I would love to hear comments and see photos from readers who have used Annie Sloan chalk pain to paint kitchen and/or bathroom cabinets, particularly to paint over what I believe are referred to as "builder's oak" cabinets. I'm too chicken to try it myself without having some idea as to the effort involved and results.

@kistone: See the armoire I painted above! It was a plain oak piece of furniture, no different from the oak cabinets you are describing. Just stained and varnished oak! I used a good basic furniture cleaner (Formby's) to thoroughly clean the piece before painting. If there are any trouble spots you can also lightly sand them out. The nice thing about AS paints is that no major prep is required. My armoire turned out really well; even my husband likes it (he was initially not thrilled about me painting it ;)
