor. I have know Damon, the owner of American Home Painting Inc. for 20 years. Damon is honest and runs a trustworthy and well respected company as evidenced by becoming elected as the President of our local painting association. I would trust Damon to paint my own home. This is the only testimonial I have written for a painting contractor.

This place is packed for lunch and dinner so get a reservation if you have a large party. The duck, squash soup, and seven flavor beef are can't miss. Parking in the adjoining building. Chef Jackie Lo is inspired and blends vietnamese, thai, and chinese into a unique menu with monthly feature dishes.

I walked into Gian's shop in October 1999. A trusted friend had suggested I make a suit and 4 shirts for a planned trip abroad. 12 years later; I have at least 2 suits, 2 sport coats, 15 pants, and 20 shirts. I owe a great deal to Gian for his help in putting together my wardrobe, which expresses my character, personality, and lifestyle. My only complaint is that the clothes never wear out, or certainly take too long to do so. Therefore, I must merely purchase what my heart desires, rarely replacing a worn-out item. At best, I might be simply tired of wearing something. I do know this; one day my grandson will still be wearing my vintage fabric Dormeuil suit. When I had it made in 2010, the fabric had been unearthed amongst the fabrics from Gian's father's tailor shop. When I saw it, it was love at first sight. You truly owe yourself the same bespoke experience.

Last time I was here July, it had not changed a bit. A place to take kids (i suggest 7+) but not really for adults. I liked the classic games upstairs but the new dance machines and crotch rocket immersion games are not my style. Most inspired game design is centered on consoles and online. The food is mediocre and very overpriced.

My wife wanted to come here for her Birthday in November. We completely enjoyed the experience. The service were available but not intrusive. Executive Chef Peter Levine is one of the best in the city..hands down. We could not recommend this place more..As 20 year Seattle residents this is where we will bring our out of town guests.
