Well its back to the shop after a lot of traveling I hope to get these shelves done soon and start on the tile then the big job, building kitchen cabinets I have a tax id now so I can go to a supply house near me that only sells to contractors and you have to at least have a sales tax certificate to get be able to buy there at all so I am looking for some good pricing as well. Florida is strange with all the rules and license laws they have.

Not sure if this is what you need… When we painted kitchen cabinets with latex paint, we found that spilled coffee actually stained the surface. So when we did a subsequent kitchen we used an oil base paint. This resulted in a finish that was impermeable to water and did not stain from coffee. Definitely use a glossy finish. You want any splashed water to bead up and roll away.

The most vulnerable surfaces are the ones close to the floor, like the bottom-edge of the door and low-strung panels which take splashing water more often. The higher-up wood surfaces will be fine with any oil-based, like acrylic paint. For the door bottom you could put a layer of 2-part epoxy as undercoat. In any case, it may have to be redone after a few years. I would also suggest to maintain some gap between the door bottom and the floor.

I have a friend who tried a solution of thermocol bits dissolved in chloroform as an undercoat. He reports good success.

Buy some shellac, thin it 30% and use this as a sealer. Sand and apply a second coat. This should seal the particle boards. Apply a primer and top coat (or 2 or 3) – I use an oil based Rust-Oleum, primarily because it dries hard and looks nice.

Otherwise go to a pre-cat finish – commercial use and difficult to use unless you are doing production runs.
