I finally got a coat of pink paint on the cabinet! It is coming out VERY nice - you can hardly tell the paint was rolled on. There are virtually no "orange peel" marks on the surface. I plan on applying 3-4 more coats of pink paint before moving on to the insane finishing process which consists of spray lacquer, 1500 grit sandpaper, rubbing compound and polish.
More pics are coming soon but here's a teaser:
Thanks for looking!!
