Painting Kitchen Cabinets - Currently Glazed
I've searched threads here, without luck. DD2's home has builder's grade oak cabinets that were recently painted (four months ago) that didn't turn out as expected. Color is just wrong. A small end table done as a test looked great, but on the cabinets - not so much.
They used products the BM dealer recommended - deglosser, primer, dark chocolate brown paint, medium dark green coat over that (put on with an older brush so that some of the brown shows through), THEN a glaze over that. It reminds me of methods my grandmother used on a teacart in the 70s.
Now DD2 wants to paint over them using BM paint. Probably an off-white on top and maybe a medium gray on bottom. In her dream world, the bottom would be some shade of turquoise, but I'm not sure that's a good idea.
Anyway, she doesn't cook that much so no grease on the cabinets. I read a link to website that talked about the 6 steps. Surely to Buddha that's not necessary this time around.
Ok, experts, what needs to be done so that the paint stays and looks good. She has eclectic taste, with a mix of old and new. Doesn't mind roughed up, painted vintage pieces but don't think she wants to go so far as using Ann Sloan's chalk paint and roughing them up.
Thanks in advance.
