painter by trade (3rd generation).

i always use oil on cabinets as it is a harder, more durable finish than latex.

i sand the cabinets and prime them with a product called x-i-m 400 bonding primer. its a solvent based primer that adheres to the surface.

use a low nap mini roller, either mohair or velour. i recommend sherwin williams. x-i-m you may have to order or find someone who sells it, as sherwin williams discontinued carrying it.

sand the primer and dust it off so its smooth. then i finish with 2 coats of pro-classic oil. i like a satin finish. more of a warm glow type feel, rather than shiny and slick looking.

i also worked for sherwin williams for 5 years. so ive sold it and applied it. ive never had a customer call back about paint related issues.

Yeah mine are teens, and we used some "cabinet paint" specifically for cabinets. It's not the teens, it's everyone and everything. The paint just shows where it's always touched, etc.

This is the reason why I'm hesitant to do it

They come with a tesla charger that can be plugged into an outlet just like the one for your dryer. I had an electrician in to put an extra one in my garage. The charger that comes with the car isn't quite as fast as the dedicated Tesla charger, but those things are an extra 500 or so and will only charge your car a bit faster (or so I understand). I get about 25 miles of charge per hour with the plug in one, I hear the dedicated ones get like 30 or a bit more. That's not a lot, and if my car is finished charging overnight at 4 am rather than 3, who cares? Either way it's sitting there till 8.

How much has your electricity bill increased since you became a tesla owner?

As a native spanish speaker, hell yeah! I love the way GGM put his scenes into words! I love especially No One Writes to the Colonel. Nothing beats One Hundred Years of Solitude when speaking about putting scenes into words, though Chronicle of a Death Foretold is amazing too.

Here too! "Memorias de mis putas tristes" is great as well.
