Re: Painting Kitchen Cabinets
I wouldn't recommend that style of painting in a kitchen environment. What a PITA to have to try to keep clean. Leave it a smooth painted surface, you'll be much happier with it.
If your cabinets are anything like mine, then they're photo-finished, which is a fancy way of saying a pretty picture is printed onto paper and glued to the cabinet surfaces. You can paint this, but you're going to want to clean them first with TSP and a light sanding to just scuff up the surface and give the paint something to adhere to.
As for color, I'd stick with traditional white/off white and use complimentary accent colors for the room walls. Painting cabinets is a pain, you don't want to have to repaint them again any time soon, walls are easy to paint, hence using them for color spots.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
