    Default Tacky Paint Job

    I painted my kitchen cabinets many years ago. About 6 months ago I lightly sanded and applied a fresh coat of paint - in a few spots the paint is still sort of sticky or tacky - what should I try? Re-sand, mineral spirits, primer??

    What kind of paint was used the first time? The second time? How old was the paint applied the second time?

    Sorry about that - latex paint and the paint was about 4 years old - so maybe on the edge. One more aspect to note - the paint is only sticky/tacky on certain cupboards - some are fine and some not.

    Sand off the tacky stuff and buy new paint to apply.
