I'm ready to undertake the task of painting the kitchen of our circa 1812 house. I mean the whole kitchen. What's the correct order? Painting the walls, the countertop (Rustoleum treatment) and painting the cabinets. The walls will be off white from a wallpapered garbled something, cabinets will be going from a light wood stain to sage green, and the countertop from scratched and nasty white to a dark brown.
