Help! I want to make my oak cabinets stylish without paint!
March 2, 2013
1. Do people REALLY hate 90's golden/honey oak cabinets (even if they are in great condition) because they truly are ugly, or because they hear everyone else say they hate them and are afraid they are out of style? Be honest!
2. Can golden/honey oak cabinets look stylish in an Old World rustic style kitchen with stainless steel appliances and nice counters, etc?

Do you have a pic? I think it really is about personal taste some really grainy oak cabinets are out of style. You can refinish the cabinets with a more modern stain or depending on your style there are some old world rustic color stains that can can also change hardware to bring them up to date . As for painting them they do really look nice we have done plenty of cabinet painting jobs and they look great, you can't even tell that use to be oak cabinets.

I had a similar epiphany with old pine wood in a ski apartment. I was trying to work against it for ages when suddenly I thought why not work with it? It turned out to be a pretty good idea - one of my most copied to ideabooks on Houzz! But it all boils down to the bones of the object - are they good enough to be salvaged and used in a modern context or will you stay stuck with them back in the decade they were created.
