1. What paint did you use and from where?
2. I'm guessing it was sprayed. I have heard that you need to use a thinner for paints that go into a sprayer and some "hardener (?)". Is that what you have used.
3. How many coats of primer and paint did you do?
I love your finish. Looks very professional.
Also, did you use plywood to build them or something else?
painted by others / not sprayed / must have a primer coat & should have two additional top coats / durable paint for woodwork / don't try to spray if you haven't done it before
furniture grade plywood is used everywhere except for face frames, moldings and all edges (countertops, etc)

That is such a huge improvement. Had a friend in Mahopac whose parents house had a wall like that.

The cabinetry really makes the room. Well done!
