Can I paint bathroom cabinets dark brown?

Posted by linnybinny (My Page) on

We are remodeling (resurfacing, really) our master bathroom. Our current cabinets are original 1970s that I'm sure have been repainted white or some variation of it about a thousand times. We don't have it in the budget to replace the cabinets, so I was wondering if we can paint them a high-gloss dark brown? If so, any color suggestions? I use Sherwin-williams paints. I was thinking about something at the bottom of the paint chip -- too dark?? Thanks y'all!

I love dark brown and am also considering doing a bathroom cabinet in that color. I say, if you love it, go for it!

So I was thinking... do you do a high-gloss or matte paint??

We are painting our vanity SW black bean at 60% saturation. They are dark but impressive. We are having dark floors, bainbrook granite and grayish brown walls. It's still a work in process.
We did oil based satin finish.

I painted my vanity black and used a very high gloss paint. It's not the best picture I took it with my phone but it might give you an idea in how a dark color looks.

Go ahead, paint them with your favorite color, if you have really thought of painting them so - THOUSAND TIMES :) :)
