would you paint wood cabinets?
I figure most people on this forum probably love wood and original features like I do, so this is where I want to ask this. Our new old kitchen is ... gross to say the least. Had a cleaning crew in, they couldn't get rid of the sticky on the cabinets, were afraid anything else would ruin them, but hey, at least they are kinda clean now. I just read another post about a similar topic, may try those suggestions.
However, these cabinets are very dark anyway. Too dark. Or maybe that is just because the rest of the kitchen is so blah? So, what would you do? Would you attempt to clean completely and hope the finish doesn't get ruined? Clean "enough", then prime and paint? Would you attempt cleaning for now then try to refinish them yourself a different stain later? Something else I haven't thought of?
The back splash and counter are old, worn laminate. They can't be changed right now, so will be painted ... some color, who knows? Floor also has to stay as is.
