I moved into a house with old oak cabinets and pinkish formica countertops. I painted the cabinets the same (or very similar) color red. They looked fantastic. When I sold the house they got a lot of complements from realtors. Red is streaky and takes multiple layers to get it one solid color. I didn't fill in the wood grain (I did prime the wood) and stopped while it was still a little streaky (after 2 red coats if I remember correctly). Between the slight variations in the red and the wood grain showing it looked very warm and natural.
