Anyone paint oak cabinets...and regret it??
I went to Benjamin Moore's today to get paint to take on our kitchen cabinets. Dh took tomorrow off, and with Mon being a holiday. That would give us four days. A GREAT start.
Well, I left empty handed.
The paint guy had me so scared about doing this, I was in tears. I FINALLY decide to just do it, and now I'm freaked out. He tells me oak isn't meant to be painted over. The grain shows terribly. And he has people coming back all the time, dissapointed in the end result.
Dh said it's like the guy at McDonald's talking me out of a cheeseburger, LOL.
I think it was more like him trying to talk me into a grilled chicken sandwich :) Doesn't look as good. Not what I REALLY want. But, better in the long run.
As he was trying to convince me to just use a gel or one step stain to change the appearance of my horrid honey oak cabinets. He showed me several examples. Not bad. Not painted cabs, though. Sigh.
