Re: exterior paint on kitchen cabinets?
I'm a Moore Impervo enamel (oil) kind of guy, and I have found it self-levels very well, and it is cleanable time after time, but as with any oil paint the whites will yellow over time.
I have seen and heard great things about a acrylic/ceramic enamel called "Cabinet Coat". From the pictures it is as smooth as anything out there (the brushed work looks sprayed) and with the special composition it dries harder than oil. It will not yellow, either. The seeming drawback is that it can only be mixed in a certain range of colors, all of them light tints or white.
Regular semi-gloss trim paint would not be satisfactory to me for cabinets, as it will not take repeated cleanings. You could topcoat it with an acrylic poly, but your just going on top of something IMO inferior; check out the cabinet coat first and save a step or two.

Remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set.
