Am I crazy to consider painting over stain grade hickory?
In planning my mini-redesign, I keep going back to the current black/greenish granite countertops mixed with the orange/warm hickory cabinets and how the undertones just don't seem to work together. I'm trying to keep the granite - not because I love it (am not fond of the green tone, actually) but because I'm assuming it's cheaper than painting over the cabinets. I'm also considering replacing our tile floor with the same hickory hardwoods that cover the adjoining rooms and I think that will be wood overload.
However, the cabinets are really a nice stain grade hickory. Am I crazy to consider painting them a white color? Is it going to be really hard and time consuming and not as inexpensive as I'm imagining? Think I'll paint them and then kick myself that I did it?
