Need advice for my kitchen cabinets
September 15, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We have honey oak cabinets in our kitchen that are in good condition. We just want a new, updated look. My kitchen is french country/tuscan decor, and I'm looking to paint the cabinets off-white. Would it be better to paint the cabinets or stain them? I spoke to a painter who said he would recommend using a pickling stain on them so they wouldn't chip, and it would hide the grain of the oak, which is what I want. Is this the way to go?
