I have sanded, primed and then painted my pressed wood kitchen cabinets two times. On a sample cabinet the first time I used a water based semi gloss paint and I applied with a foam roller. Color was great but my cabinet had a real rough finish after I applied primer & paint. Second time( on back side of sample cabinet) I used a oil based primer and semi gloss paint and first applied with foam roller then lightly with paint brush. Now it is way too shiney . Can I sand the shiney oil based paint and put a final coat of the water based black?

So are you saying that the second time you used an oil based primer and an oil based finish coat?

Are you sanding after you apply the primer?

Yes, first I sanded, then primed with oil base primer, sanded then painted with oil based paint. It is semi-gloss but looks too shiney... like a mirror. I wanted a dull shine like the sample in the store but it is much, much more glossier. Also, I used a form roller first, then went lightly over with a paint brush. It still shows some paint brush strokes. Is the only way I'll get a professional look is by spray painting?

If the semi gloss is to shiney then what you need to find is a satin black in oil based paint, but bear in mind that a satin will noy hold up as well on cabinets as a semi gloss.

To help with the brush marks be sure you have a good professional grade chinese bristle brush and you may want to get some Penetrol to add to the paint which will help with flow and leveling.

Hope this helps out.
