Question....when you paint over something with a laquer finish, such as cabinets or other wood surfaces that have been laquered, arent you supposed to primer and sand it first, or just primer before painting? Ive noticed someone who 'hired professional painters' to paint a home and all of the surfaces that apparently had wood finishes that have been laquered, the paint has blistered and with large chunks of it peeling off like like crazy when you open a door or cabinet, how it sticks and causes the peeling effect. I understand Im not a professional but having worked for a home improvement place and being trained for certain fields of home improvement to an extent, and that in Az the heat doesnt help much when you try to control how much a/c you use, but regardless, it shouldnt blister and peel, am I correct?

I just assumed that "interior panting" would be in the "personal relationships" forum.

Yes, paint should not blister and peel.

Did you really need to ask that?

Guess I should have worded this better. Sorry. We know paint shouldn't blister and peel, I just was asking if maybe the lacquered surfaces weren't primered and/or sanded first, would that be the reason for this happening.

Yep.
I would have scuffed the surface AND primed before painting.

Are you referring to stained cabinetry/trim that is now painted (with no-telling what)?
Or are you referring to high gloss lacquer paint finish?

Depending on the type of wood I sometimes use sanding sealer, then primer (oil based- same as sanding sealer except with pigment/filler). Sanding sealer (no pigment/filler) tends to penetrate better leaving a better "sealed" surface to start with.

Don't even get me started with high gloss lacquer paint finishes- Let's just say it's a LOT OF WORK! And out of style.
