The paint Kimberly used on the cabinets is Sherwin-Williams Interior Quali-Kote in Extra White.
"This is a commercial grade paint that needs to be asked for 'behind the counter.' I got this from my apartment basement, as they use this to repaint apartments when a tenant moves out. The high-quality commercial grade did not smell and sat well on top of cabinets. I did not sand or prime due to laziness."
