Painting kitchen cabinets
I'm about to embark on the task of painting our 22 year old builders grade oak cabinets. I've read this site for days and the advice and tips are wonderful! I have a few questions that I need help with if possible:
1. I'm a painting novice, which paint would be best for me to work with? I've access to small BM and SW dealers, as well as big box HD and Lowes. I'm painting a dark chocolate color which seems to limit my paint choices due to the deep base needed. Would prefer to NOT use oil. Need something that will stand up to 4 young children.
2. I've seen Brushworks PDF mentioned numerous times but can't find it anywhere. Does anyone have a link to it?
3. Any opinions on deglosser vs. sanding?
Thanks for any help you can give!
