I have a few cabinets and shop stands that I would like to paint but not sure what best paint type for them. It will be in the garage so all weather is needed.

I primed and painted my shop cabinets with white interior latex paint with a roller and brush. In the two car garage the paint has held up fine. An exterior version could be used if concerned about the weather. My cabinets are wood, plywood, and hardboard surfaces. I choose white to reflect as much light as possible. If I were I to do it again, I would use gloss white for the added reflectivity.

Have your say...
