Call Out: Who has Finished Their own Cabinets
If you've painted or stained your new cabinets, we would love to hear how difficult you found the process and any suggestions you have so that we might get a good result. Do you believe one process, paint or stain, is easier than the other?
We are about to place an order for new UNFINISHED cabinets. We are still up in the air over doing either -- stain or paint. We will be finishing the cabinets ourselves.
Cabinets will be hard (eastern) maple and the cabinet doors will be a raised panel style with some little grooves on edges. We do have company who will work with us to create a custom stain (or stain/dye combination) to get to the medium color we would want.
Our other choice is to become competent enough to paint the cabinets with a sprayer, and then maybe do some glazing.
We might decide to stain the perimeter, and paint the island, so maybe we'll be doing both types.
Can we do this???
