Painting wood cabinets---Please help

Posted by vmilmeis (My Page) on

I really need help with paint options for our new unfinished cabinets. What is the best type of paint to use. One painter said he primes than sprays lacquer. The other painter said he primes than sprays with either water based or oil based paint. Another person said she had used something called conversion varnish. Please weigh in as I have no idea which way to go. One painting company said that lacquer is not good around areas where there is water.
