It only takes a minute to sign up. The paint job turned out good, with one issue. After weeks of drying, the paint is still slightly tacky. That is a problem, because when I put a significantly weighted object on top of the dresser and leave it on for a while, it 'peels' off.
Even worse, sometimes you will find that the paint peels off when you pick up an item stored on the shelf. This is not a matter of the paint simply not being fully dry—it sometimes continues to happen weeks after the paint has dried. If shelves were not thoroughly cleaned before repainting, contaminants might be seeping through the paint and causing the sticking problem. In this case, the best solution may be to re-sand, re-clean, and re-paint the shelves with a good quality alkyd or acrylic paint.
