Painting old oak cabinets
The finish on my 20 year old kitchen cabinets is worn as well as being a hideous golden oak. I would like to paint them but am worried about the grain showing through as well pores appearing in the paint. I am not sure how to proceed as most DIY guides simply have you sand, high build prime and paint with an acrylic type paint.
I've read through some of the threads here but the folks who reply only reference products that are only available online and are very costly, like brushing putty and swedish putty.
Anyway, I was wondering if I even need a grain filler if I use a high build primer. Any specific brands for either product would be helpful. Also, I was planning on using cabinet coat paint as the finish coat, so any hints about compatible products or a good alternative would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading
