Staining painted cabinets
This is my 1st post and I'm excited to have joined the board. A little background, I bought this house 2 years ago and I'm ready to re-do the house. The kitchen cabinets are a lovely "smoker's yellow" color and I HATE it. So the cabinets are wood but I'm looking to stain them. Here's a link
So I've started priming them with Zinser primer. and I'm looking to stain them to look like the pictures in the links. Suggestions? What color do I need to paint them as a base coat over the primer? Should I used oil based or latex? I'm going to use the gelstain by Miniwax but I can't figure out what colors...? If I use the gel stain do I even need to paint a base coat?
Thanks, this is my 1st staining project so I'm lost!
