So the doors are done – I took all the advice here and the paint went on nice and wet and no issues…sort of.

I have them all mounted now and they look ok. I’m the biggest critic and my wife only requested I re-do one door (they are raised panel doors and one of them the grain is super heavy on the curved portion of raised part and the paint looks super wavy because there is a light right about it). However, I’m not real happy with the finish on some of them. This water based enamel (Aqua Alkyd by hallman lindsay) takes on a very plastic look when you get it heavy, which occurred on some of the doors. I’m sure to the average person it looks fine, but its bothering me. Really tempted to take some scotchbrite pads to it to maybe take a little of the sheen down or something. Not really sure what to do.
